On the same say, Rasmussen said the president had 50 percent approval, with 50 percent disapproval, Gallup put him at 38 percent approval and a CNBC poll put Trump at 37 percent.

President Trump is right in the fact that the Rasmussen Poll, one of the worst performing polls when it comes to his job approval, showed a 50% approval upon its release on Thursday.

The polling results indicate a mixed bag for Trump but mark a noticeable bump for his approval rating compared to other surveys. It's even less common to find a sitting U.S. President bragging about their approval ratings while also blatantly lying. "This hyper-partisanship and the increasingly tribal nature of politics, where Republicans look at a Republican president and see no flaws and Democrats look at a Republican president and can only see flaws".

Asked to rate the job Congress is doing, 15 percent said they approve, while 67 percent disapprove.

President Donald Trump is beginning his day with a stream of tweets defending his record and lashing out at the investigation into Russian interference in the election. Combining results from Republicans, Democrats, and Independents, more than 75 percent of Americans are anxious about the path forward under GOP leadership. Once again, the answers were colored by party affiliation: 74 percent of Democratic voters said yes, while 80 percent of Republican voters said no.

Exactly two-thirds of Americans said they did not approve of how Trump is handling health care reform, while about the same about (64%) said they did not approve of Trump's climate change policies. O'Rourke, who has never run for office outside of El Paso, isn't a name brand yet: 13 percent of Texas voters have a neutral opinion of him, but 55 percent have no opinion at all.

The University of Texas/Texas Tribune internet survey of 1,200 registered voters was conducted from June 2 to June 11 and has an overall margin of error of +/- 2.83 percentage points. Nearly half of Texas voters - 49 percent - have "somewhat" or "very" unfavorable views of the ACA, while 51 percent put the House plan in that same category.
