Trump Tweets Graphic of His ‘Soaring’ Approval Rating - But It’s Wrong

Real Clear Politics, which takes an average of a number of polls, shows the president with a 43.2 approval rating and 52.7 disapproval rating.

The poll that was cited in the graphic was from the Georgetown Institute of Politics, but that poll didn't show Trump's overall approval at 55%, as shown in the graphic. Meanwhile, nearly all the polls show that people believe the country is heading in the wrong direction.

The president shared the Fox graphic with incorrect poll numbers on his Twitter account to his almost 60 million followers, along with the caption: "Great news!"

An on-air correction was also offered on Fox News Channel.

The graphic, produced by the Fox Business Network and aired on "Lou Dobbs Tonight", indicated that Trump's overall job approval was 55 percent while his approval on handling the economy was 58 percent.

President Donald Trump enthusiastically shared an image of a poll broadcast by Fox Business' Lou Dobbs on Wednesday evening, showing his approval rating "soaring" at 55 percent.

President Trump's approval rating is 43 percent according to a new poll from Georgetown.

To be clear: Trump's disapproval is 55%, according to that poll.

As of late Thursday morning, Trump's tweet about the poll remained in his feed.

While Trump has a long leash on the economy, 58 per cent of voters worry about an economic downturn and 57 per cent say the country is on the wrong track.

The Trump administration praised March's job numbers released last week, which was good news compared to February's jobs report that showed just 20,000 jobs were added to the economy. The Labor Department also said the number of people seeking unemployment benefits fell to a 49-year low.
