At the same point in his presidency in 2012, former President Barack Obama saw a similar approval rating of 53 percent among likely voters.
Since November 6, Trump’s job approval has remained steady above 50 percent, with Trump reaching 53 percent on November 11.
The data from the poll also included 41 percent of voters who stated they “strongly approve” of Trump’s job performance, while 41 percent also said they “strongly disapprove,” giving him a presidential approval index rating of zero.
