President Donald Trump’s job approval on Friday, July 24, hit the highest level since the middle of May as he is coming back and is running neck-and-neck with the presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
A daily poll by Rasmussen on Friday showed that 49% of likely U.S. voters approve of President Trump’s job performance, while 49% disapprove.
Earlier this week, Rasmussen released its weekly White House Watch survey, which showed that President Trump and the former vice president are “near even” in their race.
The weekly survey found that Biden had 47% of the vote, Trump had 45%, while another 5% preferred some other candidate and 4% remain undecided.
A week before, Biden held a 47% to 44% advantage after leading Trump by 10 points—50% to 40%—in Rasmussen’s first weekly White House Watch survey.
“President Trump and likely Democratic nominee Joe Biden are now running neck-and-neck,” the pollster said of its survey conducted with 2,500 likely voters from July 15 to July 16 and July 19 to July 21.
The new survey found that Trump had 81% of the Republican vote, while Biden had 74% of Democrats. Among voters not affiliated with either major party, Biden had 47% of their support, Trump had 36%, but 17% of these voters like another candidate or are undecided.
