According to Rasmussen Reports, 51 percent of likely voters approve of the job Trump has done now that he is 47 days into his presidency, while 49 percent disapprove. Thirty-seven percent of those voters strongly approve of how he is handling the office as 38 percent say they strongly disapprove.

The same poll — which surveyed an estimated 1500 people — also found that 26 percent of voters agreed that creating more jobs is most important task Trump has in office. The president emphasized jobs in his first speech to a joint session of Congress last week.

Though Trump’s approval rating has hovered around the 50 percent mark in the Rasmussen poll, others show that it is much lower. In the Reuters poll, Trump’s approval rating is closer to 40 percent.
