To Sydney Morning Herald correspondent Paul McGeough, Donald Trump is a fascist, liar and vandal who is dividing the US and inspiring massive resistance.

But to the Rasmussen poll, Trump is a leader getting good support from the silent majority, to judge by the latest figures:

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 57% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-three percent (43%) disapprove.

The latest figures include 42% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 33% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of +9 (see trends).

Thirty-eight percent (38%) of voters think the country is heading in the right direction, the highest level of confidence in four years. It’s important to note, though, that this survey wrapped up the night before Trump’s inauguration.

You would never guess – if you relied on Fairfax and the ABC for your fake news – that Trump is attracting that level of approval.
