As the economy continues to boom, President Trump’s approval ratings on economic issues are also on the rise — and he has now surpassed the approval rating President Obama received on the issue for the majority of his presidency.
According to a new Rasmussen Reports poll, 49 percent of likely voters rate Trump’s handling of economic issues as good or excellent. This is a whopping 39% bump from just one year ago.

Speaking in Minnesota on Wednesday, President Trump vowed to continue improving the economy by cutting regulations. It has been reported that the administration has eliminated 22 regulations for every new one it implemented.
The economy is doing so well that liberals are very publicly starting to panic. Bill Maher openly stated earlier this month that he is hoping for a recession to hurt support for the president.
“I feel like the bottom has to fall out at some point, and by the way, I’m hoping for it because I think one way you get rid of Trump is a crashing economy,” Maher said during the June 8 show. “So please, bring on the recession. Sorry if that hurts people but it’s either root for a recession, or you lose your democracy.”
The national survey of 1,000 likely voters was conducted from June 17-18.
