Interesting Prolix. But not earth shaking to realize that the screamers and whiners (in both parties) can influence perceptions AWAY from facts. Trump has the same numbers as Obama. Facts, it's what's for breakfast!
The difference is the media portrayal of both presidents. While the media fawned all over Obama his entire first year (hell, he even got a nobel peace prize just for being a black guy since he had no real accomplishments in his first 12 months), their coverage of Trump has been well over 90% negative.

You're both delusional. Trumpty has got 32% apoproval rating. Sag I can't believe you actually support the douchebag. Par for the course as they say.
Time magazine has described Rasmussen Reports as a "conservative-leaning polling group." The Washington Post called Rasmussen a "polarizing pollster." John Zogby said that Scott Rasmussen has a "conservative constituency." The Center for Public Integrity listed "Scott Rasmussen Inc" as a paid consultant for the 2004 George W. Bush campaign. The Washington Post reported that the 2004 Bush re-election campaign had used a feature on the Rasmussen Reports website that allowed customers to program their own polls, and that Rasmussen asserted that he had not written any of the questions nor assisted Republicans.
Rasmussen has received criticism over the wording in its polls. Asking a polling question with different wording can affect the results of the poll; the commentators in question allege that the questions Rasmussen ask in polls are skewed in order to favor a specific response. For instance, when Rasmussen polled whether Republican voters thought Rush Limbaugh was the leader of their party, the specific question they asked was: "Agree or Disagree: 'Rush Limbaugh is the leader of the Republican Party?he says jump and they say how high.'"
