He dropped to minus-15 on Oct. 7.

Trump’s numbers are slightly better than his predecessor, Barack Obama, who had a 51% approval rating on the same day in his first term.

Rasmussen was one of the most accurate pre-election national polls, reporting on Nov. 2 that Democrat Joe Biden led Trump 48%-47%
