Cherry Picked

...but hey, do what you will anyway.

Rasmussen surveys 500 likely voters every night and reports those results on a three-day rolling average basis.

Wow, a whole 500 people. How many Americans are there?

Let's see what the poll looks like with 9,000 people...
Trump’s June approval rating is the lowest we’ve seen, but it’s not that far off from the previous low, in April, when it was around 43.2 percent.


In early May, Trump approval was hovering around 40 percent. Lately, it’s been hovering around 38 percent.


Our data, which comes from monthly, nationally representative online surveys of about 9,000 people, shows the same pattern.


Because our survey is large and sensitive enough to detect minute differences from month to month, we can say that this dip of 2 percentage points is not the result of a random fluke.


According to the Vox / Surveymonkey survey of economic confidence, both Republicans and Democrats have been firm in their views of the president, despite all the recent drama. Between May and June, only independent voters had a noticeable decline in opinion.

And that's even with the positive news on economy and jobs.
