President Trump recently took a moment to thank Americans for their support of his job performance. In a tweet Thursday, the president said he will continue to work hard as a Rasmussen poll now shows his approval rating is at 50-percent. This rating is three-points higher than Barack Obama had during the same point of his first term.

President Trump’s approval rating is expected to climb even higher as a separate Harris Poll found 24-percent of voters are now more likely to support him, following the conclusion of the Mueller probe.
Meanwhile, Democrats appear to be lacking support from voters as they push for more investigations into the president and his administration.
According to a Rasmussen poll released Thursday, 61-percent of all likely voters believe it is time for the party to move on now that the special counsel has finished the Russia investigation. Only 31-percent of likely voters sided with congressional Democrats.
Over a thousand people took part in the survey, which was conducted the day after Attorney General William Barr released his summary of the Mueller report.
