President Trump’s approval rating jumped five points after it was announced that Special Counsel Robert Mueller completed his investigation, according to the latest Rasmussen daily presidential tracking poll.
Trump is now up to a 50 percent approval rating according to Thursday’s results, up five points from his Monday and Friday rating of 45 percent.
This is the highest rating for Trump since he topped 50 percent in the beginning of March. He reached 51 percent approval around Thanksgiving of last year.
Attorney General William Barr released the “principal conclusions” of the Mueller report on Sunday which stated unequivocally that the Trump campaign did not collude with Russia during the 2016 election.
Mueller’s report did not reach a conclusion on whether or not President Trump obstructed justice and left the decision to the Department of Justice. The DOJ concluded there was insufficient evidence of obstruction.
