President Trump's approval ratings hit an all-time high of 50% -- surging past former President Obama's approval ratings in 2010.
A new Rasmussen poll released Thursday shows 50% of Americans polled approve of Trump's job performance so far.
Trump's current approval rating is 5 points higher than Obama's rating was 18 months into his first term in 2010.
Rasmussen approval ratings are considered the gold standard of judging presidential job performance. It carries a lot of weight with voters, and the news media consistently refers to the Rasmussen poll -- until today.
Several Leftist news organizations minimized Trump's new approval ratings, saying Trump's disapproval ratings are more significant.
In unrelated news, a new painting showing Trump in a boat crossing the Washington D.C "swamp" has sparked outrage on social media. Liberals are triggered by the painting because Trump campaigned on a promise to drain the swamp, aka the establishment politicians in Washington who pretend to care about America's interest but are really only concerned with their hidden agendas.
The painting, titled "Crossing the Swamp", is the work of American artist Jon McNaughton, who tweeted a photo of the painting, along with caption: "Never give up. Never lower your light. Never stop till the swamp is dry."
McNaughton draws is inspiration for the painting from the famous 1851 Emanuel Leutze painting titled Washington Crossing the Delaware.
