Trump's approval drops days after posting on Twitter about 50 percent rating

Just days after President Trump posted on Twitter about his support rising in a new poll, his numbers have once again dropped below the 50 percent mark.

The latest Rasmussen daily presidential tracking poll released on Monday shows that 48 percent of Americans now say they approve of the job Trump is doing, which is down two points since the president shared an image celebrating his support reaching 50 percent.

Rasmussen has become an outlier poll as other major survey have the president's approval rating hovering around 38-40 percent pretty consistently.
