Poll: Trump's approval rating plummets 20 points in poll he called 'most accurate'

In June, President Donald Trump touted on Twitter a 50 percent approval rating in a poll he called the "most accurate" during the 2016 presidential election.

Fast forward a little over a month later, and Trump's numbers have plummeted 20 percentage points in that same Rasmussen survey, giving the billionaire businessman-turned-politician yet another sub-40 percent job approval rating, but this time in a poll he's openly praised for its accuracy.

According to Monday's daily presidential tracking poll from Rasmussen, Trump currently holds a 39 percent approval rating -- another record low and his lowest number since taking office for this specific poll.

Rasmussen, which traditionally finds results that are more positive for Republicans than other polls, has consistently showed the president with a higher job approval rating than other mainstream surveys.

The president, who has otherwise consistently made his distrust of negative polling clear, tweeted an image in June displaying his then 50 percent approval rating from Rasmussen, writing, "The new Rasmussen Poll, one of the most accurate in the 2016 Election, just out with a Trump 50% Approval Rating.That's higher than O's #'s!"

But even at that very moment in June other polls were showing Trump with a significantly lower approval rating, including Gallup which had the president's approval at just 39 percent and his disapproval at 55 percent.

According to the latest Gallup poll released on Sunday, just 37 percent of Americans approve of the job the president is doing in the White House.
