President Donald Trump has been caught in another lie after he claimed that his approval ratings are much better than those of former President Barack Obama.
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!

“His approval rating has ranged from a high of 59 per cent in late January shortly after he took office, to a low of 42 per cent in early April,” said the polling company.
However, a quick fact check has revealed that Trump’s approval ratings are lower than Obama’s were at the same time in his first term.
In fact, on January 20, 2009, Obama’s approval rating was an impressive 67 percent and slipped to 55 percent at the same stage in his presidency.
As per Rasmussen, Obama’s lowest approval rating occurred in June 2010 when his rating fell to 42 percent. When Obama left office in January 2017, his rating was 62 percent.
While Trump may truly believe he is better than Obama, the numbers don’t lie.
