US President Donald Trump's approval ratings are better than those of George W. Bush and Barrack Obama at the same point in their first term, according to new data from polling company Gallup.  BetOnline continued to list Trump at -140 to win re-election with Former Vice President Joe Biden at +125.  All of this is well within the margin of error.

Despite the dire state of the economy Trump’s latest approval rating is still at a robust 49% for the period May 1 -13, according to Gallup. 

At the same time in their presidencies George W Bush and Barrack Obama both had approval ratings of 47%, which is slightly lower than Trump’s. Yet both those presidents went on to win a second term in office. 

The two recent presidents that lost their second term had far lower approval ratings. George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter, had approval ratings of 41% and 40% respectively at the same point in their term.

Fox’s latest poll finds Trump trailing presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden by a robust 8 points nationwide. It’s enough to put Biden ahead even considering the 3-point margin of error, and a significant swing from last month, when Fox’s polling had the race tied. 

While he didn’t directly address the new Fox poll on Thursday evening, Trump indirectly hit back at it by tweeting outdated polls and out-of-context data points in an effort to portray himself as more popular than he really is.
