President Trump’s approval rating surged while the Democratic National Convention (DNC) was taking place.
The Washington Examiner reports:
During this week’s Democratic National Convention, which was supposed to launch Joe Biden and Kamala Harris's ticket into the fall election with good feelings and high poll numbers, President Trump’s approval rating surged.
The Rasmussen Reports daily average for Trump, which is spread over three days, hit 51% this week — and has stayed there.
On the first day of the Democratic National Convention, Trump's approval rating was 47%.

“It’s not uncommon for candidates to receive a bump after a national political convention. It’s just that usually the convention is their own and not their opponents.”
