At this same point in former President Barack Obama's tenure, he held a 48% approval rating in Rasmussen's survey.

Rasmussen Reports' poll comes as U.S. employment reports show that the economy added 134,000 jobs in September, below the 180,000 that were expected, and that the unemployment rate, 3.7%, is at its lowest level since 1969.
