The media panned President Trump’s rowdy debate performance, but it appears that it helped him and he is “on the rise again,” according to the first post-debate approval survey.

Sliding from 52% approval over the weekend to 46% Wednesday, Trump is back up to 49% Thursday in the daily Trump tracking poll of likely voters from Rasmussen Reports.

According to the poll analysis, “This survey is the first to include a night of polling following the first presidential debate between Trump and Democrat nominee Joe Biden. The president’s approval ran in the low 50s for 10 days through the end of last week but dropped as low as 46% in the first three days of this week following his nomination Saturday of federal Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court. Now his approval appears to be on the rise again. By next Monday morning, all 1,500 voters in the daily tracking survey will have been polled following Tuesday night’s contentious debate.”

Meanwhile, Gallup pushed Trump’s approval rating up on Thursday to 46% from 42%. And, it said, “56% expect Trump will win the election; 40% think Biden will.”
