President Donald Trump claimed Friday morning that he has a near-unanimous approval rating among Republicans.
"94% Approval Rating within the Republican Party. Thank you!" Trump tweeted.
It's unclear, however, which poll Trump was referencing. A look at several recent polls, whose results were posted to RealClear Politics, showed that Trump has an approval among conservatives in the 80% range.
A Monmouth University poll conducted from Aug. 16-20, for example, found that 84% of Republicans approve of Trump's job performance. A Reuters/Ipsos survey taken from Aug. 19-20 showed that Trump has an 87% approval rating among Republicans — 50% who strongly approve, 34% who somewhat approve, and 3% who lean toward approve.
Another recent poll conducted by Economist/YouGov this month concluded that Trump's approval rating among Republicans is 85% — 58% strongly approve and 27% somewhat approve.
Friday is not the first time Trump has claimed a 94% approval rating among the GOP. Last month he tweeted, "94% Approval Rating in the Republican Party, an all time high. Ronald Reagan was 87%. Thank you!"
And in June, according to The Washington Post, Trump said he had an approval rating among Republicans between 90% and 94%.
"That's an all-time record. Can you believe that? Isn't that something? I love records," he said at the time.
A short time after Trump's 94% tweet Friday, he posted another message on the social media platform that referenced a 51% approval rating he garnered via a Zogby poll. According to the results of that survey, 27% strongly approve of Trump's job performance and 24% somewhat approve. Trump also has an 86% approval among Republicans, the poll found.
