Why is Trump's approval rating 5 pts higher than Obama's, at the same point in their presidencies (now)?

If you were to pay attention to msm, you would think that there is a groundswell of disapproval. You might think that Trump is on his last legs, and is about to be ousted.

But the numbers, the closest thing we have to a "fact" for this, show a different story. What gives?

    Obama's ratings fluctuated just like all presidents. His ratings were much higher than Trumps for most of his presidency. And higher than Trump even after Trump elected. Use your brain.

    At the same point in Obama's presidency (August 3, 2010) Obama's approval rating was 49.7%
