Good Economy Boosts Trump to Highest Rating in Seven Months

According to Quinnipiac University National Poll, President Trump has hit his highest approval ratings in seven months.

New developments are surfacing in special counsel Robert Mueller's probe almost every day, but new poll numbers are showing Republican voters aren't all that concerned.

Among the looming issues that could impact Trump's approval, Rasmussen said, are the vote on a two-year budget deal and the Democrats' rebuttal memo to the majority House Intelligence Committee memo alleging that permission to spy on the Trump campaign would not have been obtained without the infamous anti-Trump "dossier" funded by the Democratic Party.




The Rasmussen Reports daily survey released Thursday shows that Mr. Trump's approval rating is at 48 percent, statistically tied with his disapproval rating of 50 percent.

In the aggregate, Mr. Trump's poll numbers have undergone a slow-but-steady climb since mid-December. That's up 10 points from a 35% approval rating on this topic just before the GOP's sweeping tax reform legislation passed. That's a net approval rating of negative 21.1 percent. Seven in 10 American voters, 70%, say the United States economy is excellent or good - the best mark on this question since 2001. Perhaps if Trump and his cohorts in the Republican Congress, along with some of the more vocal Republican mouthpieces at Fox and in right-wing radio, were given the opportunity to spend even a fraction of the time spent by McCain in a POW camp, they would come away with a better understanding of what American patriotism really is all about.

Quinnipiac University ran the poll February 2-5, surveying 1,333 voters nationwide. The CBS News poll surveyed 1,225 Americans between January 13 and January 16, and it has a margin of error of plus or minus three percent.
