US President Donald Trump’s approval rating is at 46% approval — the highest mark he has reached in more than two years as President.
Trump’s upward trajectory is natural, given the positive economic numbers his administration has produced — led by 3.2% GDP growth in the first quarter of 2019.
A closer look at the data shows a very interesting fact. Trump’s gains in the poll are not from Republicans, as might be expected, as 9 in 10 Republican voters backed Trump in March, the same number who did so in April. It’s among Democrats where Trump’s job approval has improved the most month-to-month; just 4% approved of the job he was doing in March compared to 10% who said the same in April. Independents went from 33% job approval for Trump in March to 39% in April.
