Gallup: Trump Approval Rating Highest Since July

A new poll released by Gallup shows President Donald Trump’s approval rating spiked to a six-month high. His approval rating rose to 39 percent in the final week of December, a jump from his all-time low of 35 percent earlier in the year.

Although the polling data does not speculate about the cause for the rise in Trump’s approval, the passage of the Republicans’ tax reform package could have played a role.

Unsurprisingly, Trump’s approval rating falls strictly along partisan lines:

Republicans’ approval of Trump was 82% last week. Independents registered 34% approval, along with 9% among Democrats.

According to Gallup, Trump’s approval rating was at or above 40 percent for much of the first half of the year, but fell below that threshold in July. The late December spike was Trump’s highest of the second half of the year.
