Trump Approval Jumps to 46%

The president weathered a number of political storms over the past few weeks to enjoy a surging approval rating.

President Trump’s approval rating, according to a new NBC/WSJ poll, jumped to 46 percent early last week. It fell to 44 percent following the convictions of two of his former aides, a statistically insignificant difference.

The poll asked Americans both before and after the controversies of the past week, and it found that the scandals barely affected the new all-time high.

From August 18-22, 46 percent approved while 51 percent disapproved of his performance, and from August 25, 44 percent approved and 52 percent disapproved.

Chuck Todd called the convictions of Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen a “fool’s gold opportunity” rather than a chance to take down Republicans.
