Trump’s Approval Rating at Record High, Jumps 5 Points from Last Month

President Donald Trump’s approval rating is at 47 percent, according to a new poll released by NBC News/The Wall Street Journal. That’s the highest rating rating Trump has ever received as president, according to this poll.

The poll was conducted last week when the 2018 midterms were just three weeks away and early voting was already underway in several states. With more voters viewing the president positively than ever before, that could translate into Republican success at the polls next month, or at least mitigate any potential drag on GOP candidates.

Thirty-three percent of registered voters in the poll say their vote for Congress in 2018 will be a signal of opposition to the president; 29 percent say their vote will be a signal of support; and 36 percent say it won’t be a signal either way.

Notably, Trump’s approval rating jumped five points from the last NBC/WSJ poll conducted a month ago.

Trump does particularly well among men (56 percent approve, 40 percent disapprove) and white voters (54-42). Women disapprove of Trump particularly strongly in this poll (38-58), as do younger voters (35-59).

The 2018 midterm elections are just 15 days away.
