More Americans approve of President Trump’s job performance, as well as the direction the country is heading according to a new Morning Consult/POLITICO survey.
The poll, conducted between March 9-13, found that 52% of the public approve of the President’s performance, with 43% disapproving. This is in increase from the 49% approval rating President Trump had immediately following his inauguration.
Apart from increasing his personal approval numbers, more Americans believe the country is heading in the right direction. 46% of the those asked believe America is on the right track; a four-point bounce from last January.
Most pollsters attribute the President’s strong numbers to encouraging reports on both consumer confidence and job growth, with US optimism at the highest levels seen since August 2001.
The National poll surveyed 1,983 registered voters.
