Trump’s Approval Rating on Economy and North Korea Hits All-Time High

The approval rating of President Donald Trump’s policies on the economy has reached a new peak.

According to a Gallup poll that was published Tuesday, 56 percent of adults in the U.S. approve of Trump’s handling of the economy, the best mark of Trump’s presidency and the highest approval rating for Trump on any of the 14 issues tested in the poll.

Additionally, the poll found that most of the voters approve of Trump’s policies on unemployment and on his take on North Korea, with 54 percent approving of Trump’s job with unemployment and 51 percent approving on North Korea.

However, the President’s approval rating still sits at just 43 percent.

Another 54 percent of adults, meanwhile, disapprove of Trump’s performance as president.

Trump gets some of his lowest marks on his handling of relations with Russia, race relations and corruption in government, according to the poll. The poll found that 39 percent, 38 percent and 37 percent approve of Trump’s handling of those three issues, respectively.

Americans are split along partisan lines in their views of Trump, the poll found, with 93 percent of Republicans approving of Trump’s handling of the economy, compared to just 20 percent of Democrats. Additionally, just 6 percent of Democrats approve of Trump’s overall job performance, while 90 percent of Republicans approve, according to the poll.

The poll’s results are based on interviews with 1,932 adults from Feb. 12 to Feb. 28. The poll has a margin of error of 3 percentage points.
