Trump Smashes Job Approval Record, Despite Impeachment
President Donald Trump’s public standing at best yet
President Donald Trump’s public standing is his best yet despite the Democrats' efforts to smear him with impeachment.
According to Gallup and various other polls, the president smashed his job approval ratings.
Gallup headlined Tuesday:
“Trump Job Approval at Personal Best 49%.”
Moreover, half of the registered voters told the survey firm that they want Trump reelected.
The findings are unusual because of the survey firm puts Trump’s rating below other surveys.
Additionally, Gallup validates multiple polls showing Trump’s approval ratings growing in the wake of impeachment.
RealClearPolitics reported “Trump Job Approval” ” is at 45.6%, just 0.4% off the high posted shortly after his inauguration.
Trump's disapproval number is 51.7%, which is lower than his recent average.
Gallup delivered three points:
- Approval among Republicans hits 94%.
- Half of the registered voters say Trump deserves to be re-elected.
- 63% approving of his handling of the economy, which Gallup said, “is the highest economic approval rating not only for Trump, but for any president since George W. Bush enjoyed stratospheric job approval ratings in the first few months after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.”
“The 87-point gap between Republican and Democratic approval in the current poll is the largest Gallup has measured in any Gallup poll to date, surpassing the prior record, held by Trump and Barack Obama, by one point,” said the analysis.

Gallup added that the booming economy, his move against Iran, and China's trade deal, also helped boost his numbers.
Trump has also improved the image of the Republican Party.
It now has a 51% approval rating, an 8% increase from 43% in September.
The Gallup report also suggested that Trump has a good chance of reflection:
“If Trump's higher approval rating is being driven by Americans giving him credit for improvements in the economy, his support may increase over the course of the year, as it did for Ronald Reagan in 1984, Clinton in 1996 and Barack Obama in 2012.
"All of those recent presidents held office during periods of sustained economic improvement and were re-elected with job approval ratings of better than 50%,” said Gallup.
There also seems to be a pattern.
Neon Nettle reported Trump's job approval rating rose sharply following the conclusion of special counsel Robert Mueller's report last year, and also around the time of the Judge Kavanaugh hearings in 2018.
