While the president is hardly popular nationwide, this marks a fairly significant jump from a December Monmouth poll that put Trump's approval rating at a low of 32 percent, with a disaproval rating of 56 percent.
Trump's approval rate after his first 12 months in office is now languishing at 38 percent: the lowest ranking USA president since Gallup first began its popularity polls with Harry Truman in 1945.
Americans also appeared to soften their stance toward the GOP tax law, with the same proportion - 44 percent - registering approval as those who disapproved.
Trump's overall approval rating averaged 38 percent in 2017, according to Gallup, but his reception varied highly among states. Fifty-five percent of voters said the president was at least somewhat successful at carrying out his legislative agenda in Congress, a 13 percent improvement from December before Republican leaders passed their sweeping tax package. The latter finding mirrors a WBUR poll earlier this month that put Trump's job approval at 29% in the Bay State.
Two-thirds of poll respondents in Vermont - or 69 percent - disapproved of Trump's job performance.
