New Poll Shows Frightening Jump in Trump Approval Rating Since December

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.

In December just 26 per cent of the public approved of the legislation, with 47 per cent disapproving of the package.

Democratic overperformance in special elections, the of promising candidates, and a wave of retirements among congressional Republicans in the last few months has played into a narrative of a growing Democratic wave election come November. "The generic Congressional ballot is prone to bouncing around for a bit until the campaign really gets underway later this year".

What about Republicans? A whopping 72 percent said Trump is a good role model for children, and only 22 percent disagreed.

This Monmouth University poll was conducted January 28-30, 2018, among 806 adults. It has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
