GALLUP: Trump’s Approval Matches His Highest Ever

On Monday, Gallup released its latest weekly poll measuring the job approval rating of President Trump, and despite the furor from the Left over the Trump Administration’s immigration policies, Trump’s approval rating tied the highest level of his presidency. Trump’s approval rating rested at 45%, with 50% disapproving.

The only other time Trump’s approval rating reached 45% with Gallup was on January 29, 2017, almost immediately after his inauguration.

Between June 10 and June 17, Trump’s approval rating rose three percentage points, likely because of his meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

The poll surveys 1,500 adults by telephone.

In the three other major polls that measured Trump’s job approval ending on July 17, CNN found Trump with a 41% approval rating; CBS reported a 42% job approval rating, and Rasmussen reported him with a 48% job approval rating.
