POLL: Support For Trump, GOP Soars

This is pre-SOTU, by the way. It’s possible that he’s still on his way up, although SOTU bounces are infamously fleeting.


These aren’t the best numbers of his presidency but the *trend*, both for him and for the GOP, may be the most encouraging since he took office.

Pres. Trump’s job rating now stands at 42% approve and 50% disapprove. While his net rating continues to dwell in negative territory, this is an improvement from his December low of 32% approve and 56% disapprove. The current results mark a return to the ratings he received in the late summer and early fall of 2017. Positive signs for Trump include an uptick in public opinion that he has been successful in moving his agenda through Congress and increasing support for the recently enacted tax reform plan…

Opinion is currently divided on the landmark tax reform plan – 44% approve and 44% disapprove. But this marks a significant increase in public support from December, when just 26% approved of the bill and 47% disapproved. Perhaps more importantly, fewer Americans (36%) believe that their own federal taxes will go up under the plan than felt the same when the bill was in its final legislative stages last month (50%).

The news is even better than that excerpt suggests. The 42/50 split is among all adults; among registered voters, he’s at 44/48. To put that in perspective, from June 2017 all the way through December, Trump hit 44 percent in a poll tracked by RCP exactly … once. One time. Now he’s at 44 percent in Monmouth — but not just Monmouth. Check this out.
