President Trump’s approval rating reached new heights in the second half of April, according to the Gallup poll, as nearly half of voters gave him positive marks.
Trump’s approval rating ticked up to 46 percent, up slightly from 45 percent in the first part of April and the highest mark to date for Trump in the Gallup poll.
It comes on the heels of strong economic numbers and a largely favorable outcome of the Russia investigation.
Trump remains overwhelmingly popular among Republicans, 91 percent of whom gave the president positive marks in the latest Gallup poll. That figure falls just short of the record high of 92 percent approval among GOP respondents, reached in a November 2018 Gallup survey.
Among Democrats, 12 percent said they approve of Trump’s job performance, according to the poll. That figure matches the previous high among Democrats recorded in April 2017.
Trump’s approval among independents dipped slightly from 39 percent in the first half of April to 37 percent in the latest poll.
The Gallup poll surveyed 1,024 adults nationwide from April 17-30. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
Trump has largely been buoyed by a strong economy, that saw continued growth in April.
