A new Gallup poll shows Donald Trump’s presidential job-approval rating hitting a new high of 46 percent.
Not that Gallup polls are very reliable and true but we will take this one. A new poll that ran from April 17 to April 30, shows President Trump’s approval rating has ticked up a new high of 46 percent. We believe that it’s actually higher than that but time will tell.
“The latest rating extends the upper limits of President Donald Trump’s narrow approval rating range by one percentage point, from his previous range of 35% to 45%,” Gallup notes.
On one hand, polling below 50 percent still isn’t a good place to be for an incumbent, especially given the strong economy, and the president currently trails Joe Biden by 7 points and Bernie Sanders by 3 points in the RealClearPolitics average of polls. On the other hand, Barack Obama’s job-approval rating was 44 percent in Gallup polling at the same point in his presidency (April 2011), and he still managed to find a way to win re-election in 2012.
