President Trump Sees a Boost in Poll Numbers After Bipartisan Deal

Posted September 22, 2017

When asked "In general, do you approve or disapprove of the job Donald Trump is doing as President", a total of 43 percent of United States voters said they approved, which is up three points from the same poll in August.

President Donald Trump's September approval rating is four points higher than August, according to a recent poll.

Instead, HuffPost's average shows that Trump's rating among Republicans improved from a net +62 at the beginning of August to a net +67 now, a figure that rose among independents from a net -22 to a net -16 in the same period.

Twelve percent of Democrats approve of the job Trump is doing as president, while 84 percent disapprove.

When it comes to reaching across the aisle, a whopping 71 percent of voters approve of the president working with Sen.

"Trump's post-Charlottesville plunge proved to be short-lived, and his approval has stabilized", Morning Consult co-founder Kyle Dropp said about the findings. "A key driver of this movement appears to be independents". A Politico/Morning Consult poll puts Trump's approval rating at 43 percent, up from 39 percent last month.

The president is earning praise for his responses to hurricanes Harvey and Irma, Politico pointed out.

Americans overwhelmingly agree that one thing President Donald Trump has done is good - his recent deal with Democratic leadership. When respondents who identified as "conservative" were asked, just 5% said Trump was too willing to work with Democrats.

Forty-three percent say the Republican Party is too conservative, 25 percent say it is "about right" and 14 percent say it is too liberal.

The NBC/WSJ poll - which was conducted September 14-18 - asked respondents to approve or disapprove of Trump's handling of these 11 events and actions.

According to the poll, more than six in ten Americans support allowing Dreamers to stay, compared to just 33 percent who want to see them deported to their native countries.
