Americans seem to be pretty much settled in their opinions about President Donald Trump, according to the most recent polls Monday. Most surveys have his approval rating hovering around 40 percent.
Gallup pegged Trump's approval rating at 42 percent in its latest survey released Monday, unchanged from where it stood this time last week but up 2 percentage points from where it was over the weekend. Gallup said 53 percent of respondents disapproved of Trump. The tracking poll surveyed 1,500 people through telephone interviews, with a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points. It calculates approval for each day, with a three-day rolling average.
The most recent survey from Investor's Business Daily/TechnoMetrica Market Intelligence (IBD/TIPP), meanwhile, put Trump's approval at just 39 percent. But the survey released Monday actually marked a significant uptick from the prior IBD/TIPP poll last month, which had support for Trump at just 34 percent. The company cited the president's decisions regarding North Korea and the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch as potential reasons for his approval rating rise.
