EDG­ING UP AND UP

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

Pres­i­dent Trump ap­pears to have a knack for the long march, per­se­ver­ing de­spite end­less, mul­ti­ple chal­lenges from po­lit­i­cal foes and a hos­tile me­dia. That could be pay­ing off.

“Pres­i­dent Trump’s job ap­proval rat­ing in­creased rel­a­tively sharply over the past month to 45% in an April 1-9 Gallup poll, up from 39% in March. This marks the third time the 45th pres­i­dent has reached a 45% job ap­proval rat­ing in Gallup trends — his high­est in the se­ries,” writes Gallup an­a­lyst Justin McCarthy. “The pres­i­dent’s im­proved rat­ing is the re­sult of small in­creases among in­de­pen­dents and Democrats, whose rat­ings of the pres­i­dent have in­creased by six and four per­cent­age points re­spec­tively. Repub­li­cans’ ap­proval of the pres­i­dent re­mains un­changed, with about 9 in 10 Repub­li­cans ap­prov­ing of Trump’s job per­for­mance.”
