Poll: Trump job approval rating up 3 points since January

The new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll shows President Trump’s job approval rating sits at 46 percent. That’s up 3 points since January. The Hill reports:

A wide majority of Republican respondents — 88 percent — are among those who approve of the job the president is doing, the poll found. Additionally, 60 percent of both rural Americans and white Americans without college degrees polled also approve of his performance in office.

Meanwhile, 88 percent of black Americans, 64 percent of Latinos and 61 percent of women disapprove of Trump’s performance, the poll found.

The poll of 900 U.S. adults also gives us a snapshot in time of the coming 2020 election.

The poll also found that 41 percent of respondents said they will “probably” or “definitely” vote for Trump in 2020, compared to 48 percent who said they will “probably” or “definitely” vote for the Democratic candidate.
