Trump's Approval Rating Reaches Record High During Impeachment Trial

1.8k views

President Donald Trump just clocked his highest approval rating on record, even as own impeachment trial was being held in the U.S. Senate.

While the Senate debates whether or not to remove Trump – and as the country watches, pretending like we don’t already know the outcome – the president will deliver his third State of the Union address Tuesday night after garnering a record-high 49 percent approval rating, according to the latest Gallup poll released this morning. The Hill reports that’s three points higher than his previous record of 46 percent, which he’d hit back in May after the release of the Mueller report that found no evidence of his campaign having colluded with Russian during the 2016 election.

While Democrats still largely say they disapprove of Trump’s performance as president, his approval has risen among not only Republicans, but also Independents. The poll found 94 percent of Republicans approve of Trump's performance compared with 88 percent in early January, while 42 percent of Independents said they approve of Trump, up from 37 percent. Only seven percent of Democrats said they approved of the job he’s doing.

According to the Gallup poll, Trump’s current approval rating is slightly higher with former President Barack Obama’s during the same time frame in his first term. In the same poll taken between Jan. 30 and Feb. 5 of 2012, Obama’s approval rating stood at 46 percent, two points lower than Trump’s current rating after the same amount of time in office.
