President Trump's approval rating sees uptick in September

22 September 2017

Americans' approval of the debt ceiling deal was significantly higher than it was for Trump's handling of any other issue polled.

The September 2017 poll from Franklin & Marshall College published this week shows that 29 percent of Pennsylvania voters believe that Trump is doing a good job in office, a drop of 8 percentage points from F&M's May poll. Polls found that a majority of Americans approved of his handling of the hurricane response following Harvey and Irma, even if that didn't translate to support for the president more broadly.

Single-payer health care is surging with a majority of American voters - and Democrats are loving it the most, a new poll showed Wednesday.

That being said, Democrats have hardly changed their minds about Trump's record overall: On average, barely over 10 percent approve of his performance.

Trump's marginally rising popularity may be welcome news for the White House, but he still has a long way to go when it comes to bumping up his ratings.

"The rhetoric on illegal immigration may remain red-hot, but many Americans, especially Republicans, have shifted to a more moderate position since last year's presidential campaign", Monmouth poll director Patrick Murray said in a statement. Five per cent of respondents had no opinion on the matter.

Eighty-one percent of Republicans approve of the way Trump has handled the presidency, compared to 17 percent who do not.

However, it also reported that 65 per cent of Americans think the U.S.is on the "wrong track".

The NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll was conducted September 14-18. The Politico write up of the Politico/Morning Consult poll attributes the boost to his bipartisan deals with Democratic congressional leadership. It as a margin of error plus or minus two percentage points. Conservative support fell from 76 to 55 percent in the same time period, according to the poll.
