Trump approval rating at 50 percent, president responds

16 April 2018

President Trump's gains in adults aged 18-34 were trumped by losses among Republicans, Independents, Democrats, whites, men, and women, according to NBC News.

President Moon Jae-in's approval rating declined last week for the second consecutive week, amid an escalating controversy surrounding the chief of a financial watchdog, a poll showed Monday.

Both polls released Sunday morning show that Trump's approval rating is still below 40 percent.

According to ABC News/Washington Post polls, this is Trump's highest approval rating in a year and comes as consumer confidence reached its highest since February 2001, according to the weekly Bloomberg Consumer Confort Index. As far as how Trump is handling the nation's economy, respondents were pretty split: 46 percent of respondents approve of how he is handling the economy and 48 percent do not.

Thirty-four percent said they "strongly approve" of Trump's performance; 40 percent "strongly disapprove".

Susquehanna maintained Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited (NYSE:TSM) on Thursday, January 18 with "Hold" rating. It dropped, as 75 investors sold CMCSA shares while 544 reduced holdings. 141 funds opened positions while 552 raised stakes.

Most other major polls now have the president's approval rating hovering around the low 40s.

Another key takeaway from the poll is the advantage Democrats hold in enthusiasm, with 66% of Democrats polled expressing a high level of interest in the November midterm elections, as opposed to 49% of Republicans.

The result was based on the poll of 2,501 voters conducted from Monday to Friday.

The Rasmussen poll was conducted among 500 likely voters with a margin of error of 2.5 percent.

The main opposition Liberty Korea Party scored 21.9 percent, up 1.1 percentage points, while the ratings for the Bareunmirae Party, Justice Party and Party for Democracy and Peace were tallied at 5.7 percent, 4.2 percent and 3.3 percent, respectively.
