FLASH: Optimism over the economy has boosted President Trump’s approval rating to the highest it has been in 2 years, according to a newly released Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll survey.
Overall, the survey found that 48% of voters approve of the job President Trump is doing, while 52% said they disapprove. President Trump’s approval is up 3% since March, when 45% said they approved.
The last Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll that placed a 48% approval rating with President Trump was in June of Y 2017.
Also outlined in the survey, conducted from 29-30 May, was The Trump Economy; 62% approved of his approach to employment, while 59% approved of his handling of the economy.
Of the 1,295 voters surveyed online, an astonishing 71% said they view The Trump Economy as “Strong” or “Very Strong.”
“People’s views on the economy are gradually pushing Trump’s numbers up and his actions on other issues like China and immigration are neutral to positive,” said the co-director of the Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll survey.
Every point of increase in this range of 45 to 50 improves the possibility of re-election.
“Great News! #MAGA,” President Trump shared in a Tweet with the clip attached Friday evening
