The poll found 55% of registered voters rate President Trump’s economy as “excellent” or “good,” which is the highest percentage in the poll since 59% felt the same in Y 2001, Fox News reported.
The contrast to The Obama Administration is alarming, too. Just 3% rated the economy as “excellent” in former President Barack Hussein Obama’s final month (December 2016), while The Trump Administration hit a new high on that marker at 20%, which is up from 14% last October, according to the report.
And, Fox News’ poll revealed, the credit overwhelmingly goes to Trump and Republicans (42%) compared to Mr. Hussein Obama and Democrats (just 9%).
There remains a high level of partisanship as 85% of Republicans have a positive view of the economy, and the country’s direction 75%, while 82% of Democrats have a negative view of the country’s direction and 68% rate the economy fair or poor.
That leads to a overall approval rating for President Trump at 45%, with 54% disapproving, according to the poll.
Democratic pollster Beacon Research and Republican pollster Shaw & Company combined to interview 1,005 registered voters nationwide and the poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
