From a broader perspective, nearly half of Americans (49%) think the country is going in the wrong direction, this number is driven by two-thirds (66%) of Democrats and 48% of independents viewing the country as going off a cliff – with Republicans being more optimistic.
While President Trump’s approval rating remains a statistical tie, for the first time in several weeks, his actual approval score exceeds his disapproval rating. 48% approve of President Trump, with 46% disapproving. However, when drilling down to the specifics, Trump is doing well on some key issues: over half approve of his handling of jobs and the employment (57%), 56% approve of his actions on the economy. Where Trump is weakest on the issues are the environment with only 42% approval, and the way he ‘treats people like me’ coming in at 44% approval.
