Trump approval hovering around 40%, polls show

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.

However, 53 percent of all white respondents to this poll approve of how Trump is doing as president, up seven points from January's poll. Those who strongly disapprove of Trump outnumber those who strongly approve by almost 2 to 1.

This survey puts the president's approval rating at its highest point in that particular survey since Trump's first 100 days in office-although a greater number still disapprove of the president at 56 percent.

The NBC/WSJ poll also follows a recent survey from NBC News/Survey Monkey that showed the president's approval rating had dipped in previous Trump stronghold the South, however, another poll released on Sunday by ABC News/Washington Post had the president's approval rating at 40 percent. When looking at approval ratings of Trump's handling of the economy, Americans are almost evenly spit, with 46% approval and 48% disapproval.

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 poll was conducted April 8-11 and recorded the responses of 1,002 adults.

The poll surveyed 500 people and the margin of error is 2.5 percentage points.

Support for the Democratic Party lost 0.7 percentage points to 50.4 percent, but it kept its top post by wide margin.
