Trump's approval hits highest level in a year

Trump touts support in Rasmussen poll: 'Hard to believe' with all the 'phony stories and fake news'

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. His personal popularity was much less correlated with his job approval than Trump's is today. "Thank you America, we are doing Great Things", Trump tweeted Sunday.

A weekly Rasmussen poll released Friday put the commander-in-chief just one point above the 49% of voters who aboved of Obama at the same point in 2010.

President Donald Trump's job approval rating slipped to 39 percent, a drop of 4 points, in the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll Sunday.

The NBC/WSJ poll interviewed 900 adults April 8-11 with a margin of error of 3.3 percentage points. Adults ages 18 to 34 were the only subgroup to see an increase over the last month, rising five points to 36%.

The NBC/WSJ poll also had good news for Democrats in the midterm elections, with 47% of respondents preferring a Democrat-controlled Congress and only 40% preferring a Republican majority. Forty percent of voters said they would be sending a message with their November votes that more Democrats are needed to "check and balance" out Trump and congressional Republicans, as compared with 28% who believed more Republicans were needed to carry out Trump and the GOP's agenda.

Indeed, the president's frustration with the probe, which is also looking into whether there was possible collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign team, has prompted fears over whether Trump will attempt to remove Special Counsel Robert Mueller from his role; with the White House commenting last week Trump believes he has the authority to do so.

Another 25% believe the criminal charges and guilty pleas by others don't extended to the President, while 36% haven't reached a decision.
