President Trump’s Approval Rating Twice as High as Congress

The media has been touting House Speaker Pelosi’s genius and popularity lately. The American people though like Congress about as much as ever.

Meanwhile Trump’s numbers are way up.

President Donald Trump’s job approval rating has risen to 44% after the conclusion of the longest government shutdown in U.S. history. While views of Trump have improved, the public’s heightened positivity does not extend to views of Congress, as its 21% approval rating is essentially unchanged from January.

Much of this has to do with a booming economy.

Meanwhile the public doesn’t like Pelosi’s Congress any more than it liked Ryan’s Congress. But Congress usually has low ratings.

Trump’s overall approval rating, which had slumped to 37% amid the shutdown, hasn’t been this high since October, after his nominee Brett Kavanaugh was sworn in as a Supreme Court justice. His current approval is just one percentage point shy of his personal best, achieved twice in his presidency — in the first week of his term and in June 2018, after his meeting with North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un.
