Trump Gets Best Approval Rating In 7 Months”

President Donald Trump's approval rating hit 40 percent, his best score in seven months, according to the most recent Quinnipiac University poll.

A new Reuters/Ipsos poll released in the wake of the Nunes memo shows that nearly three in four Republican voters believe the president is a victim of a plan to undermine him; with voters' attitudes on the investigation into alleged collusion between Trump's team and Russian Federation during the 2016 election unsurprisingly split down party lines.

The last Quinnipiac survey on the matter, released January 10, found that 49 percent of voters credited Obama with the country's current economy, compared to 40 percent who said Trump was responsible.

A total of 75 percent of American voters say their financial situation is "excellent" or "good". This is a reversal from Obama's 49-40% advantage last month and a stark contrast to Obama's 67-19% spread last March. Voters approve 51 percent to 43 percent of the way Trump is handling the economy, the highest figures on the issue since the president's inauguration. Since Trump took office, the lowest Congress' approval rating has dipped was 10 percent this August.

In the Quinnipiac survey, 39 percent of respondents approved of the tax plan, which slashed business tax rates from 35 percent to 21 percent and offered a series of more modest individual tax cuts.

And Americans are now evenly split 28% to 27% on whether the bill will increase or decrease their own taxes - a number that changed dramatically from the 44% increase, 16% decrease split in the days before the bill passed.

The Quinnipiac poll is based on interviews with 1,333 registered voters nationwide, and was conducted from February 2-5.

Indeed, 73 percent of Republicans polled between February 3-5 believe "members of the FBI and Department of Justice are working to delegitimize Trump through politically motivated investigations", Reuters reported respondents saying.
