Poll: Trump's Approval Rating Reaches Highest Level In 2 Years
President Trump’s job approval rating recently reached its highest level in two years.
President Trump's job approval rating recently reached its highest level in two years. According to a CNN poll conducted by SSRS from April 25th through April 28th, 43% of the 1,007 people polled gave him high marks, while 52% did not. CNN notes "that approval figure is the highest -- by one point -- since a CNN poll completed around the 100-day mark of his time in office." The poll also found that 44% of those surveyed believe that Congress is going too far in investigating Trump and only 37% are in support of the pursuit of impeachment.
Those responses were given prior to reports that special counsel Robert Mueller wrote a letter to Attorney General William Barr in late March, "objecting to his early description of the Russia investigation's conclusions that appeared to clear President Trump on possible obstruction of justice, according to the Justice Department and three people with direct knowledge of the communication between the two men," notes the New York Times. The Times adds: "It was unclear what specific objections Mr. Mueller raised in his letter, though a Justice Department spokeswoman said on Tuesday evening that he 'expressed frustration over the lack of context' in Mr. Barr's presentation of his findings on obstruction of justice."
