Gallup: Trump Approval In Positive Territory, 49-47

His approval rating on Covid has fallen ten points, though.

50% approve, 48% disapprove of Trump's handling COVID-19 situation

COVID-19 situation approval down from 60% last month

Overall job approval rating now at 49%

This is good:

Most of the variation in Trump's recent job approval rating is among independents. In the current poll, 47% of independents approve of the job he is doing as president, the highest Gallup has measured for the group to date. Ninety-three percent of Republicans and 8% of Democrats approve of the job Trump is doing.

As is this:

Generally speaking, Trump's recent job approval ratings have been higher than at any point in his presidency, largely because of modest rallies in support for him tied to his acquittal in the Senate impeachment trial and the coronavirus crisis.

During his 13th quarter in office, stretching from Jan. 20 through April 19, he averaged 47% job approval. That is four percentage points better than his previous high quarters -- 43% during his 10th (April 20-July 19, 2019) and 12th (Oct. 20, 2019-Jan 19, 2020) quarters in office.

A Hill-HarrisX poll finds that Trump and Biden are tied nationally, statistically, with Biden holding an inside-the-margin-of-error 2% lead, 42%-40%.

A TIPP poll finds Biden and Trump are both tied at 43%.

Trump and Biden are tied in the poll, with both candidates garnering support from 43 percent of respondents.

The recent poll follows former the vice president leading 47 percent to 41 percent in a poll the group released in early April, marking a drop in his level of support.

Say it's not so, Sundown Joe.

Note that Hillary Clinton supposedly had an 8-12 point lead on Trump at this point in 2016.
