The survey, which was released on Sunday, found that 47 percent of registered voters approve of the job Trump is doing in the White House, a figure that represents a 5-point increase from April. A majority of registered voters — 54 percent — still disapproves of Trump’s performance as president, however.
Meanwhile, 44 percent of voting-age Americans said they approved of Trump’s job performance, while 53 percent said they disapproved it. Just 39 percent of voting-age Americans said they approved of Trump’s job performance in April.
The survey’s release comes as the 2020 Democratic primary race begins to heat up, as candidates such as Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) gain ground on former Vice President Joe Biden in the polls.
