President Donald Trump continues his approval rating rebound after a lengthy bloodbath that has been the impeachment process.
In fact, he’s rebounded so well, that he’s now sitting at a record-high 45.3 percent average approval rating, according to RealClearPolitics.
Additionally, it’s worth noting that his disapproval rating has dropped significantly, going from 58 percent in the middle of December to 52 percent at the beginning of January.
Trump’s latest approval boost was partially thanks to his swift and decisive action to secure the U.S. embassy in Baghdad, along with killing top Iranian military leaders, like Gen. Qassem Soleimani — an individual who has orchestrated the killings of hundreds of Americans over his career.
It’s worth noting that these are very good polling numbers given the situations Trump has found himself in. Former President Barack Obama was just one point ahead of Trump during the same point in his tenure — and he didn’t have an partisan impeachment hanging over his head, nor the constant media pressure and antagonism.
Here’s a screenshot of Trump’s job approval numbers over the last three years.
On Saturday, Trump touted his approval ratings within the Republican party on Twitter, which are currently at 95 percent.
95% Approval Rating in the Republican Party. Thank you!
