President Donald Trump has often been called “Teflon Don” for his ability to be unfazed by chaotic attacks from all sides — and today is a prime example of why.
On Wednesday morning, the day of President Trump’s likely impeachment in the House of Representatives, a poll was released by Gallup showing that the president’s approval rating had jumped a whopping six-point, according to the Washington Examiner.
Gallup’s polls show that Trump now sits with a comfortable 45 percent approval rating, leaps and bounds better than his 39 percent after the House announced the impeachment inquiry.
“Trump’s approval among independent voters grew eight points throughout impeachment from 34% to 42%. The poll, which was conducted from Dec. 2 to Dec. 15, revealed the president has maintained solid support within the Republican Party and has approval from 89% of GOP respondents,” the Washington Examiner reported. “However, only 8% of Democratic respondents approved of Trump’s performance in the White House.”
Additionally, the impeachment put on by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has dwindled in popularity amongst Americans. When the process started, impeachment was approved by 52 percent. It’s now approved by 46 percent, dropping six points.
Trump’s average approval rating — combined from numerous survey organizations — sits at 43.5%. which is now the highest rating since March 16, 2017.
