Trump popularity at highest ever, despite impeachment

Dec 17, 2019 12:56 IST

Strong economic figures have helped US President Donald Trump to his highest approval ratings ever, despite impeachment, a new poll has found. Although the Quinnipiac University survey said Trump has a high of 43% for his job approval, that is still far below nearly all previous presidents in modern times at the same point in their administration. According to the poll, carried out December 11-15, 52% of Americans still disapprove of Trump's job performance. Trump has been mired in those unusually low ratings for nearly his entire presidency. But the latest figures show a progression, indicating support growing for Trump, despite the impeachment process threatening his presidency.
