Gallup: Trump Overall Approval 42%, On COVID 36%

Just in from Gallup Polling:

President Donald Trump’s job approval rating is 42% in the latest Gallup poll. This marks a slight improvement from two readings below 40% in June — after nationwide protests on racial injustice — but remains below his ratings prior to June, including several personal best readings of 49%.

The latest figures are from a July 30-Aug. 12 survey of 1,031 U.S. adults. Trump continues to get high marks from his fellow Republicans, among whom 90% approve, and low marks from Democrats (5% approve). Thirty-nine percent of independents approve, up from 33% in late June and 34% in July.
