A new Harvard CAPS/Harris poll released exclusively to The Hill revealed something astonishing, not that President Trump’s approval continued to climb, resting at 47%, but that his approval rating among Hispanics soared a staggering 10 points in the last month.
Trump’s approval rating also climbed six points among Republicans and even four points among Democrats from where it stood last month.
That could be derived from this: The poll found 59% of Americans approved of how the government was handling its relationship with North Korea, and roughly 75% of those polled approved of Trump meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.
Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll co-director Mark Penn commented, “[I’m] surprised that given the misstep on immigration that the president’s approval is holding steady or even increasing on the strength of the economy and the success of North Korea. He is holding his base and doing particularly well with men.”
The majority of respondents approved of Trump’s efforts to stimulate jobs, handle the economy and fight terrorism.
As The Hill noted of Trump, “He has a higher approval rating among Republican voters at this stage of his presidency than any GOP president in the modern era except for President George W. Bush, according to Gallup data.”
