The American president is supported by almost half of the respondents. At the same time, 94% of Republicans trust Trump.
Before the vote to impeach U.S. President Donald Trump, his approval rating had risen to its highest level since taking office. This is evidenced by the results of the Gallup poll, the voice of America reports.
According to the survey, 49% of American voters support Trump. Confidence in Trump among pollsters is 94%. Forty-two percent of voters who call themselves independents support the president’s job. Their number increased by 3% compared to the previous survey.
Among American Democrats, 7% of voters approve of the actions of the head of state. This is down 3% from the previous study.
The poll was conducted during the impeachment process, from January 16 to 29. Researchers interviewed 1,033 people. The statistical error is 4%.
At the same time, the American public is divided in half-half of registered Us voters believe that Trump deserves to be elected to the White House for a second term this November. Gallop researchers note that this is the strongest polarization of society in the United States in the history of their research.
There was reportedly a scandal during Trump’s annual address to Congress. The president did not shake hands with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and she, in turn, tore up the text of his speech.
