The September job approval poll numbers for President Donald Trump looked better than they have since soon after he took office, NBC News reported Sunday.

The NBC/Wall Street Journal poll was conducted prior to this weekend's flap between the president and the NFL over players who kneel during the national anthem. The polls showed Trump with an overall rise in his job approval rating to 43 percent, compared to 40 percent in August. Trump garnered a 44 percent approval rating in February.

Other surveys showed a similar uptick for the president, with Gallup showing Trump up three points to 38 percent. The Real Clear Politics polling average, which takes many polls into account, gave him 41.3 percent, his highest since mid-May.

Though lower than former Presidents Barack Obama or Bill Clinton at the same time in their presidencies, the polling did show a dramatic increase in support for Trump among Independent voters, with a nine-point spike since August to 41 percent.

NBC News explained the polls suggest Trump's more moderate tone and his efforts to work with Democrats in a bipartisan manner on issues in recent weeks may have contributed to his bump in the polls. The data showed 71 percent of those surveyed approved of his efforts to work with Democrats on hurricane relief and to avoid a government shutdown.

One demographic group stood out among the rise in support — men, and especially men without a college degree. His numbers among men surged to 49 percent, a rise of seven points. Among men without a college degree, his job approval was 55 percent, up 11 points over August.

Among women, Trump's numbers dropped one point to 37 percent in September.
