President Donald Trump's approval rating has risen to 40 percent, as respondents to a new CNN poll released Thursday gave his administration high marks for its response to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

Sixty-four percent of the 1,053 adult respondents said they approved of how the White House responded to hurricanes that devastated portions of Texas, Florida and the Caribbean.

The CNN poll was among several that gave President Trump high marks for his hurricane relief efforts, including a deal with Democrats earlier this month to raise the debt ceiling and to provide $15.25 billion in aid to Harvey victims.

The NBC News/The Wall Street Journal poll put Trump's approval rating at 3 points higher, to 43 percent, as respondent praised the bipartisan deal, and a new Zogby Analytics poll put Trump's support higher, also at 43 percent.
