People in 17 states gave President Donald Trump approval ratings of 50 percent or higher for 2018, with people in 16 other states rating him at below 40 percent, according to a new Gallup Poll released Friday.

Trump gained the most approval in states in the South and Mountain West and the least approval in New England and on the West Coast. His highest rankings came in West Virginia, at 62 percent, and Wyoming, 61 percent, marking the only two states with rankings above 60 percent.

  • Alaska, 56 percent
  • Mississippi, 56 percent
  • Alabama, 55 percent
