Fox News Poll: Trump's Approval Rating Rises 2 Percent

Fox News Poll: Trump's Approval Rating Rises 2 Percent

President Donald Trump's approval rating ticked up last week from a month ago, a new poll showed Sunday.

In the Fox News survey, Trump's approval rating climbed 2 percentage points to 45 percent, while his disapproval rating came in at 52 percent during the March 18-21 period.

That compares with a 43-53 approval approval Feb. 18 — and falls short of his Feb. 17, 2017 high of 48-47 percent. Trump notched his lowest Fox News survey approval Oct. 17, 2017, at 38-57 percent.

In a Real Clear Politics average of polls, including the most recent Fox News survey, the president's approval is at 42.1 percent, while his disapproval stands at 53.3 percent.

The Fox News poll uptick comes in the wake of recent White House staff changes, including the exit of National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and the nominations of CIA Director Mike Pompeo as top diplomat and John Bolton to fill McMaster's job.

Meanwhile, the poll also showed 53 percent say "protecting citizens from gun violence" is more important than "protecting the rights of citizens to own guns."

The breakdown for support on individual gun control measures is:

  • 91 percent support universal background checks.
  • 84 percent support mandatory mental health checks.
  • 72 percent support raising the minimum legal age to 21.
  • 69 percent support putting armed guards in schools.
  • 60 percent support a ban on assault and semi-automatic weapons.
  • 37 percent support the proposal to have teachers and school officials armed.

The gun control results come just a day after March for Our Lives protests around the country.
