President Donald Trump's approval rating rose to 46 percent from 44 percent in October, according to a Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll survey released exclusively to The Hill on Monday.

"Trump's numbers show an uptick as voters continue to give him credit on the economy and battling terrorism successfully," Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll co-director Mark Penn said. "His job approval and the basic numbers have been stable over the last few months."

Other results from the survey show:

  • 52 percent of registered voters believe the country is on the wrong track, while 40 percent believe it is headed in the right direction, and 8 percent are undecided.
  • 70 percent say the economy is strong today, but only 47 percent say it is on the right track, a slight decrease from the past two months.
  • The Republican Party's approval has slightly increased to 43 percent, but 57 percent still disapprove.
  • The Democratic Party's approval ratings have gone up since the November midterms to 46 percent, with 54 percent disapproving.
  • 67 percent of voters are satisfied with the outcome of the midterms. Among Democrats, 79 percent are happy, while 58 percent of Republicans are also content with the outcome of the midterms.
  • Only 33 percent of Democrats want House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to be House Speaker, while 67 percent prefer someone new.

The survey of 1,407 registered voters was conducted Nov. 27-28. As a representative online sample, it does not report a probability confidence interval.
