Americans gave President Donald Trump a bump in his job approval rating in the wake of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation and a surging U.S. economy, a new poll shows.
In the CNN survey, Trump's approval rating rose to 41 percent, compared with 36 percent in early September, and 42 percent in early August.
Those who disapprove of the job the president is doing decreased to 52 percent, from 58 percent in early September and 53 percent in early August.
According to the poll, among those who approve of the president, 72 percent cite his views on the issues, while 21 percent says it’s his personality and leadership qualities they admire. Among those who disapprove, 52 percent cite his personality and 38 percent say it’s his position on issues.
The CNN poll found another GOP politician who got a Kavanaugh bump: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. McConnell's favorability is 30 percent, while 45 percent have an unfavorable view. The favorability finding is his best since December 2010, CNN reported.
The poll's margin of error is 3.8 percent.
