President Donald Trump's approval rating rose 3 percentage points in the latest Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday, as voters said that his speech to Congress last week was better that expected.

Trump received a 41 percent approval rating from the 1,283 voters surveyed between Thursday and Monday.

His disapproval rating was 52 percent.

That compared with a 38-55 approval percent rating in Quinnipiac's Feb. 22 survey.

In addition, 49 percent said president's congressional speech was better than expected, compared with 39 percent said it was as expected and 3 percent said was worse than expected.

"The Trump camp can only hope the president’s blip in approval is not a fleeting nod to his speech to Congress," Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University poll, said in analyzing the results.

"He remains on his heels in so many character categories that this survey is only slightly more encouraging than the troubling Quinnipiac University survey of a few weeks ago."

Here are the latest survey results:
