While President Donald Trump's approval rating has stayed around the same level, more Republicans are feeling the negative effects, according to a Pew Research Center survey released Monday.
Trump's approval rating is 39 percent, the same as a previous Pew rating two months ago. The percentage of those who disapprove of the president also has shown little movement.
- Trump approval rating today: 39 percent.
- Approval rating two months ago: 39 percent.
- Trump disapproval rating today: 54 percent.
- Disapproval rating two months ago: 56 percent.
The most movement came from voters' beliefs about the Republican Party.
- Favorable view of Republican Party: 40 percent.
- Favorable view two months ago: 47 percent.
However, Democrats are not seeing a corresponding rise in popularity. Their approval rating is also plunging:
- Favorable view of Democratic Party: 45 percent.
- Favorable view two months ago: 51 percent.
Republicans also have the advantage of dealing with terrorism and guns, according to the poll.
- Trust Republicans on dealing with terrorism: 48 percent.
- Trust Democrats on dealing with terrorism: 36 percent.
- Trust Republicans on gun policies: 46 percent.
- Trust Democrats on gun policies: 41 percent.
Voters are more trusting of Democrats on some issues:
- Democrats: 50 percent.
- Republicans 39 percent.
- Government spending:
- Democrats: 48 percent.
- Republicans: 40 percent.
- Democrats: 49 percent.
- Republicans: 36 percent.
That number is a switch from last April, when more Americans were in favor of Republicans on foreign policy, 46 percent to the Democrats' 38 percent.
The Pew Research Center surveyed 1,501 adults on April 5 through April 11 for the poll, with a plus or minus 2.9-point margin of error, Pew reported.
