President Donald Trump's approval rating has jumped 10 points in a month and now stands at 42 percent, according to a new Monmouth University Poll.

Fifty percent disapprove of his job performance.

Overall, it is a marked improvement for Trump, who had a 32 percent approval rating last month, while 56 percent disapproved of his job performance.

Here is how the poll breaks down:

  • 45 percent of those polled would vote for the Republican candidate if congressional elections were held today, while 47 percent would support the Democratic candidate.
  • 38 percent say Trump should be impeached, while 57 percent say he should not.
  • 50 percent say they are optimistic about policies Trump will pursue in the next few years, while 45 percent say they are pessimistic.
  • 44 percent say they approve of the tax reform plan passed by Congress, while 44 disapprove.
  • 41 percent are confident in Trump's ability to deal with North Korea; 6 percent are not sure, but lean toward confident; 11 percent are not sure, but lean toward not confident and 40 percent are not confident.

The poll, conducted from Jan. 28-29, surveyed 806 adults. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percent.
