NBC/WSJ Poll: Trump Approval 'Remarkably Stable' Despite Bad Week

(NBC's "Meet the Press")

By    |   Sunday, 26 August 2018 12:08 PM

Despite a potentially damaging week politically, President Donald Trump's approval rating is "remarkably stable," according to NBC News/The Wall Street Journal poll.

The president's approval rating hit an all-time high of 46 percent in the NBC/WSJ poll surveyed between Aug. 18-22, but with the conviction of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and guilty plea by former attorney for the president Michael Cohen on Aug. 21, the poll surveyed another 600 respondents Aug. 22-25 and found the approval rating dipped 2 percentage points to 44, a shift that is within the poll's 4-point margin of error.

The step to conduct an ensuing survey was "unusual," according to NBC News' report.

"Republican pollster Bill McInturff of Public Opinion Strategies, who conducted this survey with Democratic pollster Peter Hart and his team at Hart Research Associates, called Trump's approval rating 'remarkably stable' despite the Manafort and Cohen developments, both of which became public on the same afternoon last Tuesday," NBC reported.

"Hart adds that, for Democrats hoping to craft a midterm election strategy, the week's news thus far 'represents a fools gold opportunity rather than a silver bullet solution.'"

Among the other notables from the NBC/WSJ polls:

  • 56 percent of voters believe President Trump has not been honest and truthful about special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.
  • 40 percent of voters believe Trump might be involved in wrongdoing.
  • Voters prefer a Democratic-held Congress over GOP one by 8 percent 50-42.

GOP holds a 14-point edge (43-29) over Democrats on dealing with the economy, reportedly a record high in the poll.
