President Donald Trump's job approval rating is holding steady in the mid-40s, fueled by a strong economy — but his standing is less strong with women, a new poll showed Monday.
In the Harvard CAPS/Harris online survey conducted for The Hill, 46 percent of respondents say they approve of Trump's job performance, while 54 percent disapprove.
The news site noted the finding is in line with other surveys; a Real Clear Politics polling average shows the president's job approval rating is 44.2 percent.
In a breakdown by gender, Trump has a 49 percent job approval and 51 percent disapproval; among female voters, he nets a 44 percent job approval compared with 56 percent who disapprove.
"Trump numbers remain steady in the mid-forties as the pummeling in the press he took in the last month failed to create much change in the face of a strong economy," Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll co-director Mark Penn told The Hill.
"The gender gap keeps sharpening with men strongly supporting Trump and women backing away."
According to the poll, 57 percent of voters approve of Trump's handling of the economy, and a majority also approve of how he is fighting terrorism and creating jobs. But 53 percent believe the country is on the wrong track, compared to 38 percent who believe it is on the right track, The Hill reported.
The online survey of 1,228 registered voters was conducted Sept. 26-27.
