President Donald Trump’s approval rating is rising amid the coronavirus pandemic, according to a new IBD/TIPP poll released Monday.

Forty-five percent of Americans approve of the job Trump is doing, up four percentage points since March. Additionally, 43 percent approve of how Trump is handling the outbreak, compared with 41 percent who said they disapprove.

The poll also found that Democratic presidential front runner Joe Biden leads Trump, 47 percent to 41 percent, in a hypothetical matchup.

Biden and Trump on Monday talked about the national response to the coronavirus pandemic, according to Reuters.

"He gave me his point of view, and I fully understood that. And we just had a very friendly conversation, lasted probably 15 minutes. And it was really good," Trump said at a news briefing.

Biden’s campaign has reached out to state and local officials offering to assist with their responses to the outbreak.

U.S. coronavirus deaths on Monday surpasses 10,000, including 4,758 in New York. Infections have surged to more than 352,000, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. Globally, more than 1.3 million people have been infected by the coronavirus, and a total of 73,917 people have died of COVID-19.

The poll surveyed 1,226 adults aged 18+ nationwide with a margin of error +/- 2.9 percentage points.
