John Zogby said President Donald Trump's poll numbers are looking good.

While Trump's approval ratings are not great, "they are also not numbers that jeopardize a re-election bid in 2020," the founder of the Zogby survey wrote in an opinion piece for Forbes.

Trump has been plagued by a slew of controversies and negative news reports, yet despite this, the President's approval numbers are among the highest to date at 47 percent, which exceeds the percentage of the vote he attained in 2016, Zogby noted. Meanwhile his disapproval rating sits among the lowest of his presidency at 51 percent.

While Zobgy noted the ratings are nothing to "brag much about" they could mean that Trump opponents in the next Presidential election may have a tough fight ahead of them.

Earlier this month Gallup Analytics noted an improvement in Trump's job approval rating after running two separate polls.

Over 1,500 adults were polled in all 50 states by phone from April 30 to May 6, and it was determined that Trump's approval ratings among every party have increased, even Democrats, though Republicans remain by far the most supportive.

New York Magazine noted a direct link between Trump signing his tax cuts into law and an increase in his support from Republicans and Independents.

At the start of his presidency, 79 percent of conservative Republicans believed Trump could "get things done," but that number dropped to 60 percent by last December.

However, earlier this year that number jumped back into the mid-70s when the tax cuts were signed in.

Zogby noted that, while the Middle East "is in turmoil on a number of fronts" and Trump is "alienating friends and foes alike," unemployment "is at a staggering 3.9%, wages continue to move up, and nations he was angering over trade are looking to make deals."
