President Trump's job approval rating is very good at the moment, even as he deals with a Senate trial that could potentially remove him from office - a scenario that is very unlikely because Republicans control a majority of the Senate. The president performs very well with his base-men (58% at least somewhat approve/41% at least somewhat disapprove), voters age 50-64 (52% at least somewhat approve/47% at least somewhat disapprove), non-college educated voters (49% at least somewhat approve/48% at least somewhat disapprove), union members (64% at least somewhat approve/34% at least somewhat disapprove), rural (61% at least somewhat approve/37% at least somewhat disapprove) and Southern voters (59% at least somewhat approve/39% at least somewhat disapprove). The President's numbers have also drastically improved with men compared to our previous polls.

The president also improved his job approval rating with Independents (45% at least somewhat approve/49% at least somewhat disapprove), and women (45% at least somewhat approve/52% at least somewhat disapprove). He also saw his numbers climb to the low forties with voters aged 18-29 (43% at least somewhat approve/52% at least somewhat disapprove) and aged 18-24 (Trump leads 42% at least somewhat approve/55% at least somewhat disapprove.

President Trump is also getting a decent approval rating among voters aged 25-34 (46% at least somewhat approve/50% at least somewhat disapprove) and aged 30-49 (53% at least somewhat approve/44% at least somewhat disapprove).

Where Trump has improved the most is with swing voters such as suburban women (49% at least somewhat approve/49% at least somewhat disapprove) and all suburban voters (49% at least somewhat approve/49% at least somewhat disapprove). Surprisingly he also has a majority job approval with large city voters (52% at least somewhat approve/46% at least somewhat disapprove).
