President Donald Trump’s job approval numbers continue to climb, according to the RealClearPolitics average of polls.
After an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll published Monday put Trump’s approval rating at 46 percent among registered voters, his RCP average rose to 44.4 percent, his highest mark since October 2018 following the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Trump’s highest RCP average of his presidency was 46 percent, just after his inauguration. Two months later, it dropped below 44 percent and stayed there, only briefly returning above that level in May, June and October of 2018.
Despite that improvement, the numbers still indicate the president is vulnerable heading into the 2020 election.
