President Trump’s average approval rating has inched up to 40 percent in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll, the highest level the president has seen this year. January polls had earlier put his approval rating at 36 percent. Those who disapprove of Trump’s job in the White House still outweigh those who support his work, with 56 percent of Americans unhappy with his job performance compared to 40 percent who expressed approval. Nearly a year and a half into his term, his average approval rating is still the lowest on record dating back to the presidency of Harry Truman, according to ABC News. While his handling of the economy saw an even split of 46-percent disapproval to 48-percent approval, 61 percent of respondents saw him as unlikeable “as a person.” Thirty-two percent view his personality favorably. The poll, conducted from April 8-11, was conducted among 1,002 adults.
