More than half of Americans say they are better off now than they were under the Obama administration, a new survey from Gallup revealed.

A majority of 56% of Americans said they were better off under President Trump, compared to 32% who said they are worse off than four years ago.

Trump responded to the survey in a tweet on Thursday.

The majority is the highest ever recorded this close to an election, but is a decline from a February survey that showed 61% of Americans said they were better off than before Trump took office in January 2017.

Previous incumbent approval rates before the election include former President Barack Obama's at 45%, former President George W. Bush's at 47%, and former President George H.W. Bush's at 38%.
