A new Gallup poll released on Tuesday revealed President Trump's current approval rating ties his highest for the term, a sign that the American electorate is pleased with the president's handling of the ongoing coronavirus crisis.
According to the poll, 49% of Americans approve of the president's job in the White House, up five points from the same poll earlier this month. He has even shown gains among Democrats, polling six points higher in that demographic.
One Gallup analyst noted that presidential job approval ratings have traditionally "increased when the nation is under threat." Trump was earlier criticized for what was perceived as a delayed response to the crisis, though he has received more bipartisan praise over the last few weeks as his administration has ramped up its response.
