This gives the president a net approval of 48 percent.
37 percent said that they “strongly disapprove.” 15 percent said they “somewhat disapprove.”
This gives Trump a net disapproval of 52 percent.
Trump's approval rating just hit its HIGHEST POINT in 2 years: 48% in the Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll survey.
A record 62% approve of Trump's approach to employment.
59% approve of Trump's handling of the economy.

“Every point of increase in this range of 45 to 50 improves the possibility of re-election,” Mark Penn, the co-director of the Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll, told The Hill.
The poll also showed how the strong economy is helping the president.
The survey asked: “How strong do you think the U.S. economy is today?”
21 percent said that the economy is “very strong.” 50 percent said it’s “somewhat strong.” Only 4 percent said it’s “very weak.” 26 percent said that it’s “somewhat weak.”
That’s 71 percent giving Trump a thumbs up on the economy and only 29 percent giving a thumbs down.
This is a strong number for the president from any angle.
After a Gallup Poll, taken April 17–30, showed improvements in President Trump’s overall job-approval rating, a Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll, conducted this week and released by The Hill, shows that public opinion is still moving in the president’s favor.

With over 500 days until the 2020 presidential election, anything can still happen. Hillary Clinton had some more promising poll numbers toward the end of the 2016 election compared to Trump, but in the end, the pollsters got it wrong about how that race would end.
This is not the only recent poll favorable to the president. The Political Insider reported Friday, “According to the latest Job Creators Network/ScottRasmussen.com Weekly Pulse poll, a majority of Americans believe the U.S. economy is in decent shape, with most saying it’s doing ‘excellent’ or ‘good.’
“When asked how they would gauge the current economy, 13 percent of respondents replied ‘excellent’ while another 39 percent said ‘good.’ 31 percent said the economy was ‘fair.”
While these are only two polls and there any many potential variables between now and the election, these are still good signs for Donald Trump. As the economy continues to improve along with the president’s poll numbers, whoever the Democrats nominate might have a tougher time than they imagined.
