Granted, President Trump’s approval ratings are still less than 50 percent, but with a strong economy, great job numbers, and a strong stance internationally they seem to be finally headed in the right direction.
The latest Zogby Analytics online polling of 1,300 likely voters, conducted August 4 through August 7, shows President Trump’s approval rating up 2 percent from July to 45 percent overall, with 51 percent of likely voters disapproving of his job performance as president. The margin of error was +/- 2.7 percentage points.

Men gave the president his only solid win, with 49 percent approving to 48 percent disapproving. His rating with women improved slightly but still lingered at 40 percent.
Interestingly, it was the groups the president might not be expected to perform well with that provided the most surprise. Union voters gave Trump a 51 percent majority, up from 43 percent in July. The president’s approval with Hispanics rose 11 percent to 42 percent approval. 55 percent of Hispanics disapproved, but this is still a major gain with an unexpected demographic.
Here is some more details from the poll, according to Zogby:
married voters-53% approve/43% disapprove
single voters-31%approve/61% disapprove
homeowners-50% approve/47% disapprove
renters-35% approve/59% disapprove
NASCAR fans-58% approve/37% disapprove
Weekly Walmart shoppers-55% approve/43% disapprove.
Although the Zogby polling showed improvements from its own numbers from prior months, many criticized the poll simply because it isn’t as low as other polls.
The president is actually touting a Zogby poll saying he has rebounded to 45%. https://t.co/ZS3hG3LtMh
