Most say they believe Federal Bureau of Investigation over Trump

11 February 2018

According to Quinnipiac University National Poll, President Trump has hit his highest approval ratings in seven months.

Trump had a 40 percent approval rating, against 55 percent of respondents disapproving of his job, during the survey conducted Friday through Monday. Seven in 10 American voters, 70%, say the USA economy is excellent or good - the best mark on this question since 2001.

48 percent say Trump is more responsible for the economic growth than former President Barack Obama. The tax plan itself has experienced a 13-point jump in approval since it passed, from 26% to 39%.

57 percent disapprove of Trump's foreign policy efforts; 37 percent approve. Two-thirds of American voters overall give a resounding "no" to that question -- but Republican voters are roughly evenly split.

A plurality of Republican voters, 46 percent, say that Mueller has not been fair in his investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

A broad 77 percent of GOP voters say that the investigation into Trump associates and Russian meddling is a "witch hunt", according to Tuesday's new survey from Quinnipiac.

The issue of immigration is not worth a government shutdown, 66 percent of voters say.

"The post State of the Union bump kicks in", assistant poll director Tim Malloy said in a statement.

"Americans are feeling good about their personal finances, but we'll have to see whether the Wall Street plunge takes a toll on the guy in charge", Malloy said.

Malloy also highlighted voters' economic happiness. Still, 62% think the plan mostly helps the wealthy, a number almost unchanged since November.Favorable views of the Republican Party are up from 24% before tax reform passed to 32% now, though a majority of voters, 51%, still view the governing party unfavorably.This was conducted February 2-5, 2018, among 1,333 registered voters.
