President Trump sees poll improvement after summer slumps

President Trump’s approval ratings dipped to some historic lows over the summer, but, based on recent inquiries conducted by various opinion pollsters, his numbers show signs of improvement.

Results from the most recent Politico/Morning Consult survey put the president at 43 percent approval, up from the 39 percent he earned following his handling of the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. 

A Marist College poll last week has the president at 39 percent approval, compared to the 35 percent he previously earned.
