Trump's job-approval rating inched up to 43 percent, three points higher than where it was in August, according to the NBC/WSJ poll released Thursday. As more reports come out that suggest the president is on the outs with McConnell and Ryan and more reports come in that suggest the president is cozying up to Schumer and Pelosi, the president may turn to his favorite metric in deciding with whom to partner: ratings, ratings, ratings. However, the majority disapprove of his handling of healthcare, race relations, the environment, the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, and most of all his use of Twitter. They also disagreed with the way the president is handling health-care reforms, race relations, and tensions with North Korea.

Just a combined 33 percent of Americans believe he has accomplished a "great deal" or "fair amount" as president.

Trump's marginally rising popularity may be welcome news for the White House, but he still has a long way to go when it comes to bumping up his ratings.

Governor Ton Wolf's positive job approval ratings (38 percent) are similar to the ratings he received in Ma, according to the poll. Five per cent of respondents had no opinion on the matter.

"Trump's post-Charlottesville plunge proved to be short-lived, and his approval has stabilized", said Morning Consult Co-founder and Chief Research Officer Kyle Dropp. The president's favorability rating improved among Republicans (73 percent to 80 percent) and independents (35 percent to 40 percent) but was unchanged among Democrats (8 percent).

However, it also reported that 65 per cent of Americans think the U.S.is on the "wrong track".
