Poll Watch

White Americans still think Trump is doing a good job

President Trump has been unable to shake his dismal approval ratings, with a new poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research finding only 42 percent of Americans approve of his performance in office while 58 percent disapprove. But so far, Trump has done little to worry his political base — more white Americans view Trump favorably than don't, with 53 percent approving of his job as president.

White Americans without a college degree like Trump even more; 58 percent approved of the job he is doing as president. Among Republicans, just a fifth disapprove of Trump's presidency; with independents, that number is six in 10.

The survey was conducted between March 23-27 and reached 1,110 adults. The margin of error is plus or minus 4 points. See more results from the poll below. Jeva Lange
