Trump Approval Rating Up

Most also think he will beat Biden.

Some of the most recent polls available show an increase of support for President Trump. In fact, his 46% Gallup approval rating is basically on mark with Obama’s approval rating at this time in 2012. The disgraced 44th president went on to beat Mitt Romney in the general election.
