In the latest poll by CNN, President Donald Trump’s job approval rating saw an uptick, reflecting the booming economy under his administration.

CNN’s Phil Mattingly delivered the statistics on Tuesday that show the president’s approval rating currently at 42 percent.

The disapproval rating for Trump sits at 51 percent, which is the lowest disapproval over his entire presidency.

During the longest partial government shutdown in history, Trump found himself at 37 percent approval, then at 40 percent approval in February, leading to his newest rise in March.

The president’s approval rating reflects Americans’ confidence in the economy.

Of those polled, 71 percent said the economy in good condition, portraying the best number since February 2001.

As IJR Red reported, Bureau of Economic Analysis statistics show that in 2018, the economy grew at a rate of 2.9 percent.

Kevin Hassett, the chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, previously said he is “confident” that “2019 will be another 3 percent year,” noting that “our policies are working.”

Republicans responded to the news of the upward poll numbers:

The latest approval rating comes at a time when the president continues to battle with Congress over his desired funding for the construction of a physical barrier along the U.S.-Mexico border, recently issuing his first veto as president on a resolution to block his national emergency declaration.
