President Trump's approval rating in one of the major daily tracking polls has improved significantly and is now higher than President Barack Obama's on the same date of his first term.

However, as many as 55 per cent of United States voters still said they did not approve of the job Trump was doing, the poll found, noting that 60 per cent voters believed that Trump was doing more to divide the country than to unite the country. Seven in 10 American voters, 70%, say the USA economy is excellent or good - the best mark on this question since 2001.

Until late last week, his disapproval rate has been above 50 percent every day for 10 months. "And an attaboy on the economy doubles the pleasure for President Donald Trump", said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll".

A total of 75 percent of American voters say their financial situation is "excellent" or "good". This is a reversal from Obama's 49-40% advantage last month and a stark contrast to Obama's 67-19% spread last March. Voters approve 51 percent to 43 percent of the way Trump is handling the economy, the highest figures on the issue since the president's inauguration.

From his earliest days in the White House, Trump has credited himself with driving down the unemployment rate, spurring job creation and influencing record gains in the stock market. Still, 62% think the plan mostly helps the wealthy, a number almost unchanged since November.

The Quinnipiac survey was conducted February 2-5 among 1,333 nationwide voters. The margin of sampling error is ±3.3 percentage points; it is larger for subgroups.
