Trump sees slight uptick in approval rating

On other issues, Trump's performance has been less popular.

According the most recent data, President Trump's job performance ratings have declined since the May Poll, falling from 37 percent to 29 percent. They also disagreed with the way the president is handling health-care reforms, race relations, and tensions with North Korea. 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. Just 28 percent of Americans said they would somewhat oppose this move.

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.

Another recent poll from Politico/Morning Consult showed identical approval ratings for Trump, showing strong divisions along party lines.

A similar poll conducted at this point in Barack Obama's presidency found that 59 per cent of Americans said he had accomplished a "great deal". Five per cent of respondents had no opinion on the matter.

US To Give $32 Million To Aid the Rohingya
The Rohingya exodus began August 25, after Rohingya insurgent attacks on police set off a military crackdown. More than 400,000 Rohingya have fled from Myanmar (also known as Burma) to Bangladesh since August 25.

Instead, HuffPost's average shows that Trump's rating among Republicans improved from a net +62 at the beginning of August to a net +67 now, a figure that rose among independents from a net -22 to a net -16 in the same period.

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

"Going to the middle has helped him with the middle - without costing him much from his own base", Democratic pollster Fred Yang, who conducted the poll, told NBC.

According to the poll, 71 percent of respondents said they approve of Trump's deal to fund hurricane relief and keep the government open.

A vast majority of all respondents, 76 percent, told Monmouth that undocumented immigrants who have worked in the US for at least two years should have a path to citizenship.
