The latest approval statistics from reuters Polling shows that a clear majority of American voters now stand behind President Trump's job performance, in spite of the ongoing controversies surrounding the president's executive order on immigration, the confirmation of Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education, and the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the United States Supreme Court.

A clear majority approves of Trump

Reuters' rolling poll shows that 50.1 percent of Americans approve of Trump's job performance as of Feb. 6, while 47.3 percent disapprove, and 2.7 percent have mixed feelings.

This is significant because the poll shows that Trump's approval rating has surged by more than two percentage points between Feb. 4 and Feb. 6, and marks the highest approval rating for the president since January 29 -- an indication that his supporters have not abandoned him in the wake of harsh criticisms stemming from the executive order he signed on Jan. 27 calling for a temporary ban of immigration from seven countries identified as terror hotspots.

Another significant aspect of the poll is that the latest numbers represent 1,606 respondents, whereas January 29th's approval rating of 50.7 percent represents just 1,370 respondents. The latest Reuters poll reveals that 86.4 percent of Republicans approve of Trump's job performance, while 78.8 percent of Democrats disapprove.

Among Democrats, Trump has earned the approval of 18.7 percent. Among Republicans, only 12.3% disapprove of the president's performance.

Trump still struggles with minorities and millenials

Male voters have rewarded Trump with an approval rating of 56.3 percent, while only 43.6 percent of female voters said they approve of the job the president is doing.

When it comes to black voters, however, only 21 percent of respondents said they approve of Trump's performance.

The president has also failed to bolster his standing among young voters; of voters between the ages of 18 and 29, only 30 percent approve. Conversely, voters in the 40-49 age group approve of President Trump by a wide margin, with 54 percent expressing approval and 43 percent expressing disapproval.
