The net approval of President Donald Trump’s job performance broke into positive territory for the first time in more than five months on Monday, Rasmussen Reports Daily Presidential Tracking Poll shows.

According to Rasmussen’s national telephone survey of 1,500 likely voters, 51% now approve of Trump’s performance, while 47% disapprove. The last time a majority of voters voiced approval was back on February 27 when 52% approved.

Those who “strongly approve” of Trump hit 40%, while 41% “strongly disapprove.”

Trump’s net approval turned positive thanks to the support of non-Black minority voters, Rasmussen’s Platinum membership Daily Snapshot reveals. Slightly more Whites (50%-49%) and Blacks (49%-48%) disapprove of Trump. But, 63% of all other minority voters approve and only 35% say disapprove.
