( -- The latest polling data from Gallup show that President Trump's job approval rating is at 42% and Congress' job approval is less than half of that at 20%. In the Congress, Republicans dominate in the Senate (53-47)  and Democrats dominate in the House of Representatives (235-198).

Gallup's numbers for the president's job approval are from May 12, 2019, and are based on daily tracking averages and periodic multiday polls, according to the survey firm. As of May 12, 42% of Americans approve of Trump's job performance and 52% disapprove.

For comparison, Rasmussen Reports for May 28 puts the president's job approval at 46% and disapproval at 53%.
