President Trump’s impeachment trial and the flow of negative headlines accompanying it might have tested the resolve of supporters of presidents past.
Not the MAGA bunch, though.
According to a Gallup poll released on Tuesday, Trump’s approval rating of 49% has never been higher. Some of the factors credited in the survey for driving the improvement include the death of Iranian military leader Qassem Soleimani, the strong U.S. economy and progress on foreign trade.
Breaking down the numbers, support among GOP voters stands at 94%, a 6-point bump from the last poll. Independents rose by 3 points to 42%.
Democrats, however, dropped 3 points to 7% approval.
The 87-point gap between Republicans and Democrats is the biggest ever recorded, surpassing the prior record held by both Trump and Obama.
Gallup also noted that Bill Clinton saw a similar bump — to his personal high of 73% — after his House impeachment vote
