The President's approval rating in the Real Clear Politics average hovers around 41%, which may be close to the ceiling. It is becoming increasingly likely that the President's numbers should be viewed as that high because of the economic good news, not low in spite of the good economic news. Regardless, there is a warning sign in the new Morning Consult online polling, which tends to be more favorable to the President.
According to this poll, the President's disapproval is at a new low, meaning fewer Americans disapprove of the President than ever before. That sounds great, but it appears the reason is because Republicans have rallied to the President after tax reform. Well over 80% of Democrats and 49% of Independent voters still disapprove of the President. If that trend holds, it could help the GOP hold Republican districts in November, but still wipe out enough seats to give the Democrats the House and potentially take the Senate.
