The president has been on a roll, with major legislative successes this week, and now the Senate is set to vote on his Supreme Court nominee.
A new poll finds that Senators who are in the majority have a slight advantage over Senators who vote with the majority.
The poll, conducted by the University of New Hampshire, found that 46 percent of the public would vote for Neil Gorsuch, while 46 percent would vote against him.
The same survey found that 41 percent of respondents would vote to confirm Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, while 44 percent would oppose him.
Senators who support the president are also more likely to vote in his favor than those who oppose him: 42 percent of Republicans would vote in favor of Gorsuch, compared to 36 percent of Democrats.
The president is also more popular with independents and Democrats than he is with Republicans.
51 percent of those surveyed say they would vote with Republicans in the Senate, compared with 34 percent who would vote Democrats in the chamber.
But the poll also found that a majority of Democrats are opposed to Gorsuch, and just 34 percent of independents support the nomination.
This is good news for the Democrats, who have a long history of supporting the president, particularly when it comes to nominations to the high court.
But when it came to Trump’s Supreme Court nominees, 51 percent supported them in the poll.
Republicans opposed to the president have a much more favorable opinion of them.
Only 34 percent said they would be opposed to Judge Neil Gorsuch.
The public is split on the merits of Gorsuch’s nomination, with 45 percent approving of his qualifications to the court and 44 percent disapproving.
When it came down to it, the Senate should be voting on whether Gorsuch is qualified to serve on the Supreme Supreme Court.
But a majority (52 percent) say the Senate ought to delay its vote on Gorsuch’s confirmation until the Democrats hold a majority in the House of Representatives.
Trump’s approval rating has also risen over the past month.
It stands at 56 percent, up from 57 percent in September.
That’s the highest level since the president took office.
Trump continues to lead Democrats in Senate approval.
Seventy-five percent of Senate Democrats approve of the job Trump is doing, while only 38 percent of Republican Democrats do.
Forty-two percent of Independents approve of Trump, and only 23 percent of Democratic Independants.
Trump has been winning over independents by an average of 14 points in every poll conducted by Rasmussen Reports.
Republicans are losing ground in the polls, as well.
The last time Republicans had an approval rating higher than 70 percent was in July of 2017, according to Rasmussen Reports data.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on October 3-5, 2017 by Rasmussen Analytics.
The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
