Just hit 50% in the Rasmussen Poll, much higher than President Obama at same point.

The poll offered other bad news for the Republican, as 47% said they'd prefer a Democratic Congress to hold the President accountable.

President Donald Trump's approval rating is at 50 percent, according to a new poll.

The same poll also shows that 56% of Americans disapprove of the President's job performance, while 40% approve. As far as how Trump is handling the nation's economy, respondents were pretty split: 46 percent of respondents approve of how he is handling the economy and 48 percent do not.

Of the majority of Americans that live in rural parts of the country, 59 percent also approve of Trump's performance. A Gallup poll released Friday on Trump's favorability had similar findings, with only 38% of respondents viewing Trump favorably, as compared with 41% in December.

"You don't see knockout numbers here in April", Bill McInturff, a Republican tallier who conducted the poll along with Democratic expert Peter Hart, told NBC News.

The ABC News/Washington Post poll was conducted April 8-11 among 1,002 voters nationwide, with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.

While that's down three points from March, the pollsters noted enthusiasm for Democrats is high ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.

The results come after another tumultuous week for the Trump administration. Forty percent of voters said they would be sending a message with their November votes that more Democrats are needed to "check and balance" out Trump and congressional Republicans, as compared with 28% who believed more Republicans were needed to carry out Trump and the GOP's agenda.

His standing fell in almost every category among the 900 adults - including 720 registered voters -polled between April 8 and 11.
