The Zogby Poll: Trump's job approval tops 51%; A majority of Millennials approve of Trump; Nearly half of Generation Z voters approve of Trump; Trump is winning back Hispanic, Independent, college educated and urban voters

President Trump has crossed the critical 50% approval line needed to win reelection as millennials and independents are moving to embrace him, according to a new survey.

The latest Zogby Poll put Trump’s approval rating at 51%, his highest ever in the trademarked survey.

President Trump's job approval rating has seen a post Mueller report boost! We called it a few weeks ago. But that's not the complete story as to why the president has reached a peak in his job approval rating. Trump is also riding high on positive economic news-a record high stock market, low unemployment, and solid GDP growth at home. At the moment President Trump's approval rating is higher than Obama's at the same point in his presidency-Zogby Analytics had President Obama at 48% approve/52% disapprove on 05/09/2011.

Overall, a slim majority (51%--30% strongly and 21% somewhat approve) of likely voters approve of Trump's job as president, while 48% disapprove-37% strongly and 11% somewhat disapprove; only 2% were not sure.

President Trump scored well with younger Millennial voters aged 18-29 (51% approve/46% disapprove) and Generation Z voters aged 18-24 (49% approve/51% disapprove). The President also received a good approval rating with voters aged 25-54; he received a majority job approval rating from older Millennial voters aged 25-34 (53% approve/43% disapprove) and middle aged voters aged 35-54 (59% approve/38% disapprove). Among the oldest voters surveyed-aged 65+, Trump's disapproval rating was the strongest (59% disapprove/41% approve). As per usual, the president did well with men (58% approve/40% disapprove) and he improved his support with women (44% approve/54% disapprove).

When it came to the political party of surveyed voters, three quarters (78%) of Democrats disapproved of him, while 22% approved of Trump. An overwhelming number of Republicans approved (88% approve/11% disapprove), while Independents were more balanced in their impression of Trump's job performance (46% approve/50% disapprove).

Likely voters in the South (60% approve/39% disapprove) and West regions (49% approve/49% disapprove) were more likely to approve of Trump's job as president, while likely voters in the Central/Great Lakes (46% approve/53% disapprove) and East (45% approve/52% disapprove) regions were more likely to disapprove of Trump's job as commander in chief.

Trump also made gains with likely voters in large (47% approve/51% disapprove), medium (54% approve/46% disapprove), and small cities (49% approve/49% disapprove). President Trump also continued to have solid support among suburban (48% approve/50% disapprove) and rural voters (60% approve/37% disapprove).

The one important group Trump did see his support wane was with suburban women (41% approve/56% disapprove) but he gained with urban men (58% approve/40% disapprove).

One of the demographics to give Trump a very good job performance rating were self-identified social networkers (59% approve/40% disapprove-people who engage with social media). Trump has a huge following on Twitter and often utilizes his Twitter account to frequently get his message across to the public. The president also made strides with college educated voters (55% approve/45% disapprove), and saw support increase slightly with non-college educated voters (47% approve/50% disapprove).

What's driving Trump's improved job performance numbers? Voters' outlook on the economy the next four years: a slim majority of voters think the economy will be positive (excellent and good combined--22% excellent/29% good) versus 39% who think it will be negative (fair and poor combined-26% fair and 13% poor). A majority (58%) of men think things will be positive for the economy the next four years, including a plurality (31%) who says excellent. Only a third of men think things will be negative for economy the next four years (fair and poor combined).

More women than men think things will be negative (fair and poor combined-42%) but a plurality (44%) of women think things will be positive (excellent and fair combined) for the US economy.
