SurveyMonkey’s weekly polling (ending Thursday July 20) finds 42 percent of adults nationwide approve of the way Donald Trump is handling his job as president and 57 percent disapprove. Compared to the previous week, that result represents no change in the approval percentage and a one-point uptick in disapproval (from 56 percent) since last week.
“Health care” edges up two percentage points over the past week (from 27 to 29 percent) as the selected issue that matters most to Americans, putting it five percentage points ahead of “jobs and the economy” at 24 percent (down a point higher than the previous week).
