President Donald Trump’s standing among the American people is on the rise, while congressional Democrats are getting a message to back off their investigations of the White House, according to a new CNN poll.

The poll shows that Trump, whose approval ratings have often ranged under 40% in CNN’s national polling, is now at a 43% overall approval rating.

That’s Trump’s best showing in a CNN poll since April 2017, around the end of the first 100 days of Trump’s presidency, when he was at 42%.

Further, the percentage who strongly approve of Trump’s performance hit 35% — its highest ever in CNN polling.
