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

A Washington Post/ABC News poll released Sunday put the president's approval rating at 40%. Those who strongly disapprove of Trump outnumber those who strongly approve by almost two to one.

In recent months, however, Rasmussen had Trump's approval rating in the high 40s and low 50s. 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.

According to the poll, 34 percent of respondents strongly approve of Trump's performance, while 40 percent highly disapprove. An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll showed the president's approval rating was 39 percent with a disapproval rating of 57 percent.

Another key takeaway from the NBC News/Washington Post poll is the advantage Democrats hold in enthusiasm, with 66% of Democrats polled expressing a high level of interest in the November midterm elections, as opposed to 49% of Republicans.

The president said it's "hard to believe" he is at 50 percent in the Rasmussen poll, given all the "phony stories and Fake News".

The NBC/WSJ poll interviewed 900 adults April 8-11 with a margin of error of 3.3 percentage points.

In both polls, voters were reached via cell phone or landline phone.

"2018 is shaping up as a referendum on President Donald Trump", Democratic pollster Peter Hart, whose firm conducted the NBC/WSJ poll, told NBC News.
