According to a new poll conducted by Politico and Morning Consult, 49 percent of voters approve of Trump’s presidency so far, while 41 percent disapprove. That is a stark contrast from the latest Gallup poll, which claims only 45 percent of voters approve of how Trump has handled things in office so far, with 48 percent disapproval.

The poll — which surveyed 1,991 people online from Jan. 26 to Jan. 28 — also found that 25 percent of registered voters agree with the president that millions of people voted illegally in the election. However, 35 percent of those people think that if there were fraudulent votes, they probably benefited Trump instead of his rival Hillary Clinton.

On Tuesday night, Trump announced his nomination for the Supreme Court, Judge Neil Gorsuch.

“I made a promise to the people that I would find the very best judge in the country to nominate to the Supreme Court,” Trump said from the White House. “Millions of people said this was the single most important decision.” (RELATED: Conservatives Are Thrilled That President Trump Nominated This Person To The Supreme Court)
