A new poll indicates that President Trump has his best approval rating in seven months.

This isn’t the only good news. More Americans also credit Trump with the state of the economy than former president Barack Obama.

According to Quinnipiac University National Poll, President Trump has hit his highest approval ratings in seven months. He currently has an approval rating of 40 percent, a number he hasn’t hit since June 29, 2017.

Additionally, 48 percent of Americans polled credit Trump with the state of the economy, while 41 percent say Obama deserves more credit.

This poll also indicates a high point in approval of the economy under Trump, with 70 percent of respondents saying the economy is “excellent” or “good.”

Unemployment claims in the United States are currently at their lowest number in 45 years. Wages in America also grew in January 2018 at the quickest rate since 2009.

And in at least half of American states, wages have increased by three percent, the Christian Science Monitor reports.
