Almost 50% of registered voters approved of Donald Trump’s performance as president, according to a Hill-HarrisX poll published Thursday.

The poll, which was conducted from Dec. 3 to Dec. 7, showed that 49% of respondents favored the president’s performance, while 51% disapproved, according to the Hill-HarrisX poll. The president has been hovering just below or at 50% for several months, polls show.

The previous Hill-HarrisX poll, which was conducted from Nov. 27 until Nov. 30 and was the first Hill-HarrisX poll completed after the election, found 50% of respondents approved of the president’s performance while 50% disapproved. That approval rating was a two-point increase from an October poll.

The president has an average approval rating of 44.6% across several polls, according to Real Clear Politics, while 52.4 disapprove of Trump’s job performance.
