The Impeachment Inquiry Isn't Hurting Donald Trump's Approval Rating, New Polls Show

President Donald Trump's approval rating doesn't appear to be suffering over the ongoing impeachment inquiry, rising to 47 percent following a slight dip.

But despite his approval rating hitting 47 percent in two polls released on Monday, the amount of people who strongly disapprove of Trump's performance is almost as high at 45 percent, according to a Rasmussen Reports poll.

Meanwhile, the Harris X-Hill survey of 1,204 voters released on Monday showed that 53 percent of respondents either strongly disapproved or somewhat disapproved of the president's performance, with 39 percent of those people strongly disapproving. The poll, conducted from November 8-9, has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.8 percentage points.

The highest disapproval rate was among female voters surveyed, with 63 percent of women disapproving of Trump's performance and just 37 percent of women saying that they approved of his performance, The Hill reported.

Additionally, the Rasmussen poll also put Trump's disapproval rate at 52 percent, with a 47 percent approval rating (of which 33 percent strongly approved of his performance).

The president has managed to hang on to his approval rating, which has hovered in the mid-40s for much of his presidency, despite the ongoing impeachment inquiry that is dominating headlines (and Trump's twitter feed).

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the impeachment inquiry following a whistleblower complaint about a phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, in which it is alleged trump attempted to pressure Zelenskiy into investigating potential political rival Joe Biden.

Trump mentioned the Democratic presidential hopeful in the phone call, suggesting Zelenskiy look into Biden and his son, Hunter. Aid to the country was held up around the same time, although Trump has insisted that there was no pressure or quid pro quo in the phone call.

And since the impeachment inquiry was announced, Trump has certainly not suffered in the approval rating stakes, despite recent polls showing that public support for his impeachment is growing.

Indeed, a polling average taken by Real Clear Politics shows that 48.5 percent of people think Trump should be impeached and removed from office, while 45.7 percent do not think he should be impeached.

The president's fans, meanwhile, have hit back at the inquiry—donning "read the transcript" T-shirts at Trump rallies, and discussing whether the inquiry will galvanize his supporters in numerous tweets.
