Despite constant criticism from the mainstream media, President Donald Trump's favorability among Americans has recovered to tie the highest level of his term, according to a new poll.

Here's what the poll says

According to the Gallup poll, Trump's approval rating has climbed back to 45 percent, which is the highest approval he's ranked on Gallup since the beginning of his term. Another 50 percent say they disapprove of the president.

Trump had the same approval rating at the end of the week of Jan. 29, 2017.

The economy continues to improve and Trump has declared victory after the summit in Singapore with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, despite criticism from the media and many on the left.

The president's highest disapproval rating has hit 60 percent numerous times during his term, while his approval has dropped to 35 percent twice in the same poll.

The media has lately used the immigration policy of child separation at the border to criticize the president, but so far it does not appear to have had a negative toll on his favorability ratings.

How reliable is this poll?

The weekly Gallup poll tracks presidential favorability by questioning 1,500 national adults via telephone. The poll has an error margin of +/- three percentage points.
