Rasmussen's daily presidential tracking poll had Trump's approval rating at 50 percent on Friday, with 49 percent of respondents disapproving of his job performance.

However, 53 percent of all white respondents to this poll approve of how Trump is doing as president, up seven points from January's poll. Those who strongly disapprove of Trump outnumber those who strongly approve by almost two to one.

The president fared even worse in an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Sunday, which put Trump's approval rating at 39%, down four points from March.

According to the Post/ABC poll, Americans remain largely evenly split on Trump's handling of the economy, with 46% approving and 48% disapproving.

"You don't see knockout numbers here in April", Bill McInturff, a Republican tallier who conducted the poll along with Democratic expert Peter Hart, told NBC News. An ABC News/ Washington Post poll showed 56 percent disapproved of the job Trump was doing compared to 40 percent who approved.

His standing fell in almost every category among the 900 adults - including 720 registered voters -polled between April 8 and 11. Sixty-six percent of Democrat voters expressed a high level of interest in the midterm elections, as compared with 49% of Republicans - an exact reversal of a poll conducted ahead of the midterm elections in 2010, NBC News noted. The sample size was 900 adults, with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.3 percentage points for the full sample.

According to the NBC/WSJ poll, Democratic voters are also more enthusiastic about heading to the polls in November.
