President Donald Trump’s approval rating has jumped 6 percentage points in the last two weeks, according to the latest Gallup poll.

Forty-nine percent approve of the president’s performance, compared with 47 percent who don’t.

A big surge in Trump’s approval numbers comes from Independents, with 47 percent saying they approve compared with 39 percent in the last survey.

About 50 percent of Americans approve of the president’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic, which is down from last month when 60 percent approved of how he dealt with the crisis.

Trump also had a 49 percent approval rating in mid-March, according to Gallup, before his rating took a 6-point dip in the first half of April.

This bump in approval ratings for Trump comes as the country is shifting to reopening most within the next few days in some places.

The Gallup poll is made up of 1,016 U.S. adults who were interviewed by phone between April 14 to 28. The margin of error is 4 percentage points.

Meanwhile, former vice president Joe Biden is ahead of Trump, 44 percent to 38 percent, in the new USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll
