Respondents gave Trump his best marks on the short-term deal he struck with Democrats.

U.S. President Donald Trump saw a boost in his approval rating this week following his decision to provide money for hurricane relief and work with Democrats to prevent a government shutdown. Fifty-two percent said they either strongly or somewhat disapprove of Trump's job performance, down 3 points from the August poll.

President Donald Trump's September approval rating is four points higher than August, according to a recent poll. The Real Clear Politics polling average of Trump's approval rating now sits at 40.6 percent, just over 3 points better than his low point in mid-August.

On other issues, Trump's performance has been less popular.

Instead, HuffPost's average shows that Trump's rating among Republicans improved from a net +62 at the beginning of August to a net +67 now, a figure that rose among independents from a net -22 to a net -16 in the same period. Immediately after Charlottesville, 35 percent of independent voters approved of Trump, and 58 percent disapproved.

However, only 33 percent of respondents believed Trump has accomplished a "great deal" as president, versus 66 percent who said he has accomplished "only some" or "very little". Just 27 percent said they approve of his handling of healthcare, while 24 percent approved of his handling of the environment and climate change.

The NBC/WSJ poll was conducted September 14-18 of 900 adults - almost half reached by cell phone - has a margin of error of plus-minus 3.3 percentage points.

In comparison, just 36 percent of Republican voters said they were satisfied with their party's congressional leaders, while 59 percent were dissatisfied.

"Going to the middle has helped him with the middle - without costing him much from his own base", Democratic pollster Fred Yang, who conducted the poll, told NBC.
