The poll, conducted over three days nearly entirely before President Donald Trump's State of the Union Address, 47 percent of respondents saying they would vote for a generic congressional Democrat compared to 45 percent for a generic Republican, well within the poll's 3.5 percent margin of error. Trump now enjoys an approval rating of 42 percent.

The figure represents the first time Trump's approval ratings have topped 40% since September 2017 - and his best showing in a Monmouth approval poll since last March, when 43% of Americans thought he was doing a good job.

Now, public opinion is truly split, with 44 per cent saying they approve of the GOP-led tax plan, and another 44 per cent saying they're not into it. A Fox News poll showed him up from 38% to 45% among registered voters since October.

In addition to West Virginia, the states where at least half the respondents approved of Trump included several western states (Wyoming, Idaho, Montana and Alaska), several southern states (Oklahoma, Alabama, Kentucky, Tennessee and Arkansas) and two Midwestern states (North and South Dakota).

According to a new Quinnipiac poll, nearly three-quarters of Republicans think President Donald Trump is a good role model for children, while more than two-thirds of Americans on average disagree. A majority of Americans - 55% - say the President has been at least somewhat successful in getting Congress to pass his legislative agenda, up from 42% last month.

"The generic congressional ballot is prone to bouncing around for a bit until the campaign really gets underway later this year", said Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute, in a release accompanying the poll.

Democratic overperformance in special elections, the of promising candidates, and a wave of retirements among congressional Republicans in the last few months has played into a narrative of a growing Democratic wave election come November.

The poll, conducted from January 28-29, surveyed 806 adults.
