The president kicked off the year with a 45 percent weekly average approval rating in January and had an overall approval average of 39 percent for 2017. 

The president's latest weekly approval rating in December came after he scored his first legislative victory with congressional Republicans on tax reform. 

However, the Republican-backed tax plan does not appear to be widely popular with the American people. 

An NBC News–Wall Street Journal poll last month found that only 24 percent of Americans believed the tax plan was a good idea. 

Trump and congressional Republicans are bracing to defend both chambers of Congress from Democrats during the 2018 midterm races.
