Trump's approval rating is buoyed in large part by Republicans, 90 percent of whom gave him positive marks in the Gallup poll. Thirty-three percent of independents approve of Trump, as do just 4 percent of Democrats, according to the poll.

The poll surveyed 1,039 people from March 1 to 10 and has a margin of error of 4 percentage points.

Trump's approval rating has consistently hovered around 40 percent for much of his presidency. A RealClearPolitics average of approval rating polls shows him with a 43 percent approval rating.

The new Gallup poll was released amid a week in which Trump is set to face two rebukes from the Senate. 

Senators on Wednesday passed a joint resolution calling for an end to U.S. support of the Saudi-led military campaign in Yemen. On Thursday, the Senate is expected to pass a resolution to block the president's national emergency declaration at the southern border.

Trump has indicated he will veto both measures.
