Pollster says Trump's approval rating has weathered the storm in his presidency

Pollster Mallory Newall told Hill.TV on Monday that President TrumpDonald John TrumpCNN's Camerota clashes with Trump's immigration head over president's tweet LA Times editorial board labels Trump 'Bigot-in-Chief' Trump complains of 'fake polls' after surveys show him trailing multiple Democratic candidates MORE's approval rating has weathered the storm of numerous unflattering news stories during his administration, but questioned whether that would last for the 2020 elections. 

"His approval rating sort of weathers the storm regardless of what is happening," Newall, research director at Ipsos Public Affairs, told host Jamal Simmons on "What America's Thinking." 

"He seems to hold steady in the mid to low 40 percent range, and the question is, is that going to be enough to carry him to victory in 2020," she continued. 

"I think this week is going to be another great test of that," Newall said. 

The Real Clear Politics polling average showed Trump's approval rating at 43.6 percent on Monday, while his disapproval sat at 52.8 percent. 

Newall's comments come one day after Attorney General William Barr sent Congress his summary of special counsel Robert MuellerRobert (Bob) Swan MuellerTop Republican considered Mueller subpoena to box in Democrats Kamala Harris says her Justice Dept would have 'no choice' but to prosecute Trump for obstruction Dem committees win new powers to investigate Trump MORE's findings in the federal probe into Russia's election meddling.
