The survey has a 2.9 point margin of error.

The survey showed Trump with a steady 43 percent approval rating and his disapproval at 48 percent, down 1 point since last month.

It also found a gender gap among approval of the president, with 47 percent of male respondents approving and 47 percent disapproving, compared to 49 percent disapproval among female respondents and 39 percent approval.

Several other national polls have Trump trailing Biden, who has led most polls of the crowded Democratic primary field ahead of the first debates this Wednesday and Thursday. Other polling has also indicated Biden leads Trump in several key states, including internal polling by a firm Trump’s reelection campaign severed ties with after it was leaked to the media earlier this month.
