The NBC News/Wall Street Journal survey released early Sunday found that 41 percent of respondents said they would either “definitely” or “probably” vote for Trump next year.

Almost half — 48 percent — said they would “definitely” or “probably” vote for the Democratic nominee, pollsters found.


The survey also found that Trump’s job approval rating ticked up 3 points from January, to 46 percent.

Republicans overwhelmingly approve of the job the president is doing, according to the new survey, as do majorities of rural residents, white Americans without college degrees, men and white Americans.

African-Americans, meanwhile, overwhelmingly give the president negative reviews, as do most Latinos, women, Americans between the ages of 18 and 34, white Americans with college degrees and independents, pollsters found.

The NBC/Wall Street Journal poll of 900 adults — conducted Feb. 24-27 — has a margin of error of 3.3 percentage points.
