Trump is buoyed by a rising approval rate; the latest Emerson poll shows him slightly above water, with 48 percent of registered voters approving of the job he’s doing and 47 percent disapproving. The president held a 43 percent approval rating in the same poll last month.

In another positive sign for the president, Biden, Sanders and Warren all held slim 2-point leads over Trump in October’s poll.

The poll comes as the White House is embroiled in the House’s impeachment investigation into Trump’s dealings with Ukraine. Voters are slightly opposed to impeaching Trump, with 45 percent in opposition and 43 percent in support.

The results, which mark a reversal from October, are largely driven by independents, who supported impeachment by a 48-39 margin last month and now oppose impeachment by a 49-34 margin. 

The Emerson College poll surveyed 1,092 registered voters from Nov. 17-20 and has a margin of error of 2.9 percent.
