"While still low in an absolute sense, Trump's current 44 percent job approval rating is just one point below his personal best recorded his first week in office and this past June after his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, a press release summarizing the poll stated.
As a result, "Republicans' prospects have to be considered a bit brighter than they were a month ago, given the increase in Trump's popularity," the release explained.
Trump's approval rate was 38 percent in mid-September, according to Gallup.
Trump has been actively campaigning on behalf of Republican candidates as the November 6 election approaches, in hopes of maintaining Republican majorities in the Senate and House of Representatives, and bucking a historical trend in which a president’s party loses seats in midterm polls, the release said.
The Gallup poll appeared to confirm conventional wisdom that a Democratic takeover of the House of Representatives remains a distinct possibility with the Senate less likely to fall into Democratic hands, according to the release.
