President Trump is celebrating the one-year anniversary of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s impeachment push with his highest approval rating in a year.

Today’s Rasmussen Reports said Trump’s approval rating is 53%, a height it has reached only three other times since his first month in office when support jumped to nearly 60%.

Ironically, Rasmussen noted, the last time Trump was at 53% was when Pelosi announced that the House would begin impeachment proceedings.

For the past few weeks, Trump has been on a steady climb in Rasmussen’s ratings. In its weekly rating of the presidential race between Trump and Democrat Joe Biden, Trump, for the first time this week, had an edge over Biden, 47%-46%.

At this stage of his reelection campaign, former President Barack Obama had a 49% approval rating in the Rasmussen Daily Presidential Tracking Poll.

The latest details:

  • Trump approval rating 53%.
  • Total disapprove 46%.
  • Strongly approve 44%.
  • Strongly disapprove 40%.
  • Republican approval 83%.
  • Democratic approval 19%.
