Fifty percent of Latino adults approve of the job Donald Trump is doing as president, according to the latest poll from PBS NewsHour, NPR and Marist.

The poll, released Thursday, showed a 19-percent increase in support of the President by Latino voters from early December when they gave the President a 31-percent approval rating. The increase is especially notable as the government shutdown continues due to border wall funding. (RELATED: Trump’s Approval Rating Inches Up In Latest Poll)

When asked “Do you approve or disapprove of the job Donald Trump is doing as president? [And, would you say you strongly approve/disapprove of the job he is doing or just approve/disapprove?]” 29 percent of registered Latino voters said they strongly approve.

This is the highest approval rating among the surveyed demographics — with 26 percent of white voters saying they strongly approve and 3 percent of African American voters saying they strongly approve.

The approval rating for President Donald Trump dipped 3 percentage points, from 42 percent to 39 percent, from December to January. (RELATED: Poll: Trump Approval Rating At All-Time High)
