The March numbers are the highest posted by the president since March 2017, when the president's approval rating hit 45 percent.

Of the 42 percent approving, 86 percent were Republicans, five percent Democrats, and 41 percent independents. The poll reports that the 63 percent of the public believes the women who allege that they have had affairs with Donald Trump, while only 21 percent believe the president's denials of these controversial trysts.

President Donald Trump's approval rating has hit 42% according to a new CNN poll, his highest level since his rating started to slide early a year ago. But CNN noted that Trump's current standing is only marginally lower than that recorded for President Ronald Reagan in the early 1980s and President Barack Obama in 2010 in the earliest stages of their two-term presidencies.

The president was given the highest marks - 48 percent approval - for his handling of the economy.

The decreased concern about the threat posed by North Korea comes largely from Republicans and independents - among Democrats, the share calling North Korea an immediate threat is about the same as it was in September - but the shifts on the potential for diplomatic success and the need for military intervention have come across party lines. Majorities say he can not bring the kind of change the country needs (52%) and that he won't unite the country (60%).

About four in 10 come down on each side when asked whether Trump's appointees are more or less likely to bring a fresh perspective to their position and to cut wasteful spending.

The CNN Poll was conducted from March 22-25 among a random national sample of 1,014 adults reached on landlines or cellphones by a live interviewer. The poll has a margin of error of 3.7 percentage points.
