Trump gets credit for beliefs and getting things done

Data: SurveyMonkey. Poll Methodology; Chart: Axios Visuals

President Trump is getting higher approval ratings lately for some of his personal traits — including standing up for what he believes in, getting things done and being tough enough for the job, according to a SurveyMonkey analysis of its polls since the start of Trump's presidency.

Between the lines: These personal traits are some of the brightest spots in the polling on his presidency. His improvement on "can get things done" coincides with the passage of the GOP tax cuts, while the others are more recent (and the numbers were flat over time). But one score remains lower than all the others: "honest and trustworthy."

Methodology: This analysis is based on 929,225 interviews of adults nationwide interviewed in SurveyMonkey tracking polls conducted continuously between Feb. 1, 2017 and May 9, 2018. Respondents for these surveys were selected from the nearly 3 million people who take surveys on the SurveyMonkey platform each day. Data were weighted for age, race, sex, education, and geography using the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey to reflect the demographic composition of the United States.

Most American workers place affordability above jobs on the priority list when determining where to live, according to Prudential's Pulse of the American Worker survey conducted in November by Morning Consult.

Why it matters: The high cost of living in job-rich centers holds people back from looking for new opportunities there.

A new Reuters/Ipsos poll released Thursday found that less than half of Americans polled believe Donald Trump, now the third president in U.S. history to be impeached, should be convicted in a Senate trial and removed from office.

Why it matters: The poll, conducted hours after the House charged Trump with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, signifies that voters remain divided on impeachment and found that Wednesday's vote did little to change public opinion.
