Trump last hit a 50% approval rating on February 27, as he had been hovering around the 47-50 percent range.  

As the Daily Caller's Saagar Enjeti notes, a CNN poll found that Trump's approval rating is at an 11-month high of 42 percent, which was in line with results from the Associated Press.

Methodology via Rasmussen; "Daily tracking results are collected via telephone surveys of 500 likely voters per night and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. To reach those who have abandoned traditional landline telephones, Rasmussen Reports uses an online survey tool to interview randomly selected participants from a demographically diverse panel. The margin of sampling error for the full sample of 1,500 Likely Voters is +/- 2.5 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence."

Trump's base is predictably pleased with the results:

President Trump approval rating: 50%
Disapproval rating: 49%

FYI this is better than Obama's rating at the same time in Obama's presidency.

Trump's 50% approval rating is a slap in the face to all those nevertrumpers who thought that the omnibus bill would be his downfall. At some point you would think the coyote would understand he is never going to get the roadrunner. Beep, beep.

Despite massive pro-Obama propaganda and massive anti-Trump propaganda by #FakeNews @CNN - Trump's approval rating is higher than Obama's was.
It must be hard for CNN to accept the fact that their propaganda doesn't work any more. pic.twitter.com/76Dsp8CAgr
