More than 50 percent of Americans approve of how President Donald Trump is handling the economy, which is also appears to be giving the president a boon to his job approval rating, a Monday CNBC poll reports.

Trump’s economic approval rating is 51 percent, rising six points since March, CNBC reports. Monday’s report is the first time since Trump took office that the majority of Americans had a positive view of how he and his administration were running the economy.

CNBC pollsters surveyed 800 adults nationwide, with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points. The poll was conducted from June 16 to June 19.

Trump’s overall approval rating remains below 50 percent. A slim majority of Americans give the president an overall unfavorable rating, ranging from negative 6 to 13 percentage points, depending on the source.

RealClearPolitics polling average has the president at a net-51.1 percentage disapproval rating as of June 21. The president’s approval rating has slowly climbed since mid-December 2017, when over 57 percent of Americans disproved of the president.

The results come amid a great deal of controversy over the administration’s immigration policies. Despite a great deal of public outcry and political posturing over the policies, like the administration’s decision to enforce a law that separates children from their parents that immigrated to the U.S. illegally, Republicans appear to be gaining steam heading into November.

Democrats’ advantage over Republicans has fallen to just 4 percentage points leading into the midterm elections. Some 36 percent of voters CBS surveyed said they want Republicans to maintain control of Congress in 2018, with 40 percent of voters claiming they want Democrats to take back Congress.
