President Trump's job approval rating has rebounded since the release of a summary of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's findings related to Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to a new poll. His disapproval is 52 percent and his unfavorable rating is 55 percent. However, 58 percent approve of the job President Donald Trump is doing when it comes to the economy.

President Donald Trump enthusiastically shared an image of a poll broadcast by Fox Business' Lou Dobbs on Wednesday evening, showing his approval rating "soaring" at 55 percent.

The president shared the Fox graphic with incorrect poll numbers on his Twitter account to his almost 60 million followers, along with the caption: "Great news!"

After more than 10 hours after first posting it, Trump had still not taken down his tweet boasting about the incorrectly reported approval rating.

Finally , he dodged the question of whether the show is hurtling toward the same ending he has planned in the books: "I don't want to spoil my books or the show, so watch both and read the book, and you decide", the author said.

UPDATE: Fox Business issued an on-air correction to the poll on Thursday morning.

"The graphic also showed that 55 percent of the respondents approve of the president, that number is not correct", he said.

As to the question of whether the country is going in the right direction, 74 percent of Republicans said yes it is while 92 percent of Democrats said no.

The "Battleground Poll" surveyed political opinion and civility among registered voters who were likely to vote, between March 31 and April 4 and has been conducted by Republican pollster Ed Goeas of The Tarrance Group and Democratic pollster Celinda Lake of Lake Research Partners since 1991.

Trump often retweets the praise he receives from Dobbs and other Fox News hosts, and he made sure to amplify the graphics used in Wednesday's segment accompanying a screen shot with the message "Great News!" The Labor Department also said the number of people seeking unemployment benefits fell to a 49-year low.
