Even before Republicans attempted and failed to repeal Obamacare, Trump’s approval numbers were in bad shape among millennials. However, four months into his presidency, Trump is seeing his support growing especially among white millennials.

A poll released by Pew Research on Monday showed Trump had a 33 percent approval rating among millennials, a five point bump from February.

White millennials were responsible for much of this growth, who’s support for the President grew by an astonishing 12 points in two months. As of Monday, Trump had a 45 percent approval rating to just 49 percent disapproval.

It’s unknown why Trump has been gaining support among millennials, but it might have to do with the fact that he hasn’t governed as the right-wing dictator that the left characterized him as during the campaign. Good job numbers, keeping his promise at the border without creating a deportation task force, and not creating internment camps for Muslim and gay Americans may have calmed a lot of fears created by the media.

Ironically, while millennials were starting to like Trump, older voters were beginning to dislike him. His approval among the Silent Generation dropped by five points during the same period.

Trump is also improving his support among white women, which changed by six points in his favor.
