President Donald Trump, who has averaged less than 40% job approval since his inauguration, received approval ratings of 50% or higher in 17 states in the first half of 2017.

A Gallup Poll says West Virginians gave Trump the highest approval rating at 60%.

The results are based on Gallup Daily tracking from Jan. 20 through June 30, including interviews with more than 81,000 U.S. adults.

Gallup interviewed at least 220 residents in each state during this period, including 500 or more in 39 states. Gallup weighted each state sample to ensure it is demographically representative of the adult population.

During the Jan. 20-June 30 time period, residents in West Virginia (60%), North Dakota (59%) and South Dakota (57%) gave Trump his highest approval ratings. Montana, Wyoming and Alabama all had average approval ratings of 55% or higher.

The lowest approval ratings: Vermont 26%; Massachusetts 29%; Maryland 30%; California 30%; New York 31%; Connecticut 34%.
