More Americans are satisfied with the direction of the country than at any point in the past 12 years, according to a new Gallup poll.

The poll, which was released Monday, shows that 38 percent of respondents are “satisfied with the way things are going," the highest number since 2005.

“The satisfaction rate, which Gallup has measured at least monthly since 2001, has now topped 35% three times this year — a level reached only three times in the previous 12 years (once each in 2006, 2009 and 2016)," the report says.

Gallup noted that the rise in satisfaction over the past two months comes amid a spate of positive economic news, including the shrinking of the unemployment rate and the continuation of an economic expansion.

Republican National Committee spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany said Democrats are "running scared" from the strong economic numbers, because they can see that support for President Trump is growing.

She noted that some recent polls show Trump's approval rating growing among millennials, which she attributed to young people who have been shut out of the job market believing in Trump and Republicans' economic message.

"Democrats need to be scared, because those numbers are guaranteeing him a second term," McEnany said.
