The Republican Party's approval has slightly increased but remains underwater at 43-57 percent. But the Democratic Party's numbers have seen an uptick since the November midterms to 46-54 percent, or the same approval rating as Trump.

Several weeks after the Nov. 6 elections, a majority of voters - 67 percent - are satisfied with the outcome of the midterms.

Among Democrats, an overwhelming 79 percent are satisfied, while 58 percent of Republicans are happy with the outcome of the midterms.

Next year Democrats will hold the House majority for the first time since 2010, having flipped at least 40 seats. Meanwhile, Republicans slightly expanded their Senate majority to 53-47 seats.

"Voters generally were satisfied with the outcome of the elections as they got the divided Congress they wanted that gave Democrats more power but also showed advantages to the Republicans in the Senate," Penn said.

Democrats ran heavily on health care and coverage protections for those with pre-existing conditions as a wedge issue that helped deliver the party the House majority.

Meanwhile, Republicans mirrored much of Trump's rhetoric on immigration, a move that energized base voters in many red states that were home to the most competitive Senate races. Republicans defeated three Democrats, but also lost two Senate seats in Arizona and Nevada.

When Democrats are voting for Speaker of the House, only 33 percent believe Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) should reclaim the gavel, while 67 percent want a new leader.

The Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll online survey of 1,407 registered voters was conducted November 27 to 28.

The Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll is a collaboration of the Center for American Political Studies at Harvard University and The Harris Poll. The Hill will be working with Harvard/Harris Poll throughout 2018.

Full poll results will be posted online later this week. The Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll survey is an online sample drawn from the Harris Panel and weighted to reflect known demographics. As a representative online sample, it does not report a probability confidence interval.
