Press coverage and partisan narratives have routinely downplayed the significance and productive outcome of President Trump’s unprecedented meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. American voters, however, appear to have a different impression of the event.

Six out of 10 of them now say Mr. Trump has a “good relationship” with Mr. Kim, according to a Monmouth University poll.

It found that 59 percent of U.S. voters agree the two appear to be on the same page — that includes 66 percent of Republicans, 61 percent of independents and even 50 percent of Democrats.

Less than a fourth of voters — 24 percent — think that the pair have a “bad relationship,” including 17 percent of Republicans, 25 percent of independents and a third of Democrats.

Still, 24 percent say they don’t know what kind of relationship the leaders have; that includes 17 percent of Republicans, 14 percent of independents and 17 percent of Democrats.

The Monmouth University poll of 711 registered U.S. voters was conducted June 12-13.
