Donald Trump Job Approval Hits New Low In New Poll
According to the RealClearPolitics average of polls, Trump has a 38 percent job approval rating, a historic low for a first-term president at this point in the term.
President Trump’s job approval rating hit a new low in November and has declined for three months straight, according to the latest Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll.
The survey found that 41 percent approve of the job Trump is doing, compared to 59 percent who disapprove. That’s down from a 45 percent approval in September and the previous low of 42 percent, which Trump hit in October. Trump peaked in the Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll at 49 percent approval in March.
Still, the poll found that Trump’s base is sticking with him – 79 percent of Trump voters approve of the job he is doing. Trump slumps to only 38 percent approval among independents and is almost universally disliked among Democrats.
A majority of voters, 58 percent, say the country is on the wrong track. There is optimism on the economy, however, with 45 percent saying it is on the right track, compared to 37 percent who say it is headed the wrong way.
Trump gets high marks from voters on terrorism, and the economy, but is underwater on immigration, foreign affairs and administering the government.
The survey found the public split on the question of Russian collusion, with 38 percent saying they believe special counsel Robert Mueller has found hard evidence of the Trump campaign colluding with Moscow, 36 percent saying there is no hard evidence and 27 percent saying they don’t know.
