Newly Released Poll: Trump Approval Sinks To Historic Low
Amid an avalanche of bad headlines, president Donald Trump’s approval rating has fallen to a new low as registered voters raise concerns about his judgment and leadership skills.
According to a poll released Friday by Consult/Politico, fifty-three percent disapprove of Trump and forty-one percent approve.
Morning Consult said it is the third time Trump’s approval rating has reached a fresh low this month, falling from 44 percent on May 4 and 42 percent on May 12.
The survey shows that 50 percent do not think Trump is able to serve as commander-in-chief, while 40 percent consider him capable. Fifty-four percent say Trump lacks the judgment to be president, and 34 percent disagree.
Friday’s results additionally found that 77 percent consider Trump arrogant, while 17 percent do not.
Trump’s administration is increasingly consumed by federal investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
Trump on Thursday denounced the appointment of a special counsel to conduct the probe, which includes possible ties between Russia and his election campaign.
“Well, I respect the move, but the entire thing has been a witch hunt,” he said.
