Trump’s Latest Approval Rating Is His Worst Yet: Poll
Donald Trump seems to get less and less popular as his presidency continues. On Tuesday Trump hit his lowest approval rating since taking office back in January.
According to the latest IBD/TIPP poll, Trump’s approval rating is at an all-time low of 32%, which is five percentage points since the last IBD/TIPP poll.
The poll’s director, Raghavan Mayur, explained the reasons behind Trump’s incredibly low numbers, which includes the mounting Russia investigation, the chaos in the White House and the failure to repeal ObamaCare.
“Despite Americans’ optimism regarding the economy, multiple factors are collectively offsetting the boost that the economy should be giving Trump, and driving down his approval rating,” Mayur said. “Trump’s skirmish with Attorney General [Jeff] Sessions did not go well with many conservatives, and former communications director Anthony Scaramucci’s vulgar exchange with a reporter upset many. On top of this, the daily dose of insinuations from the media regarding collusion with Russia also help to explain the low approval rating.”
Trump’s numbers aren’t just going down from the Democratic side, but Republicans are also turning their back on Trump. From the 83% of Republicans who approved of him last month, only 71% stand with him now.
The latest IBD/TIPP pol questioned 904 people and was conducted from July 28 to Aug. 5. It has a margin of error of 3.3 percentage points.
