JUST IN: Trump Numbers Plummet To a Historic Low… Very Low

Engulfed in a firestorm of endless scandals and missteps, Donald Trump finds himself in the midst of his worst extended poll run of his ‘so called’ presidency, a new Gallup poll reveals.

On March 11, 45% of Americans approved of the job Donald Trump was doing in Gallup’s daily tracking poll. It’s been all downhill since then. The latest Gallup track on June 3 put Trump’s job approval at a dismal 34%, the lowest approval rating  of his time in the White House (On March 28, Trump’s job approval was at 35%.)

As CNN reports, the Gallup numbers are no anomaly. A Quinnipiac University poll released in late May put Trump’s job approval at 37%. A Monmouth poll conducted in mid-May put Trump’s job approval at 36%.

Where Trump’s numbers do stand out is compared to his presidential predecessor. President Obama was at 61% in the Gallup tracking poll in early June 2009.

Since 1946, according to Gallup, when a president’s job approval rating is above 50%, the average number of seats his party loses in a midterm election is 14. When a president’s job approval rating is below 50%? Try an average 36-seat loss.

If history holds, Democrats would likely take back control of the House in 2018.

A Democratic-controlled House would be a nightmare for Trump as he tried to begin preparing for his re-election bid in 2020. Not only would he struggle to move his main agenda items through a divided Congress but a Democratic majority would almost certainly aggressively pursue its oversight responsibilities on the Trump administration.

Mark the date: November 6, 2018.
