Trump Approval Rating Is Going Down The Toilet Even In States He Won, New Poll Finds
President Donald Trump’s approval rating hit a record low in March, a newly released poll finds.
Morning Consult’s 50-state approval tracker found that a majority of American voters, 54 percent, disapproved of the president’s job performance. 41 percent approved of Trump’s job performance during March.
The data from March surpasses the president’s previous lows in the Morning Consult poll. In October and November, 42 percent of respondents approved of Trump’s job performance and 53 percent disapproved.
Trump’s approval ratings also dropped month-to-month in a number of states that supported him in the 2016 race, including a 9 percent drop in Iowa and a 6-point dip in Idaho and Tennessee, signaling a troublesome pattern for the GOP ahead of the midterm elections.
The March poll compiles data from surveys conducted from March 1 to 31 among 97,693 registered voters in every state and Washington, D.C.
According to the RealClearPolitics average of polls, Trump has a current approval rating of 41.8 percent.
A majority, 53.3 percent, disapprove of the job Trump is doing in office, according to the average.
