Trump Job Approval Plummets In Newly Released NBC Poll
President Trump’s job approval rating dropped below 40 percent in a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.
Thirty-nine percent of respondents now approve of the job the president is doing, compared to 57 percent who disapprove, according to the survey.
The most troublesome number shows that Trump’s support fell across the board, including among Republicans, whites, men, independents, women and Democrats.
Last month, Trump’s job approval stood at 43 percent in the poll.
And it gets worse for Republicans. Pollsters for NBC News and The Wall Street Journal also found Democrats with a 7-point advantage ahead of the midterm elections.
Almost half of voters, 47 percent, want a Democratic-controlled Congress. Forty percent want Republicans to maintain control.
Democrats lead Republicans by 21 points, 57 to 36 percent, among high-interest voters in the new poll.
