In a newly released poll conducted by Harvard-Harris, 58 percent of respondents said they disapprove of the job President Trump is doing, while only 42 percent say they approve.
That’s down 3 points from September when the president’s job approval briefly spiked to 45 percent amid widespread praise for the federal government’s response to the hurricanes that battered the Gulf states.
The president gets his lowest marks – 38 percent – on his ability to administer the government.
The Harvard-Harris Poll survey of 2,159 registered voters was conducted between Oct. 14 and Oct. 18.
Since then, Trump has stirred controversy with remarks about Gold Star families and his ongoing criticism of football players who kneel during the national anthem. As Republicans find themselves wracked by intraparty feuds pitting former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), Trump has also faced criticism for his response to a hurricane that devastated Puerto Rico.
And most recently he has come under fire for his response to the attack that left four US soldiers dead in Niger and for attacking the widow of one of the fallen soldiers.
