The decline in approval returns the metric to a level last seen in October, shortly after the House of Representatives launched an impeachment inquiry into Trump’s dealings with the Ukraine government.
Trump’s latest job approval rating fell significantly among all party groups, and by similar margins among each. This includes drops of seven percentage points among Republicans (to 85%) and independents (to 39%), and nine points among Democrats (to 5%).
Republicans’ approval of Trump is the lowest it has been since September 2018 (also 85%).
In related news, Trump was so incensed over a recent CNN poll showing him 14 points (55% – 41%) behind former Vice President Joe Biden, his campaign sent the cable news network a ‘cease and desist’ letter demanding a retraction and apology.
“We stand by our poll,” responded CNN.
The CNN survey found the Donald’s approval rating at 38% and his disapproval rating at 57 percent. That puts Trump on par with former one-term Presidents Jimmy Carter and George H.W. Bush at this point in their presidencies.
An ABC News/Ipsos poll released Friday, 47 percent of Americans approve of Trump’s coronavirus response, while 52 percent of Americans disapprove — a steep drop from the same poll taken just two weeks ago when a whopping 55 percent approved of Trump’s response.
And in Trump’s favorite survey, the Trump-skewing Rasmussen daily tracking poll, his approval rating has dropped four points in a matter of days. The last time Trump was above water in that poll was Feb. 27, when his approval was at 52 percent. But he began this week with a -5 point net unfavorability, and finishes it nine points underwater with 44 percent approving and 53 percent disapproving.
And Reuters polling shows Trump with only 35% approval.
But, hey, Trumpy – go where you get the love.
One of the most accurate polls last time around. But #FakeNews likes to say we’re in the 30’s. They are wrong. Some people think numbers could be in the 50’s. Together, WE will MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! pic.twitter.com/YhrwkdObhP
