Trump’s approval rating is sinking to unthinkable levels in places you’d never expect

World News 0 Comment

President Donald Trump has in recent days received a wave of new, underwhelming polling numbers — many of which have come from unexpected places.

Take, for example, a Suffolk University poll from earlier this week. It found that Trump’s favorability rating among people who said Fox News was their most trusted news source was 58% — a substantial drop from the outlet’s surveys in June (90%) and October (74%).

Meanwhile, in Alabama — where in Tuesday’s special election the Democrat Doug Jones defeated his embattled Republican challenger, Roy Moore — exit polls found that voters had a split opinion of the president.

In a state Trump carried by nearly 30 points over the Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton, in the 2016 presidential election, just 48% of voters say they approve of Trump, and 48% say they disapprove of the job he’s doing.

And in Iowa, where Trump defeated Clinton by roughly 9 points, a Wednesday poll from the Des Moines Register/Mediacom found that 60% of Iowans disapproved of the job Trump is doing. Just 35% say they approve, a sharp drop from his 43% approval in the poll’s July edition.

Trump’s national approval rating reached a record low of 32% in Wednesday’s Monmouth University survey, with 56% of respondents saying they disapprove of the job he’s doing. His previous low in that poll was a 39% approval rating and a 53% disapproval rating.President Donald Trump has in recent days received a wave of new, underwhelming polling numbers — many of which have come from unexpected places.
