Trump's Approval Down By Double Digits Among GOPers Since 100th Day

22 June 2017

President Trump took to Twitter to boast about his poll numbers and progress on his agenda Sunday morning - despite what he says is a "witch hunt" against him.

Trump's approval rating has sunk to historic lows in several recent polls, with most showing it falling below 40% while his disapproval ranking has risen past 50%. Seventy-two percent approve of the job Mr. Trump is doing, a decline of eleven points since April.

In addition, the television network said its poll showed Trump losing support among Republicans. There were points in Barack Obama's presidency when his support among Democrats dipped to a similar level. There is a four percent margin of error for the poll.

After five months in office, much of the president's base is behind him.

The poll also found 40 percent of Republicans now think it is at least somewhat likely the Trump campaign had improper with Russian Federation, up from 25 percent in March.

However, 81 percent said Trump should make no attempt to stop the investigation.

When asked about the goal of the investigations, 32 percent believe it is a political distraction that should be put aside, 27 percent said it's serious but not as serious as other issues and 39 percent called it a critical issue of national security. Trump's disapproval rating was 55.4 percent in the FiveThirtyEight average, which accounts for a poll's quality, sample size and any partisan leanings. Still, for most (including majorities of Republicans and independents), his approach to the issue hasn't caused their view of him to change. The site reported Wednesday that 39.9 percent of Americans approved of the president, while 54.6 percent disapproved. Most Americans who approve of President Trump say the Russian Federation investigation is not serious and they feel the President is being criticized more than his predecessors. Fifty-seven percent of those polled believed Comey compared to 31 percent believing Trump more. Something the president pointed out in a speech the day of former FBI Director James Comey's Senate committee hearing.

"Said Trump, 'out of how many?" joked Meyers.
