The Donald Trump approval rating dropped like a rock in the latest Gallup Daily Tracking Poll. The horrendous news ravaged the Republicans immediately after the release of their much ballyhooed TrumpCare/RyanCare. It all came crashing down in just four pivotal days.
The president’s disapproval rating was 49 percent on March 11th, according to Gallup. Then, the Congressional Budget Office [CBO] came out with its score on TrumpCare/RyanCare. On Monday, the Gallup poll showed just how badly Trump’s disapproval soared up to 55 percent, March 15th. That leaves Trump with a lowly 39% approval rating.
uAlthough Republicans announced TrumpCare/RyanCare earlier, it wasn’t until the news began hitting the headlines that public opinion plummeted. The Republican healthcare program, formally known as the American Care Act, drops 24 million people from any sort of insurance within 10 years. A 60-year-old individual would pay over 60 percent of his or her income to purchase the Republican plan in 2024.
Republicans claim TrumpCare/RyanCare will give people more choices. However, without affordable access to care, it makes no difference. TrumpCare/RyanCare actually is a boon to the top one percent and the insurance industry. It simply returns nearly all people to a time where insurance companies squeezed buyers out of the market.
Only 39 percent of the Gallup polls interviewees approved of Trump. Historically, this president has hit an immovable base of Republican support in the daily Gallup snapshots. This poll offers people an indicator of how a politician and his or her agenda are trending.
Trump was the most unpopular president in memory when he came into office. Since his inauguration, the new president has a record of shooting himself in the foot and undermining any advantages he has gained.
The Gallup polling performs a daily tracking among a designated percentage of Americans who approve or disapprove of the job Donald Trump is doing as president. The margin of error is 3 +/- percentage points. The telephone interviews are of approximately 1,500 adults in the U.S.
Polling began on March 11 on the Gallup Daily Tracking poll. According to this poll, President Trump’s approval rating dropped from 45 percent to 39 percent with a direct correlation to the announcement of TrumpCare.
