In a new NBC/PBS News Hour/Marist poll released on Friday, Trump’s own approval rating sunk to the lowest it has been throughout his presidency. Those polled who either strongly or somewhat approved of Trump’s presidency made up only 40 percent while those who somewhat or strongly disapproved of Trump’s presidency reached 58 percent. The results of their poll matches those in a Gallup poll, one of who found that 41 percent approve of Trump while 57 do not.
According to CNN:
The average president has seen his approval rating shift by just 3 points from now until the election. That would only get Trump into the mid 40s at best. Trump’s approval rating was similar during the 2018 midterms, when his party lost control of the House.
The number of voters who disapprove of the job President Trump is doing has hit a record high of 58%, a new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll finds.
Meanwhile, Joe Biden leads Trump by 8 percentage points, 52% to 44%. https://t.co/5L7sPb1U6D
