Trump's approval rating hits a new low

Protest emerging demanding independent investigation

Comey firing has little impact on Trump approval rating: Opinion

That's the lowest approval rating Morning Consult has measured, and it continued a downward trend for the president.

According to a new poll from Politico and Morning Consult, the president's approval rating now sits at 42 percent - a new low for the Trump administration.

Even more strikingly, twice as many voters "strongly disapprove" of Trump (38 percent) compared to those who strongly approve (19 percent).

At the same time, a poll conducted by Quinnipiac University before Donald Trump fired James Comey showed his approval at a meager 36 percent.

Half of registered voters disapprove of the job Donald Trump is doing as president.

The latest Public Policy Polling survey found that almost half (48%) of Americans supported impeachment proceedings for Trump, while just 41% said they would not support them.

But Madonna wrote this doesn't necessarily mean Trump is shrinking his Pennsylvania base. The Morning Consult/Politico poll found that a plurality of voters, 27 percent, said Congress should consider an investigation into Trump's ties to Russian Federation its top priority.

In his first 114-117 days in the office, Barack Obama was at 64 percent approval, George Bush stood at 56 percent, Bill Clinton had 45 percent, and Trump is at 38 percent.

Perhaps more worrying for the president - and for Republican members of Congress ahead of the 2018 midterm elections - is a declining strength in support among the voters who elected him.

But 77 per cent of surveyed voters said they do expect the president's press secretaries to always tell the truth, compared to 14 per cent who said that is not one of their expectations. The president with the lowest disapproval rating was the Democrat Jimmy Carter at 18.8%. That's incredibly close to his low-point of 39.8 percent that the site calculated in early April.

We can say that thanks to two sets of data.

There was also support for lowering taxes on small businesses - 63% of those surveyed said small businesses should see their tax rate drop to a 15% rate, while just 15% opposed it.

The national poll conducted online interviewed 2,001 registered voters and had a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points.
