Donald Trump's approval rating slips to all-time low in new poll



Donald Trump’s approval ratings have plumbed new depths as less than a third of Americans now back his leadership, a poll has suggested.

Just 32 per cent of voters say they approve of the way the billionaire is handling the pressures of the Oval Office, while 67 per cent disapprove, according to a survey by the Associated Press and the NORC Centre for Public Affairs Research.

Less than a fifth – 19 per cent – said they believed the President understood their needs and problems, while only 23 per cent said they thought he was honest.

The findings showed Mr Trump’s approval rating had slipped a full 10 points since March.

The analytics website FiveThirtyEight’s poll tracker showed the President’s average approval rating sitting at about 38 per cent.

More than 60 percent of Americans disapprove of how Mr Trump is handling race relations, foreign policy and immigration.

His stock is falling even among Republicans, AP-NORC’s survey said. In March 80 per cent believed he was doing a good job but this has now slipped to just 67 per cent.

Voters also had a low opinion of Mr Trump’s response to the devastation wrought by Hurricane Maria on Puerto Rico, it was reported this week.

Again only 32 per cent approved of the way he was handling the disaster, AP-NORC found, though 48 per cent had backed his response to earlier hurricane damage in Texas and Florida.

Before a visit to the US territory, Mr Trump lashed out at the mayor of San Juan, Carmen Yulín Cruz. Once on the island he urged officials to say positive things about his administration and threw rolls of paper towels into the crowd at a relief centre.

Whatever Mr Trump’s troubles, Congress was held in even lower regard among those surveyed by AP-NORC.

Only 18 per cent approved of how it was working, with 81 per cent actively disapproving. More than half, or 51 per cent, strongly disapproved.

The gloomy outlook was encapsulated by the proportion of voters who said they were confident the US was headed in the right direction – a mere 24 per cent.

Less than 25% say they think Trump is honest. Only 1 out of four! Prepare for departure, DJT...

...and Sadly 25% still like him. They are the deplorables.

And polls told us the NDP were ahead of the Liberals going into last Canadian Election , and that Hillary Clinton had a lock on the last American Presidential election .

Wrong on both counts.

The federal election polls showed an upswing for the Liberals about a week before the election and the US national polls showed both candidates within 5% of each other.


Why do you have to lie?

Read your own article says pretty much the same as the one above..

The latest figures include 29% who Strongly Approve of the way the president is performing and 45% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -16.

And who cares about polls for a president who is no longer in power? Why don't you include a few more; lets say from GW. Bush and Clinton.
