Trump’s approval rate at new low; slip in support among base: Poll

A little more than six months into his presidency, Donald Trump’s approval rating has fallen to a new low, according to a poll published on Wednesday.

Thirty-three percent of registered voters in the U.S. approve of the job Trump is doing as president, according to the poll conducted by Quinnipiac University, which reports a margin of error or 3.4 percentage points.

The poll’s findings also mark a new high for the president’s disapproval rating, which now stands at 61 percent.

Trump’s approval rating has decreased seven percentage points since Quinnipiac’s previous poll published on June 29. Trumps’s disapproval rating has increased 17 points since January with a similarly sized decrease in undecideds since then.

It may come as no surprise that Democrats are less likely to approve of Trump’s performance in office. Only 2 percent of Democrats say they approve of how Trump is handling his job.

But support among his base has also dipped.

Fifty percent of white voters without a college degree, a group that was instrumental in Trump’s victory in 2016, now disapprove of the president’s job performance. About one in four registered voters in his own party don’t support Trump: His approval among Republicans is down to 76 percent, the poll found.

Fifty-four percent of registered voters say that they are embarrassed to have Trump in office, while 57 percent believe he is abusing his presidential powers. Voters also responded negatively to questions about the president’s personal demeanor, with 71 percent saying he is not level-headed.

Sixty-nine percent also said that Trump should refrain from using his personal Twitter account.

Gallup poll from August 2 shows similar levels of negative sentiment. According to the poll, which has a margin of error of 3 percentage points, 36 percent of U.S. adults approve of the president ‘s job performance while 58 percent disapprove. This matches a previous low in Gallup’s polling of the president’s approval.

Uncle Ben’s Fall

It appears that, for one candidate at least…Things have caught up.

Carson

Ben Carson tumbles in national poll

The retired neurosurgeon plummets 7 points from last month, while Trump solidifies his dominating lead.

Ben Carson took a tumble in the latest national poll, falling 7 points from last month in the Quinnipiac University survey, after weathering heavy criticism for his lack of foreign policy expertise and scrutiny about his personal tale of redemption.

After pulling a virtual tie with Donald Trump in the previous poll, the retired neurosurgeon dropped to third place with 16 percent support among Republican respondents. Trump moved up 3 percentage points to dominate the field at 27 percent.

Also enjoying a bump — Sen. Marco Rubio, who moved up 3 percentage points and into second place with 17 percent support, and Sen. Ted Cruz, who also gained 3 percentage points and tied with Carson at 16 percent. The 3-point hikes for Trump, Rubio and Cruz are all within the poll’s margin of error.

Behind Trump and the triumvirate vying for position behind the Manhattan businessman, no other candidate finished in the double digits.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush earned 5 percent, followed by former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina at 3 percent. No other candidate received more than 2 percent support, and 8 percent of respondents were undecided.

Carson’s dip follows a series of unforced errors, including a flap over his assertion that China is involved in the Syrian conflict and his struggle to answer what nations he would call first to form a coalition against the Islamic State. He also has come under increased scrutiny for the stories he has often retold about his violent childhood and his religious redemption that helped him to become a highly successful pediatric neurosurgeon.

After surging in the early fall, nipping at the heels of Trump and even surpassing him in some polls, Carson appears to be settling back down in some surveys.
