The below described polling includes peoples in swing counties where the republican President Donald Trump eked out a narrow victory. While his base of 35-40% of the population is remaining steady, that is not true for these swing counties.

Here is the rest of the story…

On 5/18/17, Tim Marcin of Newsweek penned the following report, “DONALD TRUMP’S APPROVAL RATING IN SWING COUNTIES AND ELECTION STRONGHOLDS SHOW HOW UNPOPULAR HE IS.”

“The places that loved Donald Trump in the 2016 election have begun to grow wary of the president, a new poll indicated Thursday (5/18/27).”

In March, the 2,500 Trump stronghold counties gave the president a 55 percent approval rating. That fell 4 percentage points to 51 percent in the latest poll.”

“More importantly, Trump’s approval rating has plunged in the so-called swing counties that helped decide the election. There were 300 counties in which the margin between Clinton and Trump was in the single digits, according to Monmouth. In those counties, Trump’s approval rating dropped from 41 percent in March to just 34 percent in the latest poll. ”

“Somewhat predictably, Trump’s approval rating was awful in counties that voted strongly against him in November. In the more than 400 counties that voted against him by 10 or more percentage points, the president’s approval stood at just 28 percent, a 5 percentage-point drop from March.”

The poll sampled 1,002 U.S. adults via telephone interviews from May 12 through May 17. It had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.”

“Trump’s approval rating has continued to fall as the controversies surrounding the White House have piled up, including an ongoing investigation into his campaign’s potential cooperation with Russia meddling in the election, the firing of former FBI Director Comey and the president reportedly divulging classified intelligence to a Russian official in the Oval Office. A Morning Consult/Politico released a poll this week, for instance, found the president’s job approval among voters had hit a new low of 42 percent and that “strong approval” among Trump voters fell 7 percentage points.”

  1. Yay, common sense at last but of course this doesn’t help get rid of him. I’d be interested to know the approval or disapproval rating for the party at the same time which might scare them into taking some action against him before next year’s elections.

  2. Dear David Prosser,

    Now there’s the rub because a lot of the voters described in this blog are not hard core republican voters. While the president’s approval numbers are dropping, his hard core supporters are still between 35-40% of the population. The republican legislators need his supporters to win their elections and this is why their hearts and consciences are frozen solid.
