Trump's approval rate at all-time low; slip in support among base

Trump's approval rate at all-time low; slip in support among base

Fewer voters, 29 percent, say Trump's staff serves him well, compared with 39 percent who say his staff doesn't serve him well.

According to FiveThirtyEight's calculations, an average of the most recent polls show that his strong disapproval rating has increased more than 3 percent from May - from 44.1 percent to 47.4 percent.

"The new Rasmussen Poll, one of the most accurate in the 2016 Election, just out with a Trump 50% Approval Rating", Trump tweeted out.

Trump's approval among some groups, like Democrats and non-whites, has been in the basement for his entire presidency.

Just 33% of American voters approve of how President Donald Trump is performing as president, a new Quinnipiac University poll has found.

Voting opinions on Trump's qualities like honesty, leadership and intelligence also hit new lows.

Sixty-eight percent of respondents said they thought transgender people should be allowed to serve in the armed forces.




"Profound embarrassment over his performance in office and deepening concern over his levelheadedness have to raise the biggest red flags", he said. He fared slightly better in the Morning Consult/Politico survey, which shows that 53 percent of registered voters disapprove and 42 percent approve of his job in the White House. In late June, 84% of Republicans approved of Trump's performance - now, 76% of Republicans say the same.

It may come as no surprise that Democrats are largely against Trump.

The president has repeatedly broken records for low approval ratings in his first several months in office, and hasn't appeared to experience the traditional honeymoon period many new presidents are afforded.

Republican voters remained the only demographic group opposed to allowing transgender people in the military. What's more, 55% of voters in military households said transgender people should be able to serve.

"Voters say a soldier is a soldier, no matter what his/her gender identity is", Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac poll, said in a statement released with the survey results.

The poll surveyed 1,125 voters around the country from July 27 to August 1.
