Donald Trump’s Approval Ratings Is Sinking To Its Lowest In Almost Every Poll

President Donald Trump’s approval ratings are hitting their lowest point in six months. The new numbers may put Republicans’ hopes of holding the House in jeopardy.

According to Eight polling entities — ABC News/Washington Post, CNN, Gallup, IBD/TIPP, the Kaiser Family Foundation, Quinnipiac University, Grinnell College/Selzer & Co, and Suffolk University — the president has an average approval rating of 38 percent, a drop of 3 points from Trump’s previous approval polling average, 41 percent.

Unlike other polling services, Only Rasmussen gives the president a total approval rating above 45 per cent. Rasmussen polls likely voters using automated calls made to landlines. This means those polled tend to be older and more likely to vote for the GOP.

The Trump presidency is now besieged by controversies, including an anonymous New York Times op-ed from a senior White House staffer and a new book by Watergate reporter Bob Woodward that depicts abject chaos in the White House. These controversies are happening just a week after former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort was convicted on financial fraud charges and Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen, pleaded guilty to eight federal crimes.

The administration is having a difficult time trying to make the case for its own successes to the American populace as it has failed to nominate a popular supreme court nominee.

The new polling numbers now give Democrats a 78 percent chance of winning back the House this fall.
