Trump's approval rating plunges to new low following GOP's health care fiasco

04 August 2017

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

The Quinnipiac poll results also showed that a majority - 54 percent - of American voters say they are embarrassed rather than proud that Trump is their president. This marks a new low for Trump in any of the major polling firms that have been tracking him since his inauguration. Two other daily approval rating pollsters found Trump with a historically-low rating.

The Asbury Park Press wrote, "The Quinnipiac University Poll is considered the gold standard in the business, frequently lauded by USA Today and other national media organizations for its information and accuracy".

60 - 32 percent Republicans disapprove.

That's according to a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll conducted last Thursday through Saturday. Only 2 percent of liberals approve of how Trump is handling his job. "40 percent he is abusing the powers of his office and say 60 - 36 percent that he believes he is above the law".

US President Trump replaces chief of staff Priebus with John Kelly
Mr Kelly is now the secretary of homeland security and Mr Trump tweeted that he "has been a true star of my administration". Scaramucci, despite this week (or - gulp - maybe because of it) is weirdly ascendant in the White House.

Since those polls from over two months ago, the numbers have continued to worsen.

The poll also reflected the deep partisan divide over the Russian Federation investigation that has consumed much of Trump's presidency. The data marked the lowest approval rating that the polling group had recorded for the president since he assumed office. From the poll, it was deduced that voters have a generally low opinion of how the White House is operating.

The July 27 New York City poll found more voters blame Cuomo for poor subways; Cuomo-de Blasio feud hurts city, voters say. It found that 68 percent believe transgenders should be able to serve in the military while 27 percent think they should be banned from doing so.

Because of their stalwart support of Trump, especially as opposed to their college-graduate peers, whites without college degrees (or "blue-collar whites" or "working-class whites") became an obsession during the presidential election.

The May 11 national poll found 21% of USA voters approve of revised GOP health plan; voters reject Trump tax plan nearly 2-1.
