Trump’s Approval Rating Just Dropped 10 Points: Gallup Poll

Published

President Donald Trump’s job approval rating plunged 10 points in the latest Gallup poll amid massive protests over the death of George Floyd and the administration disastrous handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

The survey found that 39 percent of Americans now approve of the job Trump is doing, a significant drop from the president’s personal high of 49 percent achieved in May.

Trump’s job approval rating is down 7 points among Republicans to 85 percent, the lowest point for the president within his own party in almost two years. Trump is also down 7 points among independents to 39 percent. Only 5 percent of Democrats approve of the job Trump is doing.

Trump joins former Presidents George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter as the only incumbents on record to have approval ratings in the 30 percent range in June of an election year. Both Bush and Carter lost their reelection bids.
