Trump’s Approval Rating at Record Low

majority of Americans disapprove of Donald Trump’s presidential performance just over a month after he took office, a new poll has found.
Almost 9 in 10 (88 per cent) Republicans approve of Mr Trump’s performance, however the former real-estate mogul has garnered little support from outside his own party, with 54 per cent of voters disapproving of his actions, the NBC News and SurveyMonkey results showed.

Just eight per cent of Democrats and 30 per cent of independents approve of the US President’s performance so far.

The under 30 bracket largely disapprove of Mr Trump’s job performance at 67 per cent, while 50 per cent of those over 65 years old approve.

Opinions of Mr Trump’s performance vary considerably depending on ethnicity.

A majority of whites approve of the President’s performance, with 51 per cent supporting his actions and 48 per cent disapproving.

However more than three quarters (76 per cent) of black Americans disapprove of Mr Trump’s job performance, with 67 per cent of hispanics and 66 per cent of Asian-Americans also disapproving.

The results also found men were more likely to approve of the Republican leader’s performance in office than women.

It came as Mr Trump’s approval ratings took a nosedive in South Carolina – a state in which the Republican President won with a 14 percentage point margin over Hillary Clinton in the election three months ago.
