Hill Note that the reference is a FOX NEWS poll
President Trump and Vice President Pence are facing their lowest approval ratings since the inauguration, according to a new Fox News poll.
More than half of voters, 53 percent, disapprove of the job Trump is doing, compared to just 40 percent who approve. Pence's numbers are slightly higher, with a 42 percent approval rating and 43 percent disapproving.
Those numbers are a significant drop from their ratings in a similar Fox News poll last month. It found that 45 percent of voters approved of Trump's job performance, and 50 percent approved of Pence's.
Could it be some people realize what a terrible bill Republicans AHCA is (aka Trumpcare?) The CBO report came out yesterday and Trumpcare, so far, is truly terrible, heartless and will cause some people to die. Could it be that some more people have actually read Trump's proposed budget and are appalled?
And, incidentally this is hilarious from the Rasmussen poll
what Trump is doing is the equivalent of entering an Olympic diving competition and only reporting the high scores from the judges. It’s not a good representation of how he did overall. In Pollster’s running average, Trump is actually at 39.8 percent approval, worse than the 48 percent he touts. In RealClearPolitics’ average, he does slightly better: 39.9 percent.
There’s a reason that Rasmussen’s numbers are generally higher than other polls. It is not only a Republican-leaning pollster, but it surveys only likely voters, a group that skews more heavily Republican. Since Trump was inaugurated, likely voter polls have shown higher approval ratings for Trump than polls that survey all Americans. Gallup, for example, surveys all adults. In Gallup’s polling, Trump’s at 39 percent.
