President Donald Trump’s approval rating has fallen to 37% — a new low, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released Wednesday.
Most of his decline is due voters who are considered his “base”. Among Republicans, Trump’a approval rating sank from 91% to 81%, with similar declines among male, and white voters.
“Most alarming for President Donald Trump, the demographic underpinnings of his support, Republicans, white voters, especially men and those without a college degree, are starting to have doubts,” the assistant director of the poll, Tim Malloy, said in a statement. A large majority of those polled — 70%, did not believe Trump’s unsubstantiated claims that President Obama wiretapped his phones during the 2016 election. A claim that Trump still holds to even though there is absolutely no evidence to support it. The poll also reported 73% of voters said Trump and his administration made statements without supporting evidence “very often” or “somewhat often.” Voters also showed increasing doubt in Trump’s honesty and leadership, as 60% of respondents thought Trump was dishonest, compared with 55% in the March 7 poll.Tweet
