Poll: Trump’s Approval Rating Plummets

President Donald Trump’s approval rating has plummeted to an all-time low in a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, with just 38 percent of Americans approving of the president’s job performance. According to NBC, the number marks “lowest in modern times for a president at this stage of his presidency.” Trump’s best numbers in the poll, however, come on the issues of the economy and the recent hurricanes. Nearly 50 percent of Americans approve of how Trump handled Hurricanes Harvey and Irma on the U.S. mainland, while 42 percent said they approve of his handling of the economy. The poll signals that Republicans as a group might be in trouble heading into the 2018 midterm elections, with 48 percent of voters supporting a Democrat-controlled Congress and 41 percent backing a GOP-led Congress.
