Trump's Approval Rating Stands Below 40 Percent in Three Key Midwest States

Trump's Approval Rating Stands Below 40 Percent in Three Key Midwest States

President Donald Trump is losing his job approval ratings in three crucial USA states that put him at helm in the White House in the wake of a terrorist attack during a demo against white supremacy in Charlottesville, Virginia, a new poll shows.

The three states in question are seen as particularly significant because they were key to Trump's victory as he became the first Republican to win all three of them since 1980s. In Pennsylvania, 54% of voters disapproved of Trump's job performance, and in Wisconsin, 56% said they disapproved.

An NBC News/Marist poll released on Sunday showed that 36% of voters in MI approve of Trump's job performance, while 55% disapprove.

One of the few bright spots in the poll for Trump lies in his handling of the economy, where 44 percent of Americans believe the economy has strengthened based on his decisions, compared to 46 percent who feel that it has weakened under his guardianship.

In all three states, more than six in 10 voters say Trump's conduct as president has embarrassed them, compared to just a quarter who have said it's made them proud.

Trump's performance as president has been embarrassing to almost two-thirds of those polled in each state. In Pennsylvania, it's 45 percent to 38 percent. Each poll has a plus or minus 3.5 percentage point margin of error.

Forty-eight percent of MI voters preferred Democrats.

But the president's standing is much lower when it comes to global affairs: Six in 10 voters in all three states believe the United States' role on the world stage has been weakened under Trump.

Perhaps even more significant is that Democrats enjoy clear advantages when voters are asked who they want to control Congress after the 2018 midterm elections.

In Pennsylvania, Democrats lead preferences by 10 points on congressional preference, 47% to 37%.

The surveys were conducted between August 13-17 following a weekend of violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville that left one counter-protester dead after a vehicle plowed into the group she was demonstrating with at high speed. On Tuesday, the president doubled down on his initial statement, saying "both sides" were to blame and equating the left-wing groups to the white supremacists they came to protest.
