Trump's approval rating plummets in three key states

Trump's approval rating plummets in three key states

A new group of polls show President Trump's favorability rating has fallen below 40 percent in three key states that helped him win the White House in 2016. They followed the August 12 violence in Charlottesville, Va., and were conducted in the midst of Trump's responses to that unrest. According to NBC News, "the polls show that 48 percent of MI voters prefer a Democratic-controlled Congress, versus 35 percent who prefer a Republican controlled one".

In addition, Democrats enjoy double-digit leads in MI and Pennsylvania on the question of which party voters prefer to control Congress after the 2018 midterms, and they hold an 8-point advantage in Wisconsin.

In Michigan, voters by a 42-to-39 percent margin say the USA economy has been strengthened by Trump's decisions as president.

More than 60 percent of voters in all three states say they've been embarrassed by Trump's conduct as president, according to the poll. Even though voters in all three states seem to narrowly approve of Trump's economic decisions, they are less impressed by how the president has fared in other political arenas.

Asked if Trump's conduct since taking office made them proud or embarrassed, 64 percent of voters in MI and Wisconsin and 63 percent in Pennsylvania say they have been embarrassed, according to NBC News/Marist polls. In Pennsylvania, the rating stood 35 percent approval and 54 percent disapproval, and in Wisconsin, it stood at 34 percent approval and 56 percent disapproval.

In Pennsylvania the number was 63 percent.

In Michigan and Wisconsin, 64 percent of voters shared that sentiment.

The poll found 38 percent of state residents had a favorable view of Democratic U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), who faces reelection next fall, while 53 percent had an unfavorable view of the senator.

A trio of polls released over the weekend did not produce good results for President Donald Trump and showed that controversies plaguing his administration are having adverse effects on the voters who won him the White House.

Trump's low approval numbers in these three key states present an opening for Democrats in 2018, the survey suggests. The margin of error is ±3.5 percentage points in all three states.

Pennsylvania and Wisconsin voters preferred the Democrats too, with Pennsylvanians giving the Dems a 10 point advantage and Wisconsinites giving them an 8 point edge.
