This poll was taken after Mt Trump’s distracted, then sluggish, then combative response after Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico. Trump was attacking NFL players for expressing their views on police violence. Donald also was making cryptic threats to the leaders in North Korea leaving them confused about US intentions, especially after Trump tweeted that US diplomatic initiatives should be dismissed. Top that all off with Trump’s tax “Reform” Plan that was unashamedly tilted toward Plutocrats like Trump’s own family.
President Trump’s approval rating has sunk to a new low in a new Associated Press/NORC Center for Public Affairs Research survey.
Thirty-two percent of Americans polled said they approved of Trump’s handling of his job in office nine months into his presidency, while 67 percent of those polled said they disapproved.
The president’s approval rating in the poll is down from 42 percent in March and 35 percent in June.
Sixty-four percent of Americans said the president did not understand their needs “not very well” or “not very well at all.”
