President Trump’s approval rating has hit a new all-time low, with just 32 percent of Americans approving of Trump’s job performance in the latest IBD/TIPP poll.
The president’s approval rating has fallen 5 points since July amid losses in support from key demographics. Fifty-nine percent of respondents say they disapprove of the job he’s doing.
“Despite Americans’ optimism regarding the economy, multiple factors are collectively offsetting the boost that the economy should be giving Trump, and driving down his approval rating,” said the poll’s director, Raghavan Mayur. “Trump’s skirmish with Attorney General [Jeff] Sessions did not go well with many conservatives, and former communications director Anthony Scaramucci’s vulgar exchange with a reporter upset many. On top of this, the daily dose of insinuations from the media regarding collusion with Russia also help to explain the low approval rating.”
Sixty-five percent say they believe Trump’s campaign colluded with Moscow in some form. Those numbers include 64 percent of independents and 30 percent of Republicans.
The poll also revealed that support for Trump among Republicans has fallen to 71 percent, down from 83 percent last month.
Among white males, support for the president has sunk to 44 percent, down 7 points since July.
Respondents were also split on talk of impeachment. Forty-seven percent of respondents said it is acceptable to talk about impeaching Trump, while 50 percent said such discussions are premature. In June, only 32 percent said that impeachment talk was appropriate, while 65 percent called it premature.
Fifty percent said of respondents said it is unacceptable to talk about impeaching Trump, while 47 percent said it was acceptable.
