It seems that Donald Trump’s base is not as loyal as some thought. A recent Morning Consult/Politico poll shows the reality TV star’s ratings are slipping.
Morning Consult reports, “The foundering came as Trump’s firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey continued to play out on news cycles across the country.”
Among the key findings in the survey was a drop in those who said they ‘strongly’ approve of the job Trump is doing. That number fell from 49 percent to 42 percent.
The Russia scandal also played into Trump’s sinking approval. Prioritizing the Trump-Russia investigation was listed as the issue most important at 27 percent. That beat repealing and replacing Obamacare at 21 percent, passing tax reform and entitlement reform at 14 and 13 percent respectively. Only 11 percent thought infrastructure spending was important to them.
Perhaps not surprisingly, since Americans have to foot the bill for Trump’s border wall, only 6 percent thought that was a worthwhile cause.
The national survey included 2,001 registered voters, with a margin of error of +/- 2 points. It was conducted May 12-14.
Nate Silver’s polling doesn’t paint a better picture for Trump.
Buyers remorse also appears to be setting in with Trump voters. As Ann Werner points out on Liberals Unite,
Trump’s base is deserting him. In the latest PPP Poll released on Tuesday, 49 percent vs. 41 percent of Americans wish that Hillary Clinton had won in the November election. Even worse, 10 percent of Trump voters are experiencing buyer’s remorse and wish they’d voted for “Crooked” Hillary.
Even worse than that, 12 percent of Trump voters are in favor of impeachment. Across the board, 48 percent of Americans support impeachment, while 41 percent reject the idea.
Whether or not Trump’s presidency survives multiple potential criminal investigations, he will still enter the approval ratings history books as a ‘bigly’ loser.
