NBC and the Wall Street Journal released a Trump approval rating poll yesterday, and it doesn’t look good for the president or the GOP as a whole. Trump’s job-approval rating is 39%, a ranking that George W. Bush didn’t reach until October 2005 (the GOP lost the House and Senate the following year). Barack Obama never reached 39% in their poll—his lowest approval rating was 40% in September 2014. (Democrats lost the Senate later that year after losing the House in 2010.)
But more interesting than Trump’s low approval numbers is exactly who thinks he’s doing a good job: 82% of Republicans, sure. But 7% of Democrats? And 2% of Clinton voters? Personally, I think their take on Trump’s leadership would be fascinating.
