The commander-in-chief’s disapproval rating has hit a high point of 60%, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll out Friday. Only 36% of those polled said they approve of Trump’s job performance.
ABC News noted that Trump’s average approval rating since he entered the White House is the lowest of any modern president since the 1940s.
Trump, however, recently bragged about his popularity among Republicans last by tweeting out an incorrect approval rating.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Over 90% approval rating for your all time favorite (I hope) President within the Republican Party and 52% overall,” Trump tweeted. “This despite all of the made up stories by the Fake News Media trying endlessly to make me look as bad and evil as possible. Look at the real villains please!”
A poll released by The Wall Street Journal and NBC News last week found that Trump had a 44% approval and 52% disapproval rating among general voters.
Friday’s poll found that even among Republicans, only 78% give Trump’s efforts in the White House a thumbs up.
The survey also found that half the public back Congress initiating impeachment proceedings against Trump.
The stunning poll numbers come after a flurry of legal activity in Trump’s inner orbit. Last week, his former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations and implicated the President in a scheme to pay off women alleging affairs.
His former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, was also convicted of tax and bank fraud.
And support for special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation stands at 63%, despite Trump’s attempts to discredit the probe. Fifty-two percent of Americans strongly support the federal inquiry into Russian election interference and possible connections between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.
