President Donald J. Trump’s approval rating has taken a downturn in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, a new poll indicates. After tracking the president’s approval ratings from his inauguration, in January, through September, the survey shows dips and highs.
The new poll, tracked by Morning Consult, surveyed over 470,000 Americans. The site claims a “majority of voters in 25 states and the District of Columbia said they disapprove of the president’s job performance.” It also says, “Trump retains support from a majority of voters in 12 states ranging from the Mountain States to the South.”
From Jan. 20 to Sep. 26, the site interviewed 472,032 registered voters representing every state and D.C. According to the data:
The negative swings in net approval ranged from as high as 30 percentage points in solidly blue Illinois and New York to as low as 11 points in red Louisiana. But in many of the states Trump easily carried last year — such as Tennessee (-23 percentage points), Mississippi (-21 points), Kentucky (-20 points), Kansas (-19 points) and Indiana (-17 points) — voters have soured on the president in 2017.
The Morning Consult survey suggests that in 25 states and the District of Columbia, over half the voters surveyed said they disapprove of President Trump’s job performance. The percentage of voters who disapprove of the president in Michigan is 55 percent, while in Wisconsin and Iowa, that number is 53 percent.
A majority of voters in 12 states which Trump won in 2016 approve of the job he is doing, including Wyoming (60 percent approval) and West Virginia (59 percent approval). His net approval in the 12 states has fallen since January, however.
The president’s overall, net approval rating dropped from January to September, going from 49 percent of voter approval to 43 percent.
Meanwhile, disapproval has risen. In January, the net disapproval rating was at 39 percent, and it was up to 52 percent in September.
