President Donald Trump has an approval rating of 50 percent or higher in 17 states in the first half of 2017, but in the same number of states, has an approval rating of less than 40 percent, according to a Gallup poll released Monday. 

Trump, who has averaged a 40 percent job approval so far since he entered the White House, had a rating of between 40 and 49 percent in the other 16 states.

Other results of the poll show:

  • The president's highest approval ratings were in West Virginia at 60 percent, North Dakota at 59 percent and South Dakota at 57 percent.
  • His lowest ratings were in Vermont at 26 percent, Massachusetts at 29 percent and both California and Maryland at 30 percent.
  • In the three key Rust Belt states that had not backed a Republican for president since the 1980s and largely gave him his victory in last year's election, Trump is hovering at just slightly above his national average, with 43 percent in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin and 42 percent in Michigan.
  • In two other crucial swing states, his results are mixed, with Florida at only a 42 percent approval rating, but Ohio at 47 percent.

Trump's 38.8 percent job approval during his second quarter in office was the worst in recorded history, with Bill Clinton, at 44 percent, the only other president who fell below 55 percent approval during the same period in his administration.

For the main poll, the results are based on Gallup Daily tracking from Jan. 20 through June 30, including interviews with more than 81,000 adults. At least 220 residents in each state were interviewed during this period.

For results based on the total sample of national adults, the margin of sampling error is plus or minus 1 percentage point at the 95 percent confidence level. Margins of error for individual states are no greater than plus or minus 8 percentage points and are plus or minus 4 percentage points in most states.
