President Donald Trump's job performance approval rating has declined in every state across the course of his presidency, according to a Morning Consult poll released Tuesday.

Even in Wyoming, the state where Trump had his highest approval rating in January, his approval has declined. In January, he was at 63.3 percent approval. In September, his approval rating was 60.5 percent, according to the poll.

Other results from the poll:

  • The largest fall in states where he had majority approval in January was in Arizona, where Trump went from 54.6 percent support in January to 44.2 percent support in September.
  • He also declined in Tennessee, another state where he had majority support, from 61.3 percent support in January to 53.1 percent support in September.
  • The president is least popular in the District of Columbia, where he dropped from 29.9 percent approval in January to 17.4 in September. 
  • Among all voters in the poll, those who "strongly disapprove" of Trump increased from 28 percent in January to 39 percent in September.

Despite the declines, Trump's approval rating remains in the majority in a dozen states, from 60.5 in Wyoming and 59.1 percent in Alabama to 50.9 percent in South Carolina and North Dakota.

The decline in popularity means Trump will have less influence among Republicans, whom he will need to achieve his policy goals, according to political handicapper Stuart Rothenberg in the poll report.

"He wants to have clout, and to the extent that he is deemed to be a drag — an albatross — on Republicans running around the country, it just lessens his influence on Capitol Hill," Rothenberg said.

Another poll showed the president's popularity slipping in rural America, according to a Reuters / Ipsos daily tracking poll.

The Morning Consult survey was conducted in interviews with 472,032 registered voters from Trump's inauguration date, Jan. 20, to Sept. 26, in each state and Washington, D.C.
