President Donald Trump’s approval ratings in Georgia are in decline, a poll released Friday by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution shows.

The poll, conducted by the University of Georgia’s School of Public and International Affairs, put the president’s approval rating at 36.7 percent and his disapproval rating at 58.7 percent.

The number of voters who disapprove is up from Jan. 2017, when an Atlanta Journal-Constitution poll found voters split in their opinions of the president.

Trump won Georgia in the 2016 presidential election by 5 points, The Journal-Constitution reported.

"I was a Republican until this last election, but I’m becoming more an independent. I’ve seen some of the good things he’s done — like lowering the corporate taxes — but I don’t like him personally. Not at all. I don’t think he has the stature of a president," said Stuart Siegel, a Georgia retiree, in The Journal-Constitution.

The president remains popular with his supporters. About 85 percent of Georgia voters who voted for Trump in 2016 approve of his work in his first year in office, the report said.

Some residents of the city said Jan. 7 that they remembered insults Trump had said about the city "falling apart."

The poll of 940 voters was conducted from Jan. 3 to Jan. 5 and Sunday through Wednesday, with a margin of error of 3.2 percentage points, the AJC report said.
