President Donald Trump’s approval rating in the Midwest has been on the decline since last December, according to a series of polls from The Hill-HarrisX.
Last October and December, Trump’s approval rating in the Midwest reached a high of 54 percent, with 53 percent disapproving. However, the latest poll, which was taken in February, showed his approval rating down to 40 percent in the Midwest, with 60 percent disapproving of his job performance.
The Midwest states include: Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota
"When it gets down to it, the president is going to get re-elected or defeated on a state-by-state basis," Chris Wilson, WPA Intelligence’s chief strategist, said on Hill.tv on Wednesday. "So the numbers I'm most concerned about are those in states like Michigan, and Pennsylvania, and Iowa, and Wisconsin. States that he won last time that Republicans hadn't won in a long time."
The polls also show that Trump’s approval rating is down in the South, falling from 52 percent approval in July to 46 percent in February, and going from 48 percent disapproval to 54 percent.
The Southern states include: Delaware, Washington, D.C., Florida, Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi, Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas.
HarrisX polled about 1,000 registered voters for each poll, using statistically representative samples, and each has a margin of error of +/- 3.1 percentage points.
