Only 39 percent of likely U.S. voters approve of the way President Donald Trump is doing his job, according to a Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll released Monday.
The latest findings mark the first time Trump’s overall approval rating has slipped below 40 percent in Rasmussen Reports tracking.
According to the poll:
- 39 percent approve of President Trump’s job performance, while 61 percent disapprove
- 26 percent strongly approve of how Trump is performing, while 49 percent strongly disagree
- 67 percent of likely GOP voters believe Republicans in Congress have lost touch with GOP voters in the past several years, up from 51 percent in February
- 44 percent of Democrats say the same about their leaders, up from 36 percent
- Voters are evenly divided over President Trump’s decision to prohibit from military service those who want to live openly as the opposite sex
- Most Americans still say their health hasn't changed in recent years, but nearly half say they are paying more for health care.
Daily tracking results are collected via telephone surveys of 500 likely voters per night and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. The margin of error is plus or minus 2.5 percentage points with a 95 percent level of confidence.
Rasmussen, founded in 2003 and based in Asbury Park, New Jersey, tracks elections, politics, current events, consumer confidence and business.
