It’s been a rough two months for Donald Trump. For the guy who loved to cite polls during his Presidential run, he’s been strangely silent on polls since he took office. And with good reason. His poll numbers stink.
The latest from IBD/TIPP poll:
President Trump’s approval rating has tumbled 11 points since March, according to a new poll released Monday.
Thirty-four percent of Americans approve of Trump’s job performance in the latest Investor’s Business Daily (IBD)/TechnoMetrica Institute of Policy and Politics (TIPP) survey.
Fifty-six percent disprove of Trump’s showing instead, and Monday’s results mark an 11-point drop in Trump’s approval rating since the president’s 45 percent last month in the same poll.
“As his ambitious agenda encounters some obstacles in Congress, President Trump’s approval ratings have declined,” said Raghavan Mayur, president of TechnoMetrica and director of the IBD/TIPP poll.
“For instance, the inability of Congress to pass the proposed healthcare bill has weighed down Americans’ approval of Trump’s overall performance as president,” he added, citing last month’s defeat of the GOP’s American Health Care Act (AHCA).
It explains his attacks on the House Freedom Caucus. He doesn’t want to be seen as the one to blame.
