How Low Can He Go: Trump Approval Rating Falls To Lowest Level Ever In New Poll

Donald Trump’s approval rating has dropped to its lowest level ever in a Gallup tracking poll. How low can it go? Well, keep in mind that the pollster conducted the survey over a three day period ending Sunday. So, that means that some of those who participated in the poll responded before the Charlottesville murder by a Nazi and before Trump’s failure to call out the group responsible for Heather Hyer’s murder and the 19 others who were injured.

Trump’s approval rating is at a mere 34 percent in the latest Gallup average released Monday. In contrast, 61 percent of adults disapprove of the former reality show star’s performance, which is also a new high.

Trump called out the hate groups on Monday but left out that they marched in his name while trying to intimidate an entire city. Trump denounced the hate groups two days after the attack, but only after a backlash ensued from Democrats and Republicans.

Finally, Trump offered a statement to condemn white supremacists from the White House after he touted the economy.

“Racism is evil and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to what we hold dear as Americans,” Trump said.

As Benjy Sarlin from NBC News pointed out on Twitter, “Trump hits 34%” doesn’t convey the full story. It’s “Trump somehow hits 34% without a recession, a military disaster, a gas crisis, etc”

The Bush presidency ended with a 34 percent approval rating, with 61 percent disapproving.

Trump was gifted with a recovering economy and has even taken credit for that repeatedly. By the end of the year, Trump will be on his own without being able to take credit for Obama’s economy and he won’t be able to blame his predecessor for his f*ck ups. Of course, he’ll try, though.
