Trump Job Approval Among Republicans Has Dropped
The chart above is from the daily tracking of Donald Trump's job approval by the Reuters / Ipsos Poll. They survey people each day, and report the results of a five-day rolling average. This latest average of just Republicans involved a five day total of more than 16,400 respondents.
The result showed a significant drop in approval among Republicans from last week to this week. Last week about 82.9% approved, while that dropped to 75.2% this week -- a drop of 7.7 points.
Will the downward trend continue? It might, as more comes out about Trump's Russia connections (not to mention his health care and budget plans). Remember, Republicans were not all Trumpistas. Those who preferred another candidate in the primaries could decide that Trump is hurting their party and abandon him.
We'll just have to wait and see, but I thought you readers might find these numbers interesting.
