Public Disapproves Of How Trump Is Handling The Issues
This chart reflects the results of a new Economist / YouGov Poll -- done between July 15th and 18th of a random national sample of 1,500 adults (including 1,273 registered voters), with a margin of error of 3 points.
The poll asked respondents if they approved of how Donald Trump is handling 17 issues important to the country. They approved of how he's handling only 2 of the 17 issues -- veterans affairs (by 9 points) and terrorism (by 7 points).
They disapproved of how he's handling the other 15 issues -- women's rights (by 14 points), taxes (by 10 points), Social Security (by 14 points), Medicare (by 16 points), immigration (by 7 points), health care (by 20 points), gun control (by 2 points), LGBT rights (by 15 points), foreign policy (by 13 points), the environment (by 17 points), education (by 11 points), the economy (by 2 points), civil rights (by 10 points), the budget deficit (by 10 points), and abortion (by 11 points).
When you combine these with Trump's overall job approval (in negative double-digits), it is obvious that Trump has no mandate to do anything.
