Approval of President Trump drops to lowest since inauguration: Reuters/Ipsos poll

By Chris Kahn NEW YORK

Public approval of President Donald Trump has dropped to its lowest level since his inauguration, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Friday, after Trump was accused of mishandling classified information and meddling with an FBI investigation.

The May 14-18 opinion poll found that 38 percent of adults approved of Trump while 56 percent disapproved. The remaining 6 percent had "mixed feelings."

Americans appear to have soured on Trump after a tumultuous week in the White House during which the president fought back a steady drumbeat of critical news reports that ramped up concerns about his administrations ties to Russia.

The week started with revelations that Trump shared highly classified information with Russian diplomats in a private meeting. That was followed by reports that former Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey, whom Trump recently fired, had written memos expressing concerns that the president had pressured him to stop investigating Trump campaign ties to Russia.

15. While I'm not a fan of

the corporate media much of the time, I have been impressed in recent months. It makes the repulsive nature of the Trump threat to democracy a bit better.

4. Does anyone know what his highest approval rating were since he took office?

Between this, his lashing out and the constant news stories --

I would really hate to be on the plane with him right now.

8. Depends on which poll you use

The highest I could find was (surprise!) the Fox News poll from February 11-13 which had him at 48% approve/47% disapprove.
There are some (conservative) Rasmussen Reports Daily Presidential Tracking polls that have had him over 50% for a day or two.

11. Welcome to DU!

Your answer was pretty much what I expected.

This isn;t going well at all.
I am fine with that.

5. 75% of Republicans still approve of him, but

that's down from 85% on April 30. I'm looking forward to a continued downward spiral for Drumpf and the Republican criminal enterprise.

6. In my county, I would guess the Republicans' choice for POTUS

is much higher, which is hard to live with, but I won't back down and move to Santa Fe or Albuquerque from La Luz, New Mexico.

7. Even the right wing pollsters

have Trump under water.
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows that 44% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trumpís job performance. Fifty-six percent (56%) disapprove.

The latest figures include 28% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 46% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -18.

10. Realclearpolitics.com

which is a conservative leaning news aggregator provides an average of all the national polls that are released in a week. This week that includes seven national pollsters: Gallup, Rasmussen, Reuters/Ipsos, Monmouth University, The Economist/YouGov, NBC/Wall Street Journal, and Public Policy Polling (which only polls for Democrats).
Trump's realclearpolitics average is 39.7% approval and 54.7% disapproval for a negative 15 average disapproval rating.

13. I am not sure it is possible to drop below 35 percent. There are too many crazy people

who will never stop liking him.

But 35 percent is low enough to allow us to take back the House and keep Senate races in deep red states competitive.

Most importantly it will allow us to win governorships and state legislatures in advance of redistricting.

14. I thought the lowest it could go was 27%

i.e. the crazification factor, but I guess the crazy spread during That One's presidency.
