The newest Pew Research Center poll shows that President Donald Trump's approval rating is plummeting among his core demographic groups, particularly... white evangelicals.
It was reported by NPR that a staggering Eighty-one percent of white evangelical voters supported Trump in the 2016 election. Now, according to the Pew poll, Trump’s approval rating among that same group has soured to 17 percent from February to December; that is just within the first eleven months of office.
Though initially impressive that number is definitely a bit of a nosedive.
And that number for that group is definitely a surprise.
And this fall seems to have incited a domino effect as Trump’s approval rating for other past popular demos have taken a hit.
Among other groups polled by Pew a downward trend set in for adults 50 and older where he fell 47 percent to 38 percent, and then among caucasians he bottomed out from 49 percent to 41 percent.
The survey was performed Nov. 29 to Dec. 4 and included over 1500 participants, nationwide, which according to a new HuffPost/YouGov poll serendipitously coincided with Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, pleading guilty to lying to the FBI.
According to a new polls following Flynn’s plea, half of Americans thought the ties between Russia and Trump’s team were... an issue, to say the least.
Truth be told, Trump’s approval ratings have been at record lows from the jump; Pew’s latest survey is no shock to the system.
in the end, Pew's findings show 32 percent of respondents approve of Donald’s job performance while 63 percent do not.
The big surprise is that the hardcore base may be waking up!!!
Response was swift.
He thinks pretending he has a 45% approval rating makes him look awesome— Edan Clay 🌊 (@EdanClay) December 9, 2017
Will he feel awesome if the doctors at Walter Reed next month tell him he has a 45% chance of living through the next year?
In reality RealClearPolitics' average of Trump's approval numbers is 38.4%.
Yay! 👍 https://t.co/Z851XUrGFl
