Donald Trump’s approval rating stands at just 38% in a new Gallup poll. But that’s not the only thing the president should worry about. His support has fallen among Americans that make up his most loyal base of supporters.
According to this new Gallup poll, Trump’s approval ratings among non-Hispanic white Americans, men, older Americans, Southerners, and those without a college degree, has fallen below the majority line.
When Trump’s job approval rating for the past month was compared to the first five months of this year, his approval fell by 9 points among non-Hispanic white Americans (57%-48%) and Americans between ages 50-64 (52%-43%). He’s also underwater among Americans with no college degree, his approval rating fell by 8 points there to 44 percent. He fell 7 points overall among men (53%-46%), 5 points among Americans living in the south (53%-48%), and 4 points among Americans older than 65 (51%-47%).
Even though his approval rating fell by 9 points among white Americans without a college degree, he’s still above the majority line at 57%.
His popularity fell by double digits among, women (42%-32%), voters between 30-49 (46%-36%), Midwesterners (51%-40%), and voters living in eastern states (40%-27%).
Trump continues to enjoy high favorablity within his party. This latest Gallup poll finds his approval rating in the Republican party be 91 percent, up from 85 percent. However, he’s becoming even more unpopular among independents, he fell 6 points to 33 percent. Among Democrats Trump has a 2% favorability rating.
The current 89-point difference between Republicans’ and Democrats’ ratings of Trump is the largest partisan gap Gallup has ever measured for a presidential approval rating in a single survey, according to the pollster.
