Hudson Valley Poll: More Americans Than Ever Disapprove of President Trump
A local and national poll looked into President Donald Trump’s response to the violence in Charlottesville and updated his overall approval rating. The results may surprise you.
A new Marist/NPR/PBS News Hour poll conducted on Monday and Tuesday found that most Americans don't think Trump's response to Saturday's violence in Charlottesville, Virginia was strong enough.
The poll found that 52 percent thought Trump’s response wasn’t strong enough; 27 percent said it was strong enough while 21 percent were not sure.
Fifty-nine percent of Republicans thought the reaction was strong enough while just 10 percent of Democrats agreed with Trump's response to the incident.
Another question in the Marist Pool found that Trump’s approval rating is at its lowest point since taking office.
Only 34 percent of Americans gave Trump a positive score; 60 percent, including one in five Republicans, gave him a negative ranking.
Among strong Republicans his job performance rating has dropped from 94 percent in June to 80 percent.
“While Republicans are still largely in Trump’s corner, the cautionary tale for the president lies in the softening of support at his base,” Director of The Marist College Institute for Public Opinion Dr. Lee M. Miringoff said. “Since his numbers among Democrats and independents are weak, a crack among his most ardent supporters is something Trump can ill afford.”
