Key findings from the AP-NORC poll on President Donald Trump
Almost 6 in 10 Americans disapprove of the job Donald Trump is doing as president, according to a new Associated Press-NORC poll. It was conducted amid the collapse of the GOP's health care overhaul.
The McClatchy-Marist poll released on Friday found that 38 percent of registered voters had approved of Trump's performance in office, while 51 percent had expressed their disapproval, down by 3 percentage points since a mid-February poll.
At this point in their presidencies, Barack Obama's approval rating was above 60 percent in Gallup's polling, and George W.
Sixty percent said that they feel embarrassed by Trump while 30 percent said they feel proud and 9 percent said that they are unsure.
"Critics point to Brexit polls, which mostly indicated that staying in the European Union would eke out a narrow victory in the United Kingdom referendum past year, and to the USA state-level polls that failed to indicate President Donald Trump would win in enough key states to take the Electoral College majority and win the presidency", per the Huffington Post. But most oppose surcharges for people who did not previously have coverage (59 percent) and allowing insurers to charge older Americans more than they can now (74 percent).
The poll found that 83 percent of Democrats and 55 percent of independents are not confident in Trump's ability to make deals with Congress - but 79 percent of Republicans are confident. Eleven percent said he should get more support from conservatives and Republicans, 18 percent said he should get more support from liberals and Democrats, and 7 percent said the president should just stick to what he wants.
More than 6 in 10 Americans disapprove of Trump's handling of health care, the worst of seven issues tested in the poll.
