Trump's approval rating is sinking to unthinkable levels in places you'd never expect

  • President Donald Trump's polling numbers are not looking good among several demographics where his numbers were formerly much higher.
  • Polling in Iowa, Alabama, and of Fox News viewers showed plummeting approval.


President Donald Trump has received in recent days a wave of new, underwhelming polling numbers — many of which have come from unexpected places.

Take for example a Suffolk University poll from earlier this week. It found that Trump's favorability rating among Fox News viewers was 58% — a substantial drop from the outlet's June and October surveys, which found Trump's favorability among Fox News viewers to be 90% and 74%, respectively.

Meanwhile, in Alabama, where Democrat Doug Jones on Tuesday defeated embattled Republican Roy Moore, exit polls found that Alabama voters had a split opinion of the president. In a state he carried by nearly 30 points over 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, just 48% of Alabama voters approved of Trump. Meanwhile, 48% of Alabama voters disapproved of the job the president is doing.

And in Iowa, where Trump beat Clinton by roughly 9 points last fall, a Wednesday poll from The Des Moines Register/Mediacom found that 60% of Iowans disapprove of the job Trump is doing. Just 35% approve, a sharp drop from his 43% approval in the poll's July edition.

The polls come as Trump's national approval rating reached a presidential low in Wednesday's Monmouth University survey. Trump's approval hit 32% in that poll, with 56% of respondents disapproving of the job he is doing. Previously, his low in the poll was a 39% approval rating and a 53% disapproval rating.
