President’s Approval Rating at 45 Percent, Disapproval Still Higher

A new Hill-HarrisX poll has shown that President Donald Trump’s approval rating still stands at about 45 percent, while about 55 percent disapprove of the job he is doing.

Among men and women voters there was a wide gap in support for President Trump, with 52 percent of male voters expressing support for him, and only 38 percent of women sharing their view. Support for the President has changed slightly since a similar survey was conducted June 7-8, when 42 percent of female participants and 48 percent of men backed Trump.

Support for Trump was lower among younger voters between the age of 18 and 34, with just 35 percent of them approving of the job Trump does in office. Support among both men and women in this age group was almost identical.

Among voters aged 35 to 49, support was 46 percent, while among those at the age between 50 and 64, support was about 47 percent. Voters who were 65 and older were evenly split in their opinions about the President.

In Hill-HarrisX polling in the past 5 months, Trump’s approval rating has not changed drastically, hovering between 44 and 46 percent. His backers expressed either “strong” support, or have said they “somewhat” support Trump, while opponents mostly voiced “strong” disapproval.

The latest survey found that 41 percent of respondents strongly disapproved of Trump while 14 percent somewhat disapproved. Twenty-five of voters said they strongly approved of Trump and 19 percent a partial approval.

The poll was carried out between June 25 and 26 among 1,000 voters with an accuracy of 95 percent, and a 3.1 percent sampling margin of error.
