After Sacking Comey, Trump Faces Lowest Approval Ratings Yet

Comey firing has little impact on Trump approval rating: Opinion

His disapproval rating was 54 percent in both surveys.

As with other surveys, partisanship was evident, with 79 percent of Republicans approving of Trump's job performance, mirroring the 79 percent of Democrats who disapprove, the poll revealed.

The Trump administration has been mired in scandal week after week, but the current chaos seems to be having an effect on American voters across party lines - a clear shift from early polling on the reports which showed more partisan reactions.

During his short presidency, President Donald Trump's Gallup poll numbers have been pretty dismal, with his approval rating setting record lows and his disapproval rating setting record highs. And 60 percent of Southwestern Pennsylvania voters (outside of Allegheny County) approve of the president.

The latest Public Policy Polling survey found that almost half (48%) of Americans supported impeachment proceedings for Trump, while just 41% said they would not support them.

The Trump administration found itself in more trouble on Monday night, when The Washington Post claimed in a report that the president shared classified information with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Russia's ambassador to the US, Sergei Kislyak, during a White House meeting last week.

Trump's support remains stronger among GOP voters. Overall, 38 percent of respondents "strongly disapprove" of Trump versus 19 percent who "strongly approve". Amid the constant headline-grabbing statements and actions, the president's approval rating, which has never really been something to brag about, dropped Tuesday below 40 percent to 39.9 percent, according to the weighted average from data-focused website FiveThirtyEight.

79 percent of them still approve of the job he is doing, while only 16 percent disapprove. In general, people surveyed also agreed that corporations don't pay their fair share of taxes, with 59% saying they pay too little. An overwhelming 93 percent said they had read about or heard about the firing, including 56 percent who said they had heard a lot.

The poll was conducted from May 12 to 14 among 2,001 registered voters. Such an outcome would likely not be a popular one, according to the Morning Consult/Politico poll.
