President Trump’s approval rating has cratered after he incited a deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, led by a dramatic drop in support among voters of his own party.
A new Pew Research Center poll released Friday found just 29 percent of Americans approve of the job Trump is doing in office, by far the lowest rating he has received during his presidency. More than 2 in 3 Americans, 68 percent, disapprove of his handling of the job.
A majority of voters, 56 percent, say they very strongly disapprove of his job performance.
The rating makes Trump one of the least popular presidents of all time, a nadir comparable to the percentage of Americans who approved of Richard Nixon’s job performance when he resigned from office in disgrace. Just 26 percent of Americans said they approved of Nixon’s job performance when he left office in 1974.
