President Donald Trump’s disapproval rating has reached an all-time high in the wake of the Chinese coronavirus pandemic and civil unrest sparked by the death of George Floyd, according to a newly-released poll.
The latest NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll shows 58 percent of respondents disapprove of his job performance, while 40 percent approve. When it comes to registered voters, 57 percent stated that they disapprove of the president’s performance, while 41 percent said they support it.
The poll, conducted between June 22-24, comprised of 1,640 respondents, including 1,515 registered voters. The margin of error for respondents is 3.3 percentage points and the margin of error for registered voters is 3.5 percentage points.
The NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll comes as surveys show President Trump’s Democrat presidential opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, leads him in key battleground states such as Michigan and Wisconsin, though by a more narrow margin than failed Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton in 2016.
