Donald Trump's Approval Rating Sinks As White Voters, Republicans Withdraw Support

Six in 10 NY voters, including those upstate where Republican President Donald Trump was once popular, now have an unfavorable view of him and 71 percent rate his job performance as poor or fair, according to a poll released Thursday.

Almost two-thirds of Americans think the mainstream press is full of "fake news", according to the latest Harvard-Harris poll.

From April to May, President Trump's approval rating has fallen five points to 40 percent. In their poll, Trump's support among GOP voters had hovered between 84 percent and 87 percent during his tenure in the White House, but in the new survey that fell to 81 percent. Overall, FiveThirtyEight finds that the President's approval rating average among all pollsters is 39.1 percent. Vice President Mike Pence, who had always enjoyed a higher favorability, has also sunk to his lowest approval rating since assuming office.

New polling indicates that President Donald Trump's job approval has dipped to a new low. Moreover, 70 percent expressed disapproval over the way Comey probed Clinton's email scandal. Enrollment statistics by the state elections board show there are 5.8 million enrolled Democrats in NY versus 2.7 million Republicans.


"Mexico is the only country in our survey that is a preferred ally, compared to Russian Federation, among Trump voters - 40 percent-28 percent", the pollster found.

Cuomo has also criticized Republican health care plans, saying they will put services for millions of New Yorkers at risk.

The majority of New Yorkers are also concerned about possible ties between members of the Trump Administration to Russian Federation.

In addition, a majority of those surveyed - 54 percent - disapproved of Trump's decision to abruptly fire James Comey as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, while only 36 percent approved.
