Trump Approval Ratings Drop Precipitously After Mueller Report Release


President Donald Trump feels safe that, and political observers confident that, impeachment won’t be on the docket any time soon, as the public appetite for it, and their interest in the Mueller report’s eternal life, is waning. But that’s not the only thing waning; it seems just because voters don’t want impeachment doesn’t mean they’re warm to him.

In fact, his approval rating just tied an all-time low, in the latest POLITICO/Morning Consult poll. Trump’s job approval dropped 5% since last week — in other words, since the Mueller Report dropped — hitting his all-time bottom for the poll at just 39%.

The last time it was at 39% was just after the events in, and his remarks about, Charlottesville.

Also interesting from the poll was the question about whether, if the election were today, respondents would vote for Trump or not. Only 24% said they would “definitely vote to re-elect” him. There were 10% who would “probably vote to re-elect,” 8% who would “probably vote for someone else,” and a whopping 49% who would “definitely vote for someone else.”

On the other hand, the number of people who support impeaching the President also tumbled 5%, from 39% in January to 34% now. That’s in line with what Democratic candidates report from the campaign trail and is in line with the sentiment from House Majority Leader Rep. Steny Hoyer, who feels it would be a waste of time with the election looming.
