Even with the media reporting that President Trump’s base of support is dwindling away, a new poll conducted by Fabrizio-Lee paints a much different picture.
According to the national poll, which has a +/- 2.5 margin of error, conducted early this month of 1,500 self-described or GOP-leaning voters, 75 percent approve of the job President Trump is doing, while only 25 percent disapprove.
“The President has seen some erosion in his job approval, but Republicans in Congress have seen their net job approval plummet by a net of 28 points in about 7 weeks.”-Tony Fabrizio
In the same poll, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who was been taking public shots at Trump, including the recent Senate Leadership Fund digital ad attacking Trump-supported Senate candidate Kelli Ward, saw his approval rating plummet to 27 percent.
Trump recently tweeted his support for Ward in the 2015 Arizona Senate Republican primary race over one of his most outspoken critics, Republican Senators Jeff Flake.
Great to see that Dr. Kelli Ward is running against Flake Jeff Flake, who is WEAK on borders, crime and a non-factor in Senate. He's toxic!
