There is a change in the tide. President Donald Trump hits a new approval rating low of 32 percent, according to a Monmouth University poll released on Wednesday. That is the percentage of those polled who believe Trump is doing a good job as president, while 56 percent disapprove. It is the lowest approval rating for Trump since he took office.

Perhaps even more important, the same poll finds that Democrats currently hold a 15-point advantage over Republicans when looking ahead to the 2018 elections.
A 15-point gap. Republicans were freaking out at 7 points. https://t.co/YUCCPqW9ED

The Monmouth poll found that if the 2018 election was held today, 51 percent of registered voters would vote Democratic, and just 36 percent would lean or vote Republican. That 15-point edge over the GOP in next year’s generic House ballot can be all the difference for Democrats to wrestle control of Congress from Republicans.
