GALLUP POLL: Donald Trump’s Approval Rating Falls From 43% to 40% Since Helsinki Meeting, Net -6%

President Donald Trump’s polls have been on a downward spiral since his disastrous summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, where he sided with the Russian leader over his own intelligence agencies on whether or not Russia meddled with United States elections during the 2016 campaign.

First, we saw last week’s Quinnipiac poll showing Trump falling to 38%.

And now we have the new Gallup poll, which shows Trump losing a net of 6 points in his approval rating since the July 16th Helsinki meeting, dropping to 40% approve and 55% disapprove:

The news comes after Trump recently bragged on Twitter about his numbers in an unspecified poll.

Many Americans aren’t surprised at Gallup’s findings, including Congressman Ted Lieu (D-CA).

Others, however, are aghast that the numbers are so high.

However, Democrats shouldn’t begin popping bottles just yet.
