Washington Post/ABC News Poll: Donald Trump Approval at 36%, Disapproval at 60%

ABC News and Washington Post released a new poll on Friday that capped a bad week for President Donald Trump with some even worse news: his approval rating has dropped to 36%, down from 40% in April and matching his all time low recorded by the poll.

And perhaps even more troubling for the embattled president is that his disapproval has risen to 60%, a new record for the president.

According to ABC News:

Trump’s average approval rating since taking office is the lowest for any president in modern polling since the 1940s.

Other bits of bad news for Trump found in this poll include:

  • 45% say corruption has increased under Trump
  • 63% support the Mueller investigation
  • 53% believe Trump obstructed justice
  • 49% think impeachment proceedings should be initiated against Trump.

The poll surveyed 1,003 adults from August 26-August 29, which was in the wake of the news that Trump’s former campaign chairman had been found guilty on 8 counts of tax fraud and that his former personal lawyer and fixer, Michael Cohen, had pled guilty to campaign finance violations and implicated Trump as an unnamed co-conspirator.

Some on Twitter cheered the news.
