A new poll by Quinnipiac University asked how people feel about Donald Trump as a president and as a person. The results, released Wednesday, will probably not make anyone at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue happy.
President Trump's approval rating has dipped back below 40%, a new poll finds https://t.co/erFzfHtGE9 https://t.co/nhHxJoyLG1— CNN (@CNN) 1519246294.0
Trump's job approval rating rose to 40 percent earlier this month, but fell back down to 37 percent. People's opinion of Trump as a person fared even worse, with just 30 percent approving of the president.

With a little under nine months to go before the 2018 midterm elections, where 33 senate seats, 435 seats in the House of Representatives, and 14 state governorships hang in the balance, the Republican Party is running out of time to turn this ship around. It may be time for the GOP to cut ties with the president, unless they want to go down with the ship.
