Historic Split is Emerging Within the Republican Party Over One Issue

Apparently America is even less happy with their president than they were a month ago.

Trump’s approval ratings continue to be extremely low, and now almost two thirds of America is against him and disapproves of the job he is doing while in office. While about 90 percent of Democrats disapprove, it also seems that his own party has turned against him, with a third of Republicans also stating their disapproval.

“Sixty-four percent of respondents in the survey said that they don’t like how the president is handling his office, while just over a third, 35 percent, approve of Trump.”

There are plenty of reasons to disapprove of Trump, and recently things are turning even worse. Amid investigations into Russia, the terrible health care plan, and the decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement, Trump is hard-pressed to find the support of his fellow Americans.

The Hill reports:

Nearly two-thirds of Americans disapprove of the job President Trump is doing in the White House, according to an Associated Press/NORC poll released Thursday.

…The poll also found that 65 percent of Americans believe Trump has little or no respect for the country’s democratic institutions and traditions. Only about 34 percent said they believe he has a great deal or even a fair amount of respect for such institutions.

While that sentiment appeared most common among Democrats and independents — 9 in 10 and 6 in 10, respectively — a third of Republican voters said Trump had little or no respect for democratic institutions in America.

While the president entered the White House with relative unpopularity, the AP noted, his dwindling approval numbers and perceived disrespect for the country’s institutions show mounting challenges for Trump as he seeks to cast himself as a unifying figure.

Trump also faces disapproval in some key policy areas. Sixty-six percent of Americans said they disapprove of Trump’s handling of healthcare. That comes two months after House Republicans passed a measure to repeal and replace parts of the Affordable Care Act. The Senate is hammering out its own healthcare bill.

Nearly as many Americans, 64 percent, disapprove of Trump’s climate change policies. The president announced earlier this month that he would withdraw the U.S. from the 195-nation Paris climate deal and has made a concerted push to undo Obama-era environmental regulations.

Trump just does one terrible thing after another and it is surprising that he can garner any support at all.

America has spoken and no one wants Trump as their president!
