Poll Result Finds Trump Loses Ground on Puerto Rico's Response
Donald Trump's job-approval rating is going to the downside, largely because of his administration's relatively weak performance in helping victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico and the feuds that so frequently preoccupy him, according to a new poll.
Former US President Jimmy Carter and First Lady Rosalynn Carter arrive for the Presidential Inauguration of Donald Trump at the US Capitol in Washington, DC, January 20, 2017. Only 42 percent of voters approve of the job Trump is doing while 58 percent disapprove, according to the latest Harris-Harvard poll. That's a decline of 3 points from September when Trump's job-approval rating was 45 percent amid public satisfaction with his administration's response to hurricanes that battered Texas and Florida. However, Trump still gets the support of a stable 80 percent of fellow Republicans who approve of the job he is doing.
