Trump's Approval Rating Continues to Fall, Even Among His Base

President Donald Trump's approval rating has fallen to 38 percent, according to a new CNN poll released late Monday night. In line with previous Trump approval polls, his ratings were lowest among women (30 percent), those aged 18 to 34 (28 percent), and minorities (20 percent).

Trump took to Twitter on Monday evening to attack the latest results as "Fake News."

Indeed, some of the president's staunchest supporters, many of whom have a strong distrust of the media, have questioned the negative report. "If anybody trusts the polls these days, they are just foolish," Mark Meckler, the president of the Convention of States project, told The Hill. "What people like me know is that if the polling shows the base falling away, the polls are false."

But even Republicans appear to be losing faith in the president. Just 59 percent of Republicans said they "strongly approved" of Trump in the CNN poll, down from 73 percent back in February.
