Trump Job Approval Hits New Low of 33% as Ex-Aides IndictedBy
Gallup tracking poll based on average of three prior days
Trump disapproval rating of 62% also reaches all-time high
President Donald Trump’s job approval hit an all-time low of 33 percent as reports swirled this weekend that the special prosecutor investigating collusion in the 2016 campaign had made his first indictments, according to the Gallup daily tracking poll.
The poll was based on interviews conducted Friday through Sunday amid reports late Friday that special prosecutor Robert Mueller would announce at least one indictment on Monday.
Criminal charges were announced Monday against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort; Rick Gates, another Trump campaign official; and George Papadopoulos, a foreign policy adviser on the campaign. The charges indicate that Mueller’s investigation is intensifying.
Disapproval of Trump’s job performance also reached an all-time high of 62 percent in the Gallup poll.
