The polls vs. Trump
Three recent polls to note on President Trump:
- Monmouth University: 52% disapprove vs. 39% approve
- ABC/Washington Post: 58% disapprove vs. 36% approve
- Bloomberg: 56% disapprove vs. 40% approve
The number to watch: 41% in the Monmouth poll support impeaching the president, compared to 24% for Richard Nixon at the same point of his presidency.
