President Trump swept to the presidency by scoring upset victories in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Now, his approval ratings in all three states sit at around 35% according to a new NBC/Marist survey. The polls were conducted after the events in Charlottesville.
- In each of the three states, voters were twice as likely to say Trump has embarrassed them rather than made them proud since taking office.
- Just last month, CNN found approval ratings of 43 (WI) / 43 (PA) / 42 (MI) in the three states.
- In November's election, Trump scored 48 (WI) / 49 (PA) / 48 (MI)
Why it matters: Trump's economic message helped him outperform traditional Republican candidates in these states, and without them he wouldn't be president.
