Only 32% of voters approve of President Trump's job in office and more than half disapprove, according to the latest poll by Monmouth University. This is the lowest popularity score and the highest disapproval score since Trump took office.

Behind the numbers: Women's approval of the President dropped 12 points while disapproval rose 13 points since September, with even Republican women's approval dropping 9 points. The sexual assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein went public in early October, setting off a series of high-profile accusations of sexual misconduct and the #MeToo movement.

Accross party lines:

  • While a majority of Republican women approve of Trump's job in office, they are less likely to give the President a positive rating than their male counterparts (67% to 78%).
  • Only 14% of independent women approve of Trump's presidency — dropping 25 points since September.
  • Only 8% of Democratic men and 7% of Democratic women approve of Donald Trump, which has held steady.

Other highlights:

  • 85% of respondents said they believed that sexual harassment was a very serious or somewhat serious problem in the U.S.
  • Congress also received its lowest approval rating of the administration at 16%, continuing a steady decline in support since the beginning of Trump's presidency.
  • 66% of voters think the country is on the wrong track, although this number is about par for the course for the past three years.

Facebook is rolling out a new policy that will prevent U.S. news publishers with "direct, meaningful ties" to political groups from claiming the news exemption within its political ads authorization process, executives tell Axios.

Why it matters: Since the 2016 election, reporters and researchers have uncovered over 1,200 instances in which political groups use websites disguised as local news outlets to push their point of view to Americans.

Nationalism and authoritarianism threaten the internet's universality

Governments around the world, prompted by nationalism, authoritarianism and other forces, are threatening the notion of a single, universal computer network — long the defining characteristic of the internet.

The big picture: Most countries want the internet and the economic and cultural benefits that come with it. Increasingly, though, they want to add their own rules — the internet with an asterisk, if you will. The question is just how many local rules you can make before the network's universality disappears.
