In the wake of reports that Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin has fallen from President Trump's good graces, a new poll, conducted by the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, reveals that only 24% of post-9/11 veterans surveyed approve of Shulkin's performance.

Why it matters: The poll shows that it's not just right-wing veterans groups like Concerned Veterans for America that are turning against Shulkin after an Inspector General report found he misused government funds — this is a moderate organization whose members are losing faith in him.
