President Donald Trump’s job approval rating has sunk to the lowest point of his presidency, and nearly half of voters want their vote in the 2018 midterms to be a message for more Democrats in Congress to check Trump and congressional Republicans, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.
Thirty eight percent of Americans say they approve of Trump’s job performance — down five points since September — while 58 percent disapprove, NBC News reported.
Trump’s previous low in approval in the national NBC/WSJ poll was 39 percent back in May.
