Trump Approval Hits New Low

A little over a week ago, President Donald Trump announced on Twitter that the USA military would no longer let transgender people serve in the military, reversing the policy established by former President Barrack Obama.

The July 31 New York City poll found Mayor de Blasio's approval rating plunges; but he still has a big lead over other challengers. That's an increase in disapproval of 6 points since Quinnipiac's last poll in June. But only a third of Republicans think having gays and lesbians in the military affects readiness for the worse, significantly lower than the 48% who say this about transgender people.

A Gallup poll from August 1 shows similar levels of negative sentiment.

The June 8 national poll found Merkel challenges Trump as leader of free world; voters oppose GOP health care bill nearly 4-1.

The Rasmussen poll was conducted between the 30 July and 1 August, and is a fresh blow to the embattled president.

All of that helped push Trump's approval to a record low in this poll.

"Voters say a soldier is a soldier, no matter what his/her gender identity is", Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac poll, said in a statement released with the survey results.
