A CNN/ORC International poll has found that only 27 percent of Americans have a “very good” or “good” impression of Donald Trump, while 65 percent have a negative impression.
That’s an increase of 1 percentage point since July.
But among Republicans, only 40 percent of those surveyed had a “good impression” of Trump, compared with 57 percent of Democrats.
A CNN poll earlier this month found that 70 percent of Republican respondents had a good or good impression of Trump.
The poll found that 57 percent viewed Trump unfavorably, compared to 40 percent who viewed him favorably.
“We have seen a spike in negative impressions of Mr. Trump, as he has been subjected to widespread scrutiny and allegations of sexual assault, which are well known and are being examined by the FBI,” said John Bambenek, the pollster for CNN/orchestrated the survey.
“The number of negative impressions is higher than any other presidential candidate and it’s also higher than the numbers in previous years.”
Trump’s negatives have surged in the past month, as a series of sexual harassment claims have rocked the Republican Party and led to investigations and resignations.
His approval rating has dropped to 46 percent, down from a high of 70 percent just weeks ago.
The CNN/Orchestrates poll was conducted July 11-12 among 1,879 adults, including 1,001 Republicans, 1,038 Democrats and 1,016 independents.
The margin of error is 2.7 percentage points.
