President Donald Trump’s approval rating has dropped by 11 points among Republicans since his 100th day in office, according to a poll by CBS News released Tuesday.

Seventy-two percent of Republican respondents to the poll approved of Trump’s job performance, while just 9 percent of Democratic respondents approved.

That statistic represents an 11-point drop from Trump’s job approval on his 100th day in office, when 83 percent of Republicans approved of his performance (and 10 percent of Democrats did the same).

Overall, 36 percent of respondents approved of the job Trump is doing, in the President’s lowest rating in CBS News polls since his inauguration.

The CBS News poll was conducted by telephone and surveyed 1,117 adults nationwide from June 15–18, with a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.


Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
