Trump Rating Hits Record Low : Democrats have 15 point edge in generic House vote (Monmouth University Polling Institute, December 13, 2017)

Donald Trump's current job approval rating is the lowest registered in the Monmouth University Poll  since he took office, with the biggest drop coming from independent women. Most voters think that the president has not been successful at moving his agenda through Congress and feel his decision to move the U.S. embassy in Israel will destabilize the Middle East. Monmouth's initial generic House ballot match-up for the 2018 election finds Democrats holding a 15 point advantage over Republicans.

Pres. Trump's current job rating stands at a net negative 32% approve and 56% disapprove. This marks his lowest rating in Monmouth's polling since taking office in January. Prior polls conducted over the course of the past year showed his approval rating ranging from 39% to 43% and his disapproval rating ranging from 46% to 53%.

The decline in Trump's job rating has come much more from women - currently 24% approve to 68% disapprove - than from men - currently 40% to 44%. In September, Trump had a 36%-55% rating among women and a 44%-42% rating among men.

Even Republicans unbothered by his serial sexual assaults, collusion with Putin and obstruction of justice won't be willing to run on a ticket with those kinds of numbers.
