SurveyMonkey’s weekly polling (ending Thursday July 6) finds 43 percent of adults nationwide approve of the way Donald Trump is handling his job as president and 55 percent disapprove.That result represents an uptick of two percentage points from the previous week in approval and a 1-point increase in disapproval since last week.
The President’s rating this past week has returned to the middle of the range (40 to 47 percent) tracked by SurveyMonkey since early February.
“Health care” declined 3 percentage points over the past week (from 30 to 27 percent) as the issue selected that matters most to respondents, but remains ahead of “jobs and the economy” (at 24 percent). Concerns about health care have been rising from 17 percent during the early months of Trump’s presidency to the previous high of 30 percent, last week, just after Senate Republicans released their proposed health care bill, Better Care Reconciliation Act or “BRCA.”
