Daily Beast: President Trump’s approval rating has sunk to 38 percent, according to Gallup’s latest poll, with significant drops even recorded among his most loyal support base: old white men.
After reaching a personal Gallup best of 49 percent in May, Trump’s approval rating slid in June and is now 3 percentage points above his all-time low of 35 percent in 2017.
Trump’s popularity fell sharply among all demographic groups: Midwesterners, women, white college grads, and more. He fell below majority approval among white Americans, men, older Americans, Southerners, and those without a college degree.
Fifty-seven percent of white Americans without a college degree surveyed approved of his performance, a drop from 66 percent recorded from January to May.
The only silver lining: His popularity among Republicans rose from 85 percent to 91 percent. Approval among Democrats sank from 5 to 2 percent, creating the largest partisan gap ever recorded in a Gallup presidential approval poll.

In the new Gallup poll, Trump's approval rating among Republicans increased from 85% to 91%, but declined among independents from 39%-33%. 2% of Democrats approve. The 89-pt gap between R's and D's on POTUS approval is highest ever recorded in the Gallup poll.— Hurt Alison Poole 🏳️🌈 (@RealAlisonPoole) July 6, 2020
