As 2017 ends, Donald Trump is in free fall in his approval rating.
CNN has just come up with new figures that show the Trump base is rapidly declining in its support of the person they backed in 2016.
The approval rating overall has dropped to an all time low of 32 percent from a high in February of 39 percent right after Trump’s inauguration.
Republicans have dropped from 84 percent to 76 percent in their support, shocking in the fact it has not dropped much more, and a sign that the GOP might be in its death knell, as many observers have predicted.
Men have declined in support from 45 percent to 40 percent.
Whites support for Trump dropped from 49 percent to 41 percent.
Those over 50 years of age declined in support of Trump from 47 percent to 38 percent.
White Evangelicals, a major part of Trump support, despite the hypocrisy involved, went from 78 percent to 61 percent.
And White Non College support went from 56 percent to 46 percent.
When specific groups of voters have dropped 5 points to 17 points in nine months, that is a danger sign for the future.
Beyond these specific groups, it is clear that women, young voters, suburbanites, college educated, and African Americans, Latinos, and Asian Americans are clearly going over to the Democratic Party, and this is what fueled victories in New Jersey, Virginia, and Alabama.
So the future bodes well for the Democratic Party in the upcoming Congressional and Gubernatorial and state legislative races in November 2018.
