Marist Poll: Three Key States 'Embarrassed,' Turn on Trump

First signs of Trump support fading in Rust Belt battleground states new poll

According to NBC News, the polls also found Trump's job approval rating in those states to be below 40%.

Trump carried the trio of states in the 2016 presidential election by a total of 80,000 votes and became the first Republican to carry them since the 1980s.

In addition, Democrats enjoy double-digit leads in MI and Pennsylvania on the question of which party voters prefer to control Congress after the 2018 midterms, and they hold an 8-point advantage in Wisconsin.

A new group of polls show President Trump's favorability rating has fallen below 40 percent in three key states that helped him win the White House in 2016. Only 41 percent of Wisconsin voters indicated that the USA economy has strengthened by Trump's decision as president.

Six out of 10 voters in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin say they feel embarrassed by Trump's conduct as president, according to three new NBC News/Marist polls. In Michigan, nearly half-48 percent-of voters say they would prefer a Democratically controlled Congress, compared to 35 percent who want it to stay in Republican hands.

Trump's performance as president has been embarrassing to almost two-thirds of those polled in each state.

Wisconsin: 56 percent disapprove, including 42 percent strongly, compared to 34 percent approval (17 percent strongly). The margin is 45-to-38 percent in Pennsylvania and 41-to-41% in Wisconsin.

Just 25 percent of voters in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin said Trump's conduct made them feel proud, while 28 percent of voters surveyed in MI said they were proud of Trump. Some 60% of voters in all three states said they believe the US' role on the worldwide stage has been weakened by Trump. All polls had a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points.

Ahead of next year's midterm elections, the polls show that 48 percent of MI voters prefer a Democratic-controlled Congress, versus 35 percent who prefer a Republican-controlled one. In Pennsylvania, Democrats led with 47 percent.
