The gap between Republican and Democratic support for President Donald Trump has widened to a chasm, according to new poll results gauging the president’s approval rating.
While his overall rating stands at 43 percent, compared to 39 percent last month, Gallup found an 86-percentage-point divide between Republican and Democrats — tying the previous record.
The Hill reported that 91 percent of Republicans approve of the job Trump is doing, while a mere 5 percent of Democrats said the same. Among Independents, 38 percent approve of the president.
This is the third time such a gap has been measured during Trump’s presidency, Gallup said, and it also happened once during President Barack Obama’s time in office, right around the 2012 election.
