President Trump's approval rating now below 40 percent in Wisconsin

Poll: Trump's favorability rating falls in three key states he won in 2016

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.

Asked if Trump's conduct since taking office made them proud or embarrassed, 64 percent of voters in MI and Wisconsin and 63 percent in Pennsylvania say they have been embarrassed, according to NBC News/Marist polls.

MI was a key state that propelled Trump to the presidency, flipping the state from Democrat to Republican for the first time since 1988.

Only 36 percent of MI voters overall approve of Trump, compared to 55 percent who disapprove of the job he's done since taking office.

The New York billionaire's disapproval ratings also exceed 50 percent. Six in ten respondents in the three states also said that the world standing of the US has suffered under Trump.

According to GOP strategist Ana Navarro, the president has failed grab the opportunity to unite the already divided nation in the wake of the horrendous attack.

"Asked if Trump's conduct as president made them proud or embarrassed them, 64 percent of voters in MI and Wisconsin say they've been embarrassed, while 63 percent say that in Pennsylvania".

Yet Trump gets higher marks on the economy in all three states.

Fifty-five percent of MI voters and 54 percent of Pennsylvania voters agreed.

This means one in 10 voters overall in MI and Pennsylvania and one in eight voters in Wisconsin cast their ballots for Trump even though they had an unfavorable view of him. In Michigan, 48% of voters prefer a Democratic-controlled Congress ahead of next year's midterm elections, compared with 35% who prefer a Republican-controlled one.

The poll was conducted starting Sunday, the day after a counter-protester was killed by a Nazi sympathizer in Charlottesville, Virginia, through Thursday, two days after Trump gave a widely-criticized press conference in the lobby of Trump Tower.

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. Post-election analysis shows that Trump won the White House by carrying a combined 80,000 votes from these three areas. The polls included a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points in either direction.
