President Donald Trump’s approval rating remains at 50 percent in the counties that propelled him to the presidency in the November 16 elections, the Gateway Pundit reports.
According to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Sunday, the president’s approval rating stood at 50 percent in 439 select counties in 16 states that helped him win over Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.
In the poll, it shows 29 percent strongly approve of Trump’s performance in those counties. Those who disapprove came at 46 percent with 35 percent disapproving strongly.
The people who were polled include Republicans, Democrats and independents.
The 16 states where the poll was conducted are those where Trump took a strong and surprising lead that include Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Ohio, North Carolina, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Georgia, Missouri, Virginia, Colorado, New Hampshire, Maine and Nevada.
President Trump has previously said that polls do not reflect the voting results and the inclusion of illegal immigrants in polling would negatively impact him because of his tough stance on illegals.
