A recent survey conducted by Morning Consult shows that Trump's approval rating has dropped by 19 points. According to NBC, Morning Consult surveyed 472,000 registered voters in all 50 states, from January to September. The survey shows that Trump's approval rating has dropped in every state. In addition, the survey shows that Donald has lost support in states he won by a wide margin in 2016. States that solidly went for Trump in the last election, are beginning to doubt his leadership capabilities. In several states, the majority of the voters disapprove of his performance as President.

Additionally, he has failed to widen his base of support.

Trump’s disapproval rating is growing

Donald Trump's disapproval rating continues to grow. For example, Trump won 61 percent of the vote in Tennessee during the 2016 election. Now, his net approval rating in Tennessee is down 23 points. Fifty-five percent of voters in Michigan said they disapprove of the job Trump is doing. Michigan was a state he won in 2016. Fifty-three percent of voters in Wisconsin say they disapprove of the job Trump is doing. Iowa voters also shared the same numbers as Wisconsin.

Fifty-one percent of voters in Pennsylvania say they disapproved of Trump.

In January 2017, Trump’s job disapproval number was at 39 percent nationally and climbed to 52 percent in September. To put these numbers in perspective, at this time in President Obama’s or President Clinton’s presidencies they did much better. President Obama was at 52 percent and President Clinton was at 47 percent during this time period in their presidencies.

Both President Obama and President Clinton saw Democrats, their own parties, lose in the midterm elections despite having higher numbers than Trump's current numbers. Additionally, Donald's approval numbers have declined in every single state.

Trump might affect midterm elections

In 2018 there will be midterm elections in The United States.

In this election, some members of Congress are up for reelection. Four hundred and thirty-five people, in the House of Representatives, the entire House, are up for reelection in 2018. Currently, there are 240 Republicans in the House, 194 Democrats, and 1 vacancy. The Senate has 100 seats, but not all of them are up for reelection.

There are currently 52 Republicans and 48 Democrats in the Senate. There are 34 seats up for reelection in 2018. Twenty-five of the seats, up for reelection, are held by Democrats, 8 of the seats are held by Republicans. Republicans cannot lose more than two seats or they lose their majority. Currently, pollsters are putting more than two seats in position for Democrats to claim in the 2018 elections.

Vox and CNBC state that Trump’s low approval rating, his inability to pass healthcare and immigration reform, and constant lack of action, has turned voters off. They argue that Trump’s disapproval numbers are along the lines of those Presidents whose party has, historically, lost between 20 to 50 House seats during the midterm election. If Republicans lose 20 to 50 House seats it will be much harder, than it is now, for Trump to implement his agenda. It’s still too early to determine whether Trump’s low approval numbers are indicative of a difficult midterm election for Republicans. However, if the historical data is accurate, and can be applied to the present situation, things don’t look good for Republicans or Trump in 2018.
