64 percent in Michigan 'embarrassed' by President Trump

NBC News  Marist

President Donald Trump is losing his job approval ratings in three crucial U.S. states that put him at helm in the White House in the wake of a terrorist attack during a demo against white supremacy in Charlottesville, Virginia, a new poll shows.

And six out of 10 in those three battleground states said Trump's recent conduct has "embarrassed" them, according to the polls taken after the violence at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va. According to NBC News, "the polls show that 48 percent of MI voters prefer a Democratic-controlled Congress, versus 35 percent who prefer a Republican controlled one".

The New York billionaire's disapproval ratings also exceed 50 percent. Some 60% of voters in all three states said they believe the US' role on the worldwide stage has been weakened by 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 how Trump's conduct as president makes them feel, 62 percent of Pennsylvania adults responded that they are "embarrassed", 26 percent said "proud", and 12 percent were unsure. It's easy to forget that nearly a quarter of Rust Belt voters who ended up pulling the lever for Trump were holding their noses while they did it. Only about a quarter said they were proud of him. The NBC/Marist poll is among all registered voters - a group that tends to lean a little more Democratic than the actual electorate because core Democratic groups turn out at slightly lower rates than core Republican groups.

MI voters gave Democrats a 13 point advantage over Republicans when asked who they preferred to control Congress after 2018. It doesn't help him in 2020 or Republicans, who need to retain their control of Congress next year. The margin of error is ±3.5 percentage points in all three states. Michigan's 16 electoral votes went to Trump after he very narrowly defeated former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with 47.5 percent of the vote.

And in Wisconsin, 34-percent approve with 56-percent disapprove.
