His average approval rating at 15 months in office is the lowest on record for any president in polling, dating to the Truman administration.
Some core constituencies for each party expressed tepid interest in turning out to vote in an off-year election, when many eligible voters typically stay home. But many more registered voters are unfavorable toward Trump than favorable, which keeps Trump as more of a vulnerability for the GOP.
He has cut checks to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and other top Democrats in the House and Senate. (This is much less negative than Trump's 57-36 percent unfavorable-favorable score, albeit with a substantially higher share of don't knows.)
