Support for President Trump has dipped below 40 percent in a trio of key states - Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and MI - which propelled him to the White House in 2016.
Trump's favorable rating was 39% in MI, 35% in Wisconsin and 42% in Pennsylvania on Election Day among those who came out to vote, according to exit polls. The poll consisted of 795 MI voters, 773 voters in Pennsylvania, and 801 Wisconsin voters.
On the flip side, 25 percent of Pennsylvania and Wisconsin voters said they were proud of Trump's behavior.
The NBC/Marist poll found 64 percent of Wisconsin residents falling into that category, with just 24 percent saying they were "proud" of his conduct during the past eight months.
In Wisconsin, only 17% of voters strongly approve of Trump.
Fifty-five percent of MI voters and 54 percent of Pennsylvania voters agreed.
But his support is upside-down in regions of the state critical to his victory past year: in Northeast Pennsylvania, 43 percent disapprove and 40 percent approve, and in the western part of the state, 45 percent disapprove and 41 percent approve.
