  • Poll: Trump's favorability rating falls in three key states he won in 2016

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.

Three polls were conducted in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania this past week following last weekend's violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.

"For residents of these three critical electoral states, the reaction to the first round of the Trump presidency is decidedly negative", said Dr.

Indeed, exit polls from the 2016 election showed that about one in five Trump voters nationally cast their ballots for him even though they didn't like him, trust him, think he was qualified or had the temperament to do the job.

Pennsylvania and Wisconsin voters preferred the Democrats too, with Pennsylvanians giving the Dems a 10 point advantage and Wisconsinites giving them an 8 point edge.

The NBC News/Marist poll also found that in all three states, voters prefer a Democrat-controlled Congress to a Republican-controlled Congress. Voters in MI prefer a Democrat-controlled Congress by a margin of 48 to 35, while voters in Wisconsin gave Democrats an 8-point advantage and Pennsylvania voters give them a 10-point advantage.
