As the one year marker for Donald Trump’s presidency approaches, a new poll shows he holds an anemic 26% approval rating among Jews.
Support for Trump by Jews dipped by 1 percentage point, part of an across-the-board decline in support.
It indicates that Trump has lost backers in all electoral blocs - from liberals to Republicans, evangelicals to atheists - since his inauguration a year ago.
The poll registered a decline in support by Jews for Trump, but it’s less significant that that among many other population groups.
The most significant drop was a 12 percentage point drop among Democratic men and a 10 percentage point fall among Hispanics. For Democratic women, another group that strongly opposed Trump in 2017, the president registered a 2 percentage point drop in approval.
