Just 41 percent of Republicans are satisfied with how things are going in the country, down 17 points since the last survey in May, according to the latest Gallup poll released Thursday.
It's the lowest level of satisfaction among Republicans since President Donald Trump took office, according to Gallup. The 58 percent of Republicans satisfied in May was the highest level since Trump assumed the White House.
The results, according to Gallup:
- Satisfaction among all surveyed is at 24 percent, down 7 points.
- Satisfaction among Independents is at 23 percent, down 3 points.
- 24 percent is the lowest level of satisfaction since July 2016.
"Though certainly not welcome news to a White House in its infancy, the drop in satisfaction with the country's direction is by no means a death knell to public views of Trump's leadership," Gallup's Justin McCarthy posits.
"Satisfaction was at about this level at this point in Clinton's first term, and at several points in the presidencies of Trump's two immediate predecessors, satisfaction was well below the current level. History has shown that Americans' dismal views of the country's trajectory can be revived."
Results for this Gallup poll are based on telephone interviews conducted June 7-11 with a random sample of 1,009 adults, aged 18 and older, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. The margin of sampling error is +/- 4 percentage points at the 95 percent confidence level.
