A new survey from Morning Consult shows President Donald Trump‘s approval ratings have fallen further in Florida than any other state in the country since Trump took office in 2017.
Overall, Trump’s net approval rating in Florida has dropped a total of 24 percentage points in that span.
Trump earned 56 percent approval and 34 percent disapproval among Florida voters upon taking office, for a net approval rating of +22 points. Now, he sits at -2 net approval, with 47 percent of voters approving and 49 percent disapproving.
Those approval numbers remain unchanged since the last version of the Morning Consult poll.
Still, Florida was not necessarily a deciding factor in the race, as Trump was also able to take the trio of Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. Those states gave him enough electoral votes regardless of whether he won Florida.
What’s troubling for Trump is that those three states are also within the top 5 states where Trump’s approval has dipped the most since taking office, according to Morning Consult. Following Florida, Ohio saw the second-biggest drop (-20 net rating since taking office). That was followed by Michigan (-19), Wisconsin (-18), and Pennsylvania (-17).
Should a Democratic challenger be able to grab the right combination of those states in 2020, Trump would lose the Electoral College edge he held in 2016. Trump won the election despite losing the popular vote to Clinton.
