The Wall Street Journal: Trump’s base is sticking with him, new poll finds

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s political base is sticking with him, according to a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, despite no major legislative victories in Congress after six months in office and an expanding federal probe into potential connections between his campaign and Russian attempts to influence the 2016 election.

In counties Trump won during the presidential election, 50% of adults approve of his job performance while 46% disapprove, the poll of 600 adults taken July 8-12 showed. In a nationwide Journal/NBC survey taken last month, the president had a 40% approval rating, while 55% disapproved.

The new poll showed a significant split between the counties Trump easily won, and those that backed the Republican candidate after voting for President Barack Obama, a Democrat, in 2012.
