A new national Gallup poll finds that 57% of Americans disapprove of the job Donald Trump is doing as the US President, while only 39% approve.

Iran Press/America: The poll shows that on Trump's birthday, his approval rating has plummeted among all adults as well as voters specifically.

President Donald Trump's job approval rating has fallen to 39% amid nationwide protests about racial injustice. 

It seems quite likely at this point that Trump's approval rating is going to be south of 50% and his net approval rating (approval - disapproval) to be negative when people vote. That should be deeply troubling to Trump, given the strong link between approval ratings and reelection chances.

The latest reading is from a May 28-June 4 poll, conducted as protests occurred throughout the country after the May 25 death of George Floyd. Floyd, a black Minneapolis man, died in police custody after a white officer pressed his knee on Floyd's neck for nearly nine minutes.

Trump's comments and actions in response to the protests last week, including a vow to send U.S. military troops to cities to quell violent protests, were controversial. The administration was widely criticized after police in Washington, D.C., used chemical irritants to disperse peaceful protestors from an area shortly before the president posed for photos in front of a nearby church.

The protests are occurring as the nation continues to deal with the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.
