The New York Times has assembled a suite of charts that help visualize the data from pollsters Morning Consult, who've been tracking Trump's approval rating every day since he took office as the least popular president in US history.
Trump has declined steeply among groups that already hated him (obviously) but has also lost ground with several groups that were key to his electoral victory, including rural voters, whites, and evangelicals. But Romney voters still love him.
While Mr. Trump’s approval dropped among all groups of people who voted in the 2012 and 2016 presidential elections, he remains popular with his voters as well as those who backed Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee.
