Americans overwhelmingly disapprove of President Donald Trump and his approval rating has fallen in all 50 states since his inauguration in January, according to a new poll. 
A Morning Consult survey released Tuesday found that Trump’s national job performance has dropped since January. In September, 43 percent of respondents said they approved of the president’s performance, while 52 percent disapproved. In January, 49 percent of voters approved of Trump’s performance, compared to 39 percent who disapproved.
The new poll revealed that in September, a majority of voters in 25 states disapproved of the Republican president’s performance. Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa and Pennsylvania were among those states which Trump carried during the 2016 election.
Furthermore, a little more than half of voters in states of Nevada and Arizona did not favor his performance.
Trump has been accused of mishandling key issues like , economy, immigration, health care and terrorism.
A larger majority of Americans continue to view Trump and the Republican Congress in a negative light now that he has struggled to carry out his agenda, health care in particular.
    On Tuesday, Trump tweeted that he would be using the “power of the pen” to give people great health care since Congress did not act.
    During his election campaign, Trump had also promised to build a wall at the southern border and have Mexico pay for it.
    The poll surveyed people’s opinion about Trump’s competence on the world stage, his effectiveness, the GOP health care plan as well as his handling of building a wall at the southern border.
