Nearly a year after Trump’s inauguration, USC-Dornsife/Los Angeles Times has released its new nationwide poll which reflects declining support for the president and portends trouble for the GOP in the coming midterms.

55 percent of the people polled did not approve of Trump’s performance, compared to 32 percent that did approve. Despite people’s outlook on the economy being fairly rosy, some are reading the poll numbers as predicting that Democrats will take the House in November.
