Polls: Voters in 3 Key US States 'Embarrassed' by Trump

President Trump supporters at rally

Trump's low approval in several key states that helped him win the 2016 election mirrored other national polls that show his approval rating slumping just seven months into his presidency.

These three NBC/Marist polls were conducted August 13-17 - after the Aug. 12 unrest and violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, and in the midst of Trump's multiple responses to the events.

All three states were ones in which Trump very narrowly defeated Hillary Clinton a year ago, with less than 80 thousand votes across them ultimately deciding the election. In Wisconsin, only 34 percent of voters approve of Trump's job performance, compared to 36 percent in MI and 35 percent in Pennsylvania.

The New York billionaire's disapproval ratings also exceed 50 percent.

These three states were key in electing Trump to office.

According to GOP strategist Ana Navarro, the president has failed grab the opportunity to unite the already divided nation in the wake of the horrendous attack.

More than 60 percent of voters in all three states say they've been embarrassed by Trump's conduct as president, according to the poll. It's easy to forget that nearly a quarter of Rust Belt voters who ended up pulling the lever for Trump were holding their noses while they did it.

In Pennsylvania, 35 percent approve and 54 percent disapprove, while in Wisconsin, 34 percent give him a thumbs up and 56 percent do not. Only about a quarter said they were proud of him.

The polls also released some positive findings for the Democrats.

Additionally, voters in these swing states expressed a preference for a Democratic-controlled Congress in 2018.

The data shows 64 percent of Wisconsin voters say they've been embarrassed by Trump's conduct as president. Each poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 points.

The NBC/Marist polls were conducted August 13-17 of 795 voters in MI (which has a margin of error of plus-minus 3.5 percentage points), 773 voters in Pennsylvania (plus-minus 3.5 percentage points) and 801 voters in Wisconsin (plus-minus 3.5 percentage points).

Trump won among people who didn't like both candidates by 20 to 30 percentage points in each Rust Belt state.
