President Trump is not only losing ground in three key states that helped send him to the White House, but a majority of voters there say he has embarrassed them, new polls say.
The three states in question are seen as particularly significant because they were key to Trump's victory as he became the first Republican to win all three of them since 1980s.
Trump registered just 35 percent support in the poll taken August 8, and released on the same day Heather Heyer was mowed down in Charlottesville, Va. during an "alt-rally" that the president has been widely criticized as being too tepid in his condemnation of. Only 35 percent of Americans approve of the job he's done so far, and 54 percent disapprove of his performance to date.
Asked if Trump's conduct since taking office made them proud or embarrassed, 64 percent of voters in MI and Wisconsin and 63 percent in Pennsylvania say they have been embarrassed, according to NBC News/Marist polls.
Some 34 percent of Wisconsin voters approve of Trump's performance, compared to 56 who disapprove.
Trump's approval rating in all three states has fallen below 40 percent. They surveyed 795 voters in MI, 773 voters in Pennsylvania and 801 voters in Wisconsin.
Just 25 percent of voters in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin said Trump's conduct made them feel proud, while 28 percent of voters surveyed in MI said they were proud of Trump.
In Pennsylvania the number was 63 percent.
This latest poll contrasts slightly with a national poll conducted by Quinnipiac University that showed an uptick in Trump's approval rating.
Asked if Trump's conduct as president made them proud or embarrassed them, 64 percent of voters in MI and Wisconsin say they've been embarrassed, while 63 percent say that in Pennsylvania.
Trump performs better among these states' voters when asked about the economy. And in Wisconsin, it's dead even at 41 percent each.
Collectively, 62 percent of the 1,099 respondents polled agreed the president "decisions overall have weakened the role of the United States on the world stage".
The same poll also showed that Democrats hold an edge over a year before the 2018 midterm elections.
In Pennsylvania, Democrats lead preferences by 10 points on congressional preference, 47% to 37%. The polls included a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points in either direction.
