Donald Trump approvals at 37%-58%

Monmouth Poll shows Trump tiny, statistically irrelevant improvement

New Jersey doesn’t like President Donald Trump.

Trump has a lopsided, upside-down 37%-58% approval rating in New Jersey, according to a poll released this morning by the Monmouth University Polling Institute.

Today’s poll shows just a little movement by Trump since April 2018, when a Monmouth Poll showed had him at 34%-61%.

He was at 35%-58% in a July 2017 Monmouth Poll.

The results might not matter much for Trump, who is unlikely to contest New Jersey’s fourteen electoral votes next year in a state that has 938,348 more Democrats than Republicans.

New Jersey has voted Democratic in the last seven presidential elections.  The last time a Republican candidate for president carried New Jersey was George H.W. Bush in 1988.

Trump’s New Jersey numbers could continue to hamper Republican candidates.

Democrats flipped four Republican House seats in 2018, including the ouster of two GOP congressmen.

Republicans are looking to win a special election for the Senate and make gains in the State Assembly in 2019, along with competitive county and municipal races throughout New Jersey.

The Monmouth University Poll was conducted from February 8 to 10, 2019 with 604 New Jersey adult and has a margin of error of +/- 4%.
