Trump’s presidency is not recovering

President Trump is vexed by an ongoing Russia probe that is producing criminal indictments and at least one plea bargain. His signature issue, repealing Obamacare, failed. His shuffle of White House staff, a plethora of scandals (even apart from Russia), a slew of inexpert advisers and unfilled jobs, his compulsive lying, his attacks on democratic institutions, and his efforts to whip up racial and ethnic animus are unique in American presidential history. The voters have noticed all this, the latest Post-ABC News poll suggests:

Trump has an approval rating demonstrably lower than any previous chief executive at this point in his presidency over seven decades of polling. Fewer than 4 in 10 Americans — 37 percent — say they approve of the way he is handling his job. … The president’s disapproval rating has reached 59 percent, with 50 percent saying they strongly disapprove of the job he is doing. While little changed since the summer, both represent the worst marks of his presidency. …

Meanwhile, 65 percent say he has accomplished “not much” or “little or nothing.” This is up from 56 percent last spring. Forty-three percent of all Americans give him the lowest possible rating, saying he has accomplished “little or nothing.”

He is regarded by overwhelming margins as dishonest, lacking an understanding of “people like you” and bad at making deals. He is underwater in approval on issues including race relations, health care, the economy and world leadership.

His months of stoking the base have alienated the rest of the country. Few Republicans have abandoned him, but there is evidence there are fewer self-defined Republicans. Apparently,  he has not just put off a majority of the country but chased people out of the GOP
