Fewer than 40 percent of Oregon, Washington residents hold positive view of Trump
Solid majorities in Oregon and Washington negatively rate President Donald Trump's job performance, according to the Gallup polling organization.
In Oregon, 38 percent rate Trump positively, compared to 56 percent who give him negative marks. In Washington, the president fares slightly worse, with 36 percent giving a thumbs up and 59 percent in opposition.
These findings were part of a 50-state analysis released by Gallup Monday, July 24, of Trump's job performance. The polling data finds that Oregon and Washington are among 17 states where fewer than 40 percent of adults give Trump positive marks.
Conversely, Trump's approval is above 50 percent in just as many states, demonstrating the sharp geographical divide between supporters and opponents of the president.
Overall, 40 percent of American adults gave him a positive job rating and 54 percent reacted negatively. The margin of error for the national results was 1 percentage point. Gallup said most of the state polls had a margin of error of about 4 percentage points.
