Donald Trump’s Base Is Shrinking

Nate Silver writes that Trump’s base is shrinking.  The widely repeated meme on the news is that  Trump’sbase — perhaps 35 to 40 percent of the country — won’t abandon him any time soon.  Silver says the theory isn’t supported by the evidence and the base is eroding.


Americans who strongly approve of Trump, from a peak of around 30 percent in February to just 21 or 22 percent of the electorate now.

Voters who strongly disapprove of Trump outnumber those who strongly approve of him by about a 2-to-1 ratio.
