Trump voters weigh in as approval rating dips to 36%

OSHKOSH, Wis. — As President Trump marks five months in office Tuesday, he has hit a new low in a CBS News poll.

Only 36 percent of Americans told us they approve of the job he’s doing. Mr. Trump is even losing support among Republicans.

At Two Brothers Restaurant in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, Trump supporters like Ken Schoenike are getting impatient — but not with the president.

“Leave him alone. Let him do what he wants to do. The media is hounding on him constantly. I mean, really?” said Schoenike.

This group of retirees backs Mr. Trump on almost every move he makes, but with one exception, according to Adolf Hendricks.

“I think I would like to see him a little more presidential, perhaps, a little more dignified,” he told CBS News.

Les Talo says enough with the tweets.

“It just gives the Democrats fodder for their daily attacks on him,” Talo said.
