Donald Trump's disapproval rating according to @Civiqs polling is 54-43 nationally. It now has him underwater in Texas & Georgia, not to mention Arizona, Iowa, Maine, & North Carolina. All six states have GOP senators up for election in 2020 👀  https://civiqs.com/results/approve_president_trump?uncertainty=true&annotations=true&zoomIn=true&map=true 

Note, however, that on the question testing Trump against a generic Democrat, Trump only loses 47-43  https://civiqs.com/results/trump_reelect?uncertainty=true&annotations=true&zoomIn=true&trendline=true 

A tale of two Americas: @Civiqs Trump approval rating among 18-34 year olds on the left & by age 65+ on the right. If young voters turned out at the same rate as older voters, American politics would look quite different, but youth turnout has long lagged  https://civiqs.com/results/approve_president_trump?uncertainty=true&annotations=true&zoomIn=true&map=true 

What can be done to boost young voter turnout? @hill_charlotte & @JakeMGrumbach have a paper showing how same-day voter registration laws can increase turnout & make the electorate younger overall  https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2019/7/1/1868715/-New-report-finds-same-day-voter-registration-laws-produce-a-sizable-boost-in-voter-turnout
