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 👀 

Note, however, that on the question testing Trump against a generic Democrat, Trump only loses 47-43 

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 

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
