The poll found that 55.6 percent of respondents view Trump unfavorably, compared to 37.4 percent who view him favorably.


In comparison, 47.6 percent of those surveyed held an unfavorable view of Pelosi, compared to 38.7 percent who held a favorable view of the Speaker.

AJC surveyed 702 registered voters between Jan. 7 and 17. The margin of error is 3.7 percentage points for the sample.

The poll comes amid a furious fight over the partial government shutdown between Trump and Pelosi, the two most powerful political leaders in Washington.

Pelosi on Wednesday urged Trump to postpone his State of the Union address because of the shutdown, which appeared to prompt the president to effectively cancel a congressional delegation to Afghanistan led by Pelosi by depriving her of a military plane.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution poll also found that newly-elected Gov. Brian Kemp (R) only has an approval rating of 37.2 percent, with just a third of women respondents approving of him and just 10 percent of black voters polled.

Stacey Abrams (D), who lost to Kemp in the gubernatorial election, had positive views from 51.9 percent of respondents. Sixty percent of women surveyed, and ninety percent of black voters, approved of Abrams.
