You will notice a significant drop from the 6th-7th of March, declining seven points. This drop has continued for three straight days. The President still enjoys a favorable majority with a 56% overall approval rating.

The real litmus test will be whether or not this trend continues or stabilizes and what actions the administration takes to combat it.
