Trump still rides high in Arkansas, but we're an outlier

The Morning Consultant's monthly polling
shows Donald Trump still enjoys a 10-point net favorable rating in Arkansas, trailing only eight states — Idaho, Wyoming, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Kentucky, Tennessee and West Virginia.

There's good news, though, if you're not a Trump admirer.

In 27 states, a majority of voters gave Trump a disapproval rating, versus only 12 with majority approval ratings.

In the latest data from Morning Consult’s Trump Tracker, which measures the president’s approval rating in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, a record low of 40 percent of voters approved of Trump and a record-high 55 percent disapproved, resulting in the worst monthly net rating of his presidency. The latest data is based on 156,104 surveys conducted Jan. 1-31.

Some quick ideas on that:
