The United States is much more divided over President Trump than it was at the beginning of his term, according to Morning Consult data that was updated on Wednesday.

As of June 2018, the 50 states and Washington, D.C., are split nearly down the middle when comparing their approval ratings of Mr. Trump.

Twenty-six had either a majority or plurality disapproval of the president, whereas 23 approved. Two states, Arizona and Utah, were evenly divided.

At the start of Mr. Trump’s term, a vast majority of states had a positive approval rating. A total of 44 states had a majority or plurality of voters in support of the president, whereas only seven states disapproved.

The data was collected and published by Morning Consult, which tracked the flux of the president’s approval ratings in each state on a monthly basis since his inauguration. The margin of error ranges between 1 and 5 percent depending on the state.

The project is conducted by surveying registered voters across the country. Over 1 million responses were used in the report, which was last updated on Wednesday.
