For the second time this year President Donald Trump's approval rating in North Dakota has fallen below 50%.

As KFGO Radio reports the president, who won the Peace Garden State with sixty percent of the popular vote in 2016, has seen his support here slip considerably.

"According to a poll by Morning Consult, 49% of North Dakotans approve of Trump's performance, while 48% disapprove," writes KFGO. "That's 22 points less than when he assumed office. In May of this year, the same poll showed an approval rating of 48% before rebounding to 51% in June."

In addition the Morning Consult website shows that Mr. Trump's approval has also fallen to an all-time low in South Dakota with a 49% approval rating, 20 points lower from when he took office.

The president's Minnesota approval rating is at 43%.

Morning Consult describes itself as "a global technology company revolutionizing ways to collect, organize, and share survey research data to transform how decisions are made."

A Democratic candidate for president has not carried the state since since Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
