President Donald Trump has proven to be a divisive figure in his first six months in office, and Americans' views of how well he's doing his job vary widely across the country.
New polling indicates that while President Donald Trump has received polarized support across the nation, his approval rating remains solid in 17 states.
Trump had a higher approval rating among older Arizonans.
A new Gallup Poll gives the president a 59% approval rating in the state.
Likewise, 34% said they would be upset if Congress impeaches the President, and 34% said they would be upset if Congress does not.
Maryland and California were both slightly higher with a 30 percent rating, while NY and CT gave Trump a 31 percent and 34 percent approval rating, respectively.
President Trump has been criticized over the past six months after some of the lowest Presidential approval ratings in decades.
Trump fared the worst in Vermont, where only 26 percent of respondents approved of his job performance.
He is receiving 43 percent approval in Wisconsin and 42 percent in MI, according to the Gallup numbers.
The remaining states that approved the president by less than 40 percent were California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Virginia and Washington state.
The poll found that 42 percent believe the president ought to be removed from office, with the same percentage believing he should stay.
Surprisingly, those that believe Trump won't finish his first term include 11 percent of Republicans.
The survey, which was conducted with 1,233 adults between July 17 and 19, has a margin of error of 2.8 percentage points.
