As Trump's approval ratings plummet, we are seeing more and more citizens brazenly speaking out against the president. A full-page anti-Trump ad was recently featured in an issue of the Palm Beach Daily News. The newspaper itself is known to often provide coverage of events occurring at the president's Mar-a-Lago resort.
The size of the ad is eye-catching, but the content of the ad lingers in the minds of the readers. It displays an illustration of Trump being crushed beneath a massive globe. His arms are extended around the globe but to no avail. Below the illustration, the ad states: “Lost the popular vote. Approval rating: Can't get it up. #TooSmallForTheJob.”

According to the Palm Beach Post, the ad was created and pushed into the newspaper by Wareham Place LLC. The firm reportedly paid $6,500 for their spot in the paper.
This ad comes as a slap in the face for Trump, who frequently visits his Mar-a-Lago resort. The fact that Palm Beach Daily News covers events at the resort and is sold there is a deep cut to Trump.
Other entities have also targetted Trump's resort. A newly formed political action committee called Mad Dog PAC has made a notable anti-Trump action. The group placed an “Impeachment Now” billboard along the president's route to Mar-a-Lago.
According to a poll from Quinnipiac University, fifty-three percent of respondents said they disapprove of the way the president is handling his job as the U.S. commander-in-chief. This number is the lowest the figure has been in over a year.
Trump received very poor reviews from those polled on other questions, such as 56 percent saying that he does not have good leadership skills, 64% saying that he is not level-headed, and 53% saying that he does not care about the average American.
According to recent NBC/WSJ polls, only 43% of Americans said that they approve of the president's performance in office.
After Trump snagged himself the 2016 presidential election, he undoubtedly began to slowly forfeit support. Democrats are seeing favorable numbers in the polls and are stealing seats from traditionally conservative areas.
Trump's lewd rhetoric about women and disgusting language when talking about immigrants is catching up with him. Politicians and American voters are voicing their discontentment.
The president's innumerable scandals are turning the average voter away. He has been accused of sexual harassment by many women and some are fighting the legal system to be able to tell their story. Furthermore, special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe is ongoing and seemingly closing in on Trump.
