By any measure, Donald Trump is cratering. The latest average from FiveThirtyEight pegs his average approval rating at 37.7 percent–which is absolutely brutal by any standard.

One of the most disheartening moments of the 2016 campaign came when the infamous “Access Hollywood” tapes came out, and the religious right still continued to bow down to Donald Trump.
