Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse, a survey of fans across MLB. Each week, we send 30 polls to plugged in fans from each team. Cardinals fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.

With just two wins in their last six games, concerns continue to mount among Cardinals fans. In the latest FanPulse survey, Cardinals fans gave a 23% confidence rating in the club. That is the lowest it has been this season and currently the second-lowest in the league. The Pirates were charted with a zero percent confidence rating this week. For contrast, the Astros, Rays, and Twins all have 100 percent ratings. It’s neat to see a team from each American League division playing so well.

Trending with the overall confidence rating, Cardinals fans aren’t feeling too hot about manager Mike Shildt. Fans gave a 62 percent approval rating of Shildt this week; that is up from the 60 percent a couple of weeks back, but notably lower than last week’s results. That shows what being on both sides of a sweep can do.

Looking at the managerial ratings across the league, the Astros, Rays, Phillies, Twins, and Rangers all had complete approval ratings from their respective fans. Mets fans’ approval rating of Mickey Callaway is down to just 14 percent. The Padres had a 16 percent drop, while the Nationals had a 16 percent jump. The Padres and Nationals split a four-game series in San Diego back on June 6-9.

Like every week, along with the team-specific questions, every MLB FanPulse participant was asked a national question.
