President Trump's Approval Rating Hits a New Low

President Trump's Approval Rating Hits a New Low

That is more than 11% lower than the president's overall approval rating of 42%, according to the latest Gallup poll taken from January 20, the day Trump was sworn in, to March 15.

Vice President Mike Pence's combined approval rating-those who strongly approve and somewhat approve-was marginally higher than Trump's, 45.5 percent compared with 44.1 percent.

Unsurprisingly the response to Trump's tweet was less than forgiving.

While being just two months into his presidency, Trump seems poised to reach historic lows in the next few months if things don't improve for the GOP leader.

While these numbers aren't great, Trump's daily Gallup ratings are even worse.

Trump also jumped right in tackling some of the bolder items on his agenda, issues certain to stir up controversy.

Far more people are demanding an investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the election campaign than Trump's claims that President Obama "wiretapped" Trump Tower.

While Trump will most likely chalk this poll up to "fake news", the reality is that he is in unsafe territory by having so many Americans believe he is doing a bad job.

The lowest presidential job approval ever recorded by Gallup was 22 percent, the public's assessment of Harry Truman's performance in February 1952, almost seven years into his presidency.

The Associated Press reported last week on a GenForward poll that found a majority of young adults - 57 percent - see Trump's presidency as illegitimate, including about three-quarters of black people and large majorities of Latinos and Asians.

Meanwhile, 51% disapprove giving him an overall rating of -8.

Donald Trump was a fan of that poll, proudly tweeting it out.
