Polls: Trump approaches 100 days with lowest job approval rating in more than 70 years
Six days before marking his first 100 days in office, President Trump has the lowest approval rating of any president in more than 70 years, a pair of polls published Sunday found.
According to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll, just 42 percent of Americans approve of Trump’s performance as president, while 53 percent disapprove. Nearly 70 percent of Americans approved of the job Barack Obama was doing at the same point in his presidency, while just 26 percent disapproved. On average, past presidents have enjoyed a 69 percent approval, 19 percent disapproval split at or near their first 100-day mark, according to the survey.
