Trump’s approval ratings fall…again

Reading Time: 1 minute
[US]–American president, Donald Trump’s approval ratings have reportedly hit an all-time low.

According to Gallup, the new ratings are much lower than those of other recent presidents when tracked at the same point in their administrations.

On Tuesday, it slipped to 35 percent down from 36 percent on the previous day.

On the other hand, his disapproval jumped from 56 percent to 59 percent in the same span.

Paling in comparison to other presidents, Trump’s ratings are far from the likes of President Jimmy Carter and other recent leaders whose approval ratings were 53 percent or higher at roughly the same point in their first terms as tracked by Gallup.

The major dip came following the failure of the repeal of the Affordable Care Act also known as Obamacare.

 It currently trails President Barack Obama’s lowest approval of 38 percent and President Bill Clinton’s worst record of 37 percent.
According to Gallup, the two afore-mentioned presidents, Bush, Carter, Nixon and Truman all had approval ratings lower than 35 percent at one point in time.
Trump’s approval ratings have never been exactly high, with him emerging president as an unpopular victor whose policies so far including those on immigration and environment have been extremely divisive.
