Trump’s First Approval Numbers are FINALLY in….Not a Good Start!

Only 45% of Americans approve of Trump’s job performance over the first three days of his presidency, according to a Gallup survey released Monday. It’s the first time a president has received an initial approval rating under 50% in the history of the poll, which dates back to Dwight Eisenhower’s first term in 1953.

President Donald Trump’s first job-approval rating is in, and they are the lowest an incoming president has ever received.

Only 45% of Americans approve of Trump’s job performance over the first three days of his presidency, according to a Gallup survey released Monday. It’s the first time a president has received an initial approval rating under 50% in the history of the poll, which dates back to Dwight Eisenhower’s first term in 1953.

Another 45% of Americans disapproved of Trump’s performance — also the highest initial rating in the poll’s history. The last 10% had not yet formed an opinion.

Republicans and Democrats were sharply divided over the president’s performance, the poll indicated, with 90% of Republicans signaling approval and 81% of Democrats disapproving. Independents appear to be split, with 40% approving and 44% disapproving.

Men were more likely to approve of Trump’s performance than women — 48% to 42%. The racial disparity was even greater, with 56% of whites approving compared to 22% of nonwhites.

The survey affirms the findings of other polls conducted before Inauguration Day that showed Trump was a historically unpopular incoming president. Trump denounced that batch of polls as “rigged” last week.

While Trump is the first president to receive an initial approval rating below 50%, two other presidents came close to matching him. Both George H.W. Bush and Ronald Reagan started their presidencies with an approval rating of 51%.

The difference in those two cases, Gallup points out, is in their disapproval ratings. Both Bush and Reagan’s initial disapproval ratings were below 15%, with a large chunk of Americans responding that they hadn’t yet formed an opinion.

Unfortunately, Trump and the Republican politicians don’t care about approval ratings. They don’t care about the citizens at all. They have their own special agenda.

Remember this date November 6, 2018. That’s the date on which 33 senate seats, all 435 seats in the House of Representatives, and 14 governorship’s will be up for re-election. Put it on your calendar now and be prepared to be an informed voter.  Remember the things that Trump is doing now and vote to take away his favorable Congress.
