Trump Approval Hits a New Record Low

Written by SK Ashby

Trump has settled into an approval rating of just 37 percent according to the latest Gallup poll.

A solid majority of Americans polled, 58 percent, said they disapprove of the president’s job performance.

The results represent Trump’s worst results in the poll since his inauguration in January and a swing from just over a week ago, on March 11, when 45 percent of those surveyed told Gallup they approved of the president’s job performance (49 percent said they disapproved then).

This is the lowest approval rating registered by Gallup of any previous president at this early point (two months) in their first term.

From my perspective, the fact that his approval rating has swung this far in a single week is less about statistical noise and more about Trump's ability to self-destruct after briefly enjoying modest headlines. Everything Trump touches turns to shit.

If Republicans actually kick 24 million or more people off their healthcare, Trump's approval will dive south of George W. Bush at his lowest point.
