That’s Trump’s all-time low approval, along with his highest disapproval rating (62 percent!) since becoming president. Trump is pretty much the all-time leading loser of Gallup’s daily tracking poll this early in a presidency. Point of comparison: Historian Kevin Kruse notes that Trump’s 33 percent approval is lower than Ike, JFK, LBJ, Ford, Reagan, Clinton or Obama ever had during their presidencies.
Likewise, compare where Truman and Nixon were at roughly this same point in their presidencies: 63% and 56%, respectively. pic.twitter.com/7cmGCt1x9j
