How Low Can He Go?

Donald Trump’s latest approval rating has him at 37% favorable.   Trump has ranged from a high of 46% right after taking office to his current low in the Gallup Daily Tracking Poll.   Even more troubling for Trump should be the steady rise in his disapproval rating which is now at an all time high of 58% up 13 points from January.

For comparison, only Bill Clinton and Bush I were in the 50’s at this point in their presidencies and most presidents have been above 60% with Carter, Kennedy and Eisenhower in the 70’s.

Not that you asked, but Red thinks the current approval floor is a bit above the pathetic 25% W. Bush hit at the end of his disastrous second term.  Red reckons that about 29% of Americans will approve of Trump no matter what he says or does.   But even the 30’s are troubling  – with such lows having been hit by embattled and impeached Nixon and incompetent and overwhelmed W. Bush in their second terms as well as by one-termers Carter and Bush I.
