The United States President Donald Trump recorded the lowest approval rating of any president in their first year with 35 percent.
The only former U.S. president to fall below a 40 percent approval rating in their first year was Bill Clinton.
According to the latest Gallup Poll, Trump’s approval rating from March 20 through Sunday March 26, Gallup said Trump’s approval rating among men has fallen 7 percent — from 51 percent in early March to 44 percent on Sunday.
Trump’s approval rating among women saw a smaller decrease from 36 percent to 34 percent.
Based on a three-day rolling average as at Wednesday, the poll shows 35 percent of Americans approve of the job Trump is doing as president, while 59 percent disapprove.
This represents the largest decrease in major subgroups.
“Already a trendsetter by earning the lowest initial job approval rating of any president and falling below 40 percent approval in record time, Trump’s recent 35 percent and 36 percent approval ratings are the lowest of any president in his first year,” Gallup wrote in a statement.
“What ensues will depend not only on Trump’s management of his administration and relations with Congress, but also on his relationship with the media and, possibly most importantly, real-world economic and national security conditions that Trump can only partly control.”
The poll is based on telephone interviews of about 1,500 U.S adults and has a 3 percent margin of error.
Trump’s approval rating decreased in all major subgroups, such as political party affiliation, age and education, in the same time range.
The subgroup Gallup poll, which has a 2 percent margin of error, is based on telephone interviews of about 3,546 U.S. adults.
