One day after a Pew Research Center poll put President Donald Trump’s job approval rating below 40 percent, another major survey delivered some tepid numbers for the Commander-in-Chief.
According to Friday’s edition of the daily Gallup tracking poll, Trump’s approval rating stands at 38 percent. That’s down from the 39 percent level where Pew had Trump a day earlier.
By comparison, former President Barack Obama was consistently tracking above 60 percent during his first six months in office. At no point in his presidency did Obama’s Gallup approval rating dip below 40 percent.
Never in the history of the Gallup tracking poll, which dates back to 1945, has a President had an approval rating below 40 percent (or even 50 percent) in his first month.
