Trump's Presidential Approval Rating In Context

Tyler Durden's picture

Presidential job approval is a simple, yet powerful, measure of the public's view of the president's job performance at a particular time. Approval ratings for Presidents Obama and Trump shown in the Presidential Job Approval Center are based on weekly Gallup Daily tracking averages.

From Truman to Trump...

On day 212 in office, President Trump has a 37% approval rating.

President Truman holds the record for lowest approval rating (for now) at 22% on day 2499 in office.

President George 'W' Bush holds the record for the highest approval rating at 89% on day 267 in office

Truman's ratings went way south when he fired MacArthur, but his ratings have improved as time goes on.  I didn't like him at first but I am warming to him.  Will Donald's  ratings be comparable?  It is up to him, and time.

"I didn't like him at first but I am warming to him."

You're still warming up to Truman?  You should really finalize your opinion on the guy.  That was a pretty long time ago.

I logged in just to +1 - that made me laugh.

It is not a fair comparison as Truman was a vindictive and ignorant little shit with the small man syndrome that created what we now call the deep start and intelligence community on his watch... Not even mentioning the "lobbing" of nukes just to prove he was all man... The world would be a much better place had Truman not replaced Henry Wallace on the ticket in 1944...

spot on. he ultimately decided that it is a good thing to burn 100 thousands of civilians alive in order to demonstrate to the Russians that coexistence is not in the Angloimperialists DNA but dominance. The war that ensued is still raging give or take a Trump or two.

Bullshit; Trump now a shoe-in for 2020. The opposition is in a state of advanced intellectual impairment if they believe this nonsense.. 

JRobby's picture

We saw how predictive all the polls were during the election cycle last year.................

Why are they still in business? Same reason S & P and Moody's are: to rig things for the elite.

MSM has no credibility at this point. Zero.

Nowhere to go but up.

Trump is not a king. He cannot write laws or snap his fingers and make Obamacare go away.

DivisionBell's picture

He can however terminate DACA since it is not law.

For fuck's sake, aren't we done with "opinion polls" yet?  Have we not learned at this late date that they are ALL 100% HORSESHIT?


DivisionBell's picture

Gallup, eh?  They predicted Hillary would win too.

Pretty clear by now that this guys is a total fucking disaster as a president. The only people still behind him are right wing angry white people with no education. And who gives a shit about them anyways?

truthseeker47's picture

You forgot the sarc tag, 66.  Or are you off your meds?

NoDebt's picture

"The only people still behind him are right wing angry white people with no education."

The same kind of people who won WWII.  Those fucking asholes.

This is why you will lose ever election from here on.

Keyser's picture

Funny, but we said the same thing about Obozo and look what a fucking disaster he made of things, so pick your battles carefully...

That "basket of deplorables" line worked so well for you guys the first time...

adampeart's picture

Yeah, it's the white people who lack education.

JRobby's picture

Yup, that's me 66. Or should I call you 86?

Except for my moderate political stance and education (bought when it was still cheap).

You and your blanket catigorizations are part of a glaring problem with the world.

Why is Kennedy's graph so short compared to the rest?

NoDebt's picture

I don't know if that's humor or raw stupidity, but I up-voted it.


jerry_theking_lawler's picture

If you are 'good'...this is what happens, a short graph. When I say good, I mean someone who wants to reign in the .fed and make real money. Noone before or after and they all have nice long graphs...

Back and to the right...back and to the right...

I only support Trump on the basis that Liberals hate him - that alone makes him tolerable.

that's a pretty fucking low bar

it's good to know you have high expectations


Billy the Poet's picture

There was the time I went third party and voted for Nader. You remember what a fine president he was.

adampeart's picture

It was the only bar we were given....yet again.

Thom Paine's picture

Opinion poll totally useless by itself and not focused on Trump's base. Also it doesn't show...if you had to choose between Trump and Democrat, which you support.

Opinion polls unless tightly focused, and not for media consumption, useless.

The Trump dump is coming people........ it was manufatured by OBumer.

Fake poll. Oversampling bias

adampeart's picture

At this point does it really matter?

Wakesetter's picture

All I know is Hillary lost.

That and I find Donald's pressers fucking hilarious. Wish he would just drop the hammer they are never going to give him anything.

Meanwhile, Putin's approval rating is 83%.

buffalolips's picture

Trump's approval ratings would probably be something close to that of Putin if corrupt Republican politicans (who have been selling their votes), and corporate media, supported the concept of MAGA. But they don't want MAGA which should tell anyone not born deaf, dumb, blind or brain dead at birth everything they need to know. These ne'er-do-wells support globalsim and world government. What does that mean for you? It means you have already become their slave, nothing less, and they don't want to set you free. Trump tried (in his own way) to implement a 21st Century Emancipation Proclamation. Congress and Corporate America said "No Way!".

Mimir's picture

The American people says "No Way" too. Look at the approval rates of this so-called President.
