Trump's Presidential Approval Rating In Context

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

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...

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

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?

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?

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.

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.

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!".
