Trump's Average Job Approval Is At A Record Low
These two charts are from RealClearPolitics. The top chart shows all of the most recent polls on Donald Trump's job approval. It also gives the average of all those polls. The bottom chart shows that job approval average since Trump was sworn in.
Note that Trump's current job approval is at a record low of 39.7%, and his job disapproval is at a record high of 54.7%.
This is tearing Trump up, since his narcissism demands that he be viewed as popular and doing a great job. Unfortunately, for him, he is presiding over a White House in chaos -- and he keeps shooting himself in the foot with his tweets and statements. In addition, he continues to push an agenda that most Americans don't like -- and he continues to lie about that agenda (and nearly everything else).
If this continues (and there's no reason to believe it won't), Trump could well leave office as the most unpopular president in modern times -- making even Bush II and Nixon look good by comparison.
