Trump's Approval Ratings Are In - Gallup Releases Their Latest Poll Numbers

Donald Trump has the lowest approval rating of any president in history after just two months in the White House, the Gallup Poll found in its most recent national survey.

Only 37 percent of voters gave Trump a favorable score, while 58 percent expressed disapproval of his administration, according to Newsmax. In Gallup’s previous poll, conducted nine days previously, 45 percent said they liked the president’s performance.

CNN speculated that the number dropped partly because of Trump’s unproven allegation that former President Obama ordered the surveillance of Trump Tower during last year’s campaign. The FBI and NSA told the House Intelligence Committee on Monday there was no evidence to support the claim.

Other issues dogging the president include the courts blocking his anti-immigration executive orders, and the Congressional Budget Office predicting that 24 million Americans will lose their health insurance if a Republican bill replacing Obamacare becomes law. The biggest scandal might be Trump’s links to Russia. Numerous members of his campaign staff and administration have Russian connections, and the president frequently praises Vladimir Putin. The Justice Department is investigating Russia’s attempts to help Trump win the election. Agents also are looking into whether the president’s staffers cooperated with the Russians.

The lowest approval rating Obama experienced was 38 percent. Politico reported that he averaged a 48 percent score during his eight years in office, and had more than 50 percent approval when he left the job. Such polls go back 72 years, to the Franklin Roosevelt administration. Gallup compiles results on a daily basis by contacting about 1,500 voters on the phone. The polls reportedly have a margin of error of three percentage points.

One of the losers of last year’s White House race, Sen. Bernie Sanders is much more popular than the election winner. A recent survey indicated that 61 percent of Americans have a favorable view of the independent Vermont lawmaker, who challenged Clinton for the Democratic nomination. Sanders is traveling the country, holding rallies to promote a progressive legislative agenda and encourage liberal congressional candidates.
