A recent poll from Gallup shows the President-elect’s approval rating is at an all time low, lower than any presidential transition Gallup has measured. Gallup conducted the polling January 4-8 with a random sample of 1,032 adults over 18.
The poll showed that only 44% approved of him while 51% disapproved, compared to Obama, Bush, and Clinton, those numbers are extremely low.
Obama at this point in his presidency had a 83% approval rate, with only 12% thinking otherwise. For Bush 61% of people showed that they favored him, with a 25% disapproval rate. And for Clinton, 68% showed approval while only 18% didn’t.
Trump’s numbers have gone down since the last poll. Since December, Democrats’ approval of the President-elect went from 17% to 13%. And the decline was even worse coming from Independents, going from a 46% approval rate to 33%.
Not only did Trump get a low approval rate, but 44% believed that he had selected a below-average or poor cabinet. That number is quite high compared to Obama, Bush, and Clinton who didn’t receive more than 13% in that category.
