President Trump’s disapproval rating just hit yet another historic new low. According to the latest Gallup poll, 60% of Americans disapprove of the president’s job performance. (His previous record was a 59% disapproval rating on March 28.)
Presidents Obama, Clinton, Reagan, Carter, and H.W. Bush never hit a 60% disapproval in their entire presidencies. Only George W. Bush – almost in the 5th year of his presidency and well into the massively unpopular Iraq War – has ever earned a 60% disapproval rating out of any president in modern history.
Days to hit a 60% disapproval rating:
H.W. Bush: Never
W. Bush: 1,756
