I’ve previously confessed that I check the daily update of Gallup’s approval rating numbers on President Trump most days. I’m not proud of it, and I promised myself I wouldn’t write about them again until they set a new high or low.
In the latest three-day Gallup average, the president’s disapproval number hit 60 percent, a new high. His approval number, 36 percent, is still one point above his all-time low of 35 from late March.
The Gallup trendlines, based on a three-day rolling average, are here.
The Gallup numbers are a bit worse for Trump than several other polls, but they are not the worst. If you prefer a blended average of all reputable polls on the subject, the Huffington Post publishes that. The latest such blended average shows Trump at 39.7 percent approval/55.6 percent disapproval.
As I also mentioned previously, these are not the worst presidential approval/disapproval numbers ever but, on balance, Trump has had the worst ratings during the first five months of his tenure of any president in the history of polling. FiveThirtyEight.com has added a feature that shows Trump’s trend line versus all other presidents going back to Harry S. Truman.
