The struggling US president is having a hard time in the polls.

According to data collected by political statistics site FiveThirtyEight, the incumbent US president has not had a positive net approval rating in four months.

The most recent positive approval rating found by any poll was a Morning Consult poll (27th – 30th April), which gave Trump a net approval rating of +3%. In the poll, 48% of respondents said they approved of Trump’s performance while 45% said they disapproved.

However, it is worth noting that a Rasmussen Reports/Pulse Opinion Research poll (13th – 15th June) gave Donald Trump a net approval rating of 0%, according to FiveThirtyEight.
