The struggling US president is having a hard time in the polls.
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.
What do the most recent polls say?
- Gallup (28th – 30th): Approve (34%), Disapprove (60%), Net (-26%)
- Rasmussen Reports/Pulse Opinion Research: Approve (41%), Disapprove (58%), Net (17%)
- YouGov: Approve (38%), Disapprove (53%), Net (-15%)
Does this mean Trump is finished?
Trump is a politician who has broken the traditional playbook. His ratings may be awful compared to other presidents at this stage in their presidencies, but in the world of President Trump, a second term is certainly possible.
