US President Donald Trump’s disapproval rating appears to be on the path to reach 60 percent, a Gallup’s daily tracking poll shows. The 57-percent disapproval rating the president currently enjoys is slightly lower that his 60 percent record in mid-June, showed results of the Gallup poll released Sunday.
The past two Democratic presidents, Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, never reached a 60 percent disapproval in the Gallup survey but Republican President George W. Bush managed to reach the 60 percent disapproval mark after almost five years in the White House.
Thirty-seven percent of those surveyed in the latest poll, said they still approve of the job Trump is doing. Having a margin of error of 3 percentage points, the poll was conducted among approximately 1,500 American adults via telephone.
According to a RealClear Politics average of polls, 54.5 percent of the Americans disapprove of the president’s job performance while 40 percent approve of it. A Gallup poll in May suggested that Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, gets less negative ratings than her father.
“Virtually all Americans are familiar with Donald Trump, with only 1% having no opinion of the president. Ivanka Trump is less familiar, though still well-known to Americans, with 16% saying they have never heard of or have no opinion of her,” Gallup said.
