According to Gallup poll, President Donald Trump’s approval rating has hit real low. The poll was released this Monday. The poll revealed that Trump new approval rating is 34%, whereas 61% of Americans disapprove of his presidential performance since he took office in January, which is also a new high.
36% was the rating Trump had last week. Before that, he had a lowest rating of 35%, from March 26 to 28. Other presidents to have a rating this low were George H.W., Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter and Harry Truman. All of them dropped down to 34% as well, as revealed by Gallup. Truman had the lowest rating of all time in 1952, which was 22%. By going down to 34%, Trump has managed to get the lowest rating for any president in his first-term at the White House in Gallup’s history. Last year, President Barack Obama had an approval rating of 52%, whereas a 44% disapproval rating from August 8 to August 12.
The probable reason for this drop in Trump’s approval rating is the fact that he took two whole days before finally denouncing white supremacists at the White House on Monday, for their actions in Charlottesville, Va. “Racism is evil and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to what we hold dear as Americans,” Trump said. Many criticized him for not speaking on the matter earlier.
Gallup surveyed 1500 Americans over the phone and the results have a 3% margin or error.
