Trump Reaches Majority Disapproval In Record Time

by Felix Richter,

-- this post authored by Niall McCarthy

All modern American presidents have seen their disapproval rating surpass the 50 percent mark at some stage after taking office.

Some reached that milestone faster than others but generally, it took all of them hundreds of days to do so. George Bush senior lasted an impressive 1,336 days before he hit 50 percent disapproval in Gallup's polls while Bill Clinton lasted 573 days before reaching majority disapproval. As a result of the federal debt crisis, Barack Obama passed the 50 percent mark 936 days into his presidency.

Donald Trump has reached majority disapproval in record time, just 8 days. When he entered office, an initial poll from Gallup showed that 45 percent of Americans approved of him, 45 disapproved and 10 percent were undecided. In his first week, he announced construction of the border wall, halted immigration from seven countries, gutted the Affordable Care Act and reversed U.S abortion policy, pushing his disapproval rating to 51 percent, according to a Gallup poll released on January 28.

This chart shows the U.S. presidents by number of days in office until Gallup disapproval rating hit 50 percent.
