President Donald Trump is not exactly having a banner week. First, he failed to gain enough support for the Republican’s plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act last Friday. Now, his approval rating has dropped to a low of 36 percent, according to TIME.
This probably came as a surprise Trump, because as recently as Friday his ratings were rising, even as the GOP health care bill was failing in the House.
But on the plus side, Trump is winning in this particular area—his lowest rating beats Obama’s, which was 38 percent, as well as Bill Clinton’s and Gerald Ford’s, which were both 37 percent, Gallup says in their report. So, congrats, Mr. President! Now he just has to get his approval rating below 24 percent, and he’ll beat President Richard Nixon, who had to resign!
Trump has always struggled with his ratings, as he began the presidency with the lowest approval rating in history, TIME reminds readers. While he might continue to draw thousands of people to supportive rallies, this just shows most of the country is not on board with Trump.
