Trump's unpopularity a growing problem

Trump's unpopularity a growing problem

A new poll released by Gallup found that only 37 percent of Americans approve of the job Trump is doing as opposed to 58 percent who disapprove.

By a wide 19-point margin, voters feel the economy is getting better, 48 percent to 29 percent.

President Donald Trump has a ratings problem, and we're not talking about the New Celebrity Apprentice. Gallup doesn't see the allegations that President Trump supports anti-Semitism as sticking and sees daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jareds' Jewishness as an olive branch to the Jewish community.

While being just two months into his presidency, Trump seems poised to reach historic lows in the next few months if things don't improve for the GOP leader.

The irony is that Trump, master businessman and real estate tycoon, is doing such a poor job selling the American public on what he's doing.

CNN President Jeff Zucker called Trump's attacks on the network "a badge of honor" for his employees in February.

In 1945, Truman had an 87 percent approval rating.

But the Real Clear Politics average of polls shows that Trump's approval rating is now at 43.7%.

Gallup's latest poll tracks daily results using telephone interviews with approximately 1,500 adults nationally.

That Trump is undeniably the nation's 45th president doesn't sit easily with young Americans who are the nation's increasingly diverse electorate of the future, according to another new poll. They come as FBI Director James Comey is expected to tell lawmakers that there is no evidence for his unverified claim that former President Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower during the election.

FiveThirtyEight, a polling aggregation website, shows that Trump's approval rating is also the lowest since he took office.
