The thing to keep in mind with this also, is Trump’s approval ratings are likely artificially low due to liberal “agenda polls.”
These were the same pollsters than gave Hillary a 99% chance of winning that say Trump’s approval rating is low.
But there’s some small solace for the president this week: His approval rating is, at least for the moment, a hair better than where President Bill Clinton stood at the same point in his first term.
Different polling outfits put Trump at varying levels of approval, but the RealClearPolitics average had him at 39.8 percent Tuesday, while the weighted average from FiveThirtyEight had him at exactly 39 percent.
Not great numbers, but still better than Clinton.
On Day 138 of his presidency, just 37.8 percent of Americans approved of the job he was doing, according to FiveThirtyEight.
