Skip to comments.6 months in, record low job approval for Trump: Poll
Posted on 07/16/2017 4:41:17 AM PDT by John W
Americans give President Donald Trump the lowest six-month approval rating of any president in polls dating back 70 years, punctuated by questions about his competence on the world stage, his effectiveness, the GOP health care plan and Russias role in the 2016 election.
Just 36 percent of Americans polled in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll approve of Trumps job performance, down 6 points from his 100-day mark, itself a low. The previous president closest to this level at or near six months was Gerald Ford, at 39 percent, in February 1975.

They don’t remember how ineffective our first black foreign-born president was his first year but he sure was popular.
I’d guess the same polling methodology had hillary winning the election by a landslide..
No. This is the predictable consequence of saturation negative coverage. Trump is an easier target than most other Republicans would have been, but I do not believe the Democrat/MSM playbook would have been appreciably different had some other Republican been elected. They spent the last six years of the Bush 43 administration in a sustained hate campaign, and it is becoming clear beyond serious doubt that the Democrats now regard this as normal politics. The Democrats no longer accept the legitimacy of an opposition party.
Oh my, and I’d bet they would be churning out sky high, record breaking numbers for their preferred candidate even though most likely she would be barely able to get out of bed before 10:00 am on most days, let alone really do anything as President.
I just don’t pay attention to the MSM anymore. They have become an ignore at all cost for me. To me this seems ridiculous and false but if it were true who cares?
The first amendment is being abused by the MSM to spread leftist propaganda. I do not have the answer....
One America News plus a little local stuff. That is it for us as far as TV news goes.
Must have polled the donors to the Clinton Foundation.
More fake news.
None of it has the slightest connection with reality.
Trump is so unpopular - he’ll be impeached any day now.
The Democrats and their captive media are far less popular than him.
yeah, I’m not too concerned with ABC or any other polls.
They were crap before election day and they are crap now.
Such deceitful scumbags they are
...and not the poll that counts, anyway...
Trumpsters, give it up.
ALL (Yes, “All”) the polls show that Hillary will win the election by a landslide. The NY Times has gives her an 85% chance of winning!!! Nate Silver even RAISED his prediction 6 points after the first returns came in.
Get ready for 8 years of Hillary.
85% 85% 85%
I just saw on Fox morning show the jobs were good!
Ther is a simple answer, but far too many on this and other forums are unwilling to accept that the mass media is nothing more than a corporate entity with their agendas disregarding the truth, especially all of it.
If more were to accept it, then the reality of penalizing them just as any other regulated corporate entity for violating the public trust. Who would be the arbiter is the sticky point but then again, what do we have representatives for in the first place?
It all comes back to the populace keeping them accountable with their powers they constantly oinly use for their own self interests.
No one asked me.
Figures lie and liars figure...
I do, and it’s becoming clearer by the day that it is the only one that will stick. It’s also the one we will be forced to commit or otherwise lose America, freedom, and live under a one world government.
These fake polls are so October 2016.
