Business Insider: New Polls Show Trump Will Conclude His First 100 Days As The Least Popular President In Modern History

“President Donald Trump set another record low approval rating as he concludes his first 100 days in office, though his core supporters largely support his brief tenure.

“A Washington Post/ABC poll released on Sunday showed the new president with the lowest approval rating at this point of any president since the polling began in 1945 — 42% of respondents told pollsters they approved of his performance thus far, while 53% disapproved.

“An NBC poll released on Sunday showed similar results: Just 40% said they approved of Trump's job performance, a 4 percentage-point drop from February. Fifty-four percent disapproved, a 6 point increase.

“The polls continued to demonstrate that Trump did not experience the traditional honeymoon period most new presidents receive following the conclusion of the presidential election and the ceremonies associated with taking office.

“NBC pointed out that at similar points in their presidencies, President Barack Obama had a 61% approval rating, while President George W. Bush had a 56% approval rating and President Bill Clinton's was at 52%.

Since taking office, Trump's approval rating has hovered in the low-40's and even dipped into the high-30's, according to at least one major recent poll.”

U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders’s congratulates President Trump. “He has set a new record—having the lowest approval rating of any president after the first three months in office. This tells us something very important. Americans clearly aren’t on board with his disastrous agenda: xenophobic immigration policies, throwing millions off health care, putting corporate profits over the safety of our environment, and many more horrible decisions. What we need to do is push a progressive agenda that brings people together and says, we can have health care for all people as a right. We can raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour. Climate change is not a hoax. The American people are on our side and this is how we can win.”
