Default Trump approaches 100 days with lowest job approval rating in more than 70 years

Six days before marking his first 100 days in office, President Trump has the lowest approval rating of any president in more than 70 years, a pair of polls published Sunday found.

According to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll, just 42 percent of Americans approve of Trump’s performance as president, while 53 percent disapprove. Nearly 70 percent of Americans approved of the job Barack Obama was doing at the same point in his presidency, while just 26 percent disapproved. On average, past presidents have enjoyed a 69 percent approval, 19 percent disapproval split at or near their first 100-day mark, according to the survey.

Not Trump. According to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, nearly two-thirds of Americans (64 percent) give Trump “poor or middling marks for his first 100 days in office” — including 45 percent who say he’s off to a “poor start.”

In 2009, by contrast, 54 percent of Americans said that Barack Obama’s first 100 days had gotten off to either a good or great start, compared with 46 percent who said fair or poor.

The survey shows Trump’s overall job-approval rating at 40 percent as he approaches 100 days — the lowest job-approval rating for a new president at this point in the history of the NBC/WSJ poll.

President Trump might have a low approval , and perhaps it is the lowest in"70 years" but he is hardly the winner of that contest. Abe Lincoln was so unpopular he had to sneak into Washington after his 1860 victory at the polls.
Evidence for The Unpopular Mr. Lincoln

I am by no means comparing THE Donald to president Lincoln. However, Our love and respect for Mr. Lincoln was earned over his performance of 4.5 years as President. And viewed through the prism of history.

100 days is an arbitrary number created mostly for the Media who generally gave the new guy a so called "honeymoon" Something they, and the opposition party, did not extend to THE Donald.

What I posted doesn't defend President Trump in any manner. It factually refutes the premise of the OP regardless of your personal comparison to THE Donald.

And was likely above your pay grade.
My bad.

How does it refute the premise of the OP?

OP stated: Six days before marking his first 100 days in office, President Trump has the lowest approval rating of any president in more than 70 years, a pair of polls published Sunday found.

And your response is to reach back over twice that period to point out something that's obviously not included in the above assessment?
Somebody's being dishonest here and it ain't the original article...
That would be you in claiming the OP had been "factually refuted"...

Again you avoid the point to make yours


My point is that 100 days is a made up unit of measure. Essentially worthless as a predictor of the overall performance of a 4 year President. Besides 1947 is considered the first time such a unit of measure was employed. There is no comparison prior to that except an analysis of the entire Term of past Presidents. Making the 70 year comparison a rather pathetic reach, if not kinda silly.

But then, the left is desperate for new subjects to explore and vent their hate.

So this is why I asked you to justify how your response "factually refutes" the premise.
Without surprise, you failed to do so and you still refuse to validate your claim.

Considering nobody is claiming it's a predictor of the overall performance, your comments would be better classified as a meaningless non-sequitur as opposed to "factually refute".

This is so absurdly obtuse it isn't even funny.
1947 was the first time "first 100 days" approval was employed, and because it reflects poorly on Trump you want to claim it's irrelevant?

So if 70 years of data is not sufficient, how much would be?
We don't have good polling data for all our presidents, so should we throw all that out the window too?
Or maybe we can keep it if it involves a Democrat president?
While hyperbolized, your real argument is not much better.

Trump's approval is in the crapper.
But we're the ones who are desperate.
