The President of the United States, Donald Trump, needed only 69 days to reach the performance of previous presidents such as Jimmy Carter, Richard Nixon or George W. Bush.
So, the current president of the United States, Donald Trump, managed to get his hands on an approval rate of 35%, according to Gallup. Only seven previous Presidents did this since Gallup has started to monitor presidential approval rates ( during the Harry Truman presidency, 1945 – 1953 ).
The American people punished Donald Trump for a series of controversial executive orders issued in the first days of his presidency but also because he failed to repeal Obamacare, one of his major campaign promises.
If Donald Trump goes under 35% approval rate, he will join a select club alongside Lyndon B. Johnson and Ronald Reagan.
Let’s take a look at how long other United States Presidents needed to reach an approval rate of nearly 35%:
Trump – 69 days
Truman – 524 days
Reagan – 741 days
Carter – 851 days
H.W Bush – 1283 days
Nixon – 1659 days
Johnson – 1725 days
W. Bush – 1926 days
As you can easily see, Donald Trump is the champion!
