Approval Rating | How Trump ’s 1st 100 Days Compares To Former Presidents

US President Donald J. Trump ’s first 100 days in office have been unlike any other.

How has his tenure equated with that of the preceding three presidents?

We observed at what their approval ratings were.

Here is how they measure up:

Approval Rating

Year President Initial Approval Approval
2017 Donald J. Trump 45 42
2009 Barack Obama 68 65
2001 George W. Bush 57 62
1993 Bill Clinton 58 55

Presidents, coming off successful election campaigns, normally move in office with high approval ratings.

For most of his initial 100 days, Trump ‘s approval rating was the poorest for a US commander-in-chief in modern history.

Trump ’s popular vote loss of approximately three million, controversial travel ban barring people from majority-Muslim nations, and bombastic messages on twitter altogether contributed to his worse approval rating.
