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:
|2017||Donald J. Trump||45||42|
|2001||George W. Bush||57||62|

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.
