According to USA Today, Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office have been the lowest ratings since 1945. This data comes from a NBC News and Wall Street Journal poll that says nearly two-thirds of Americans think Trump’s presidency is off to a fair or poor start.
USA Today claims Trump has made clear that the recurring 100th day analysis of presidents should not be a big deal, yet efforts are being made on his part to highlight his own triumphs during this time. The article details his plans for a website to parade his accomplishments during these 100 days.
Another article of the same topic from The Washington Post takes a more statistical stance and provides numbers to compare Trump to other low-rated presidents of the past. The approval rating of 42 percent during Trump’s 100 days as president is the lowest since Dwight D. Eisenhower’s presidency, according to the data presented in the article. The data is from a poll that The Washington Post conducted.
Though the sources are different, they still show the same results: Trump has been an underwhelming president, according to Americans reading NBC News, The Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post.
