Trump’s approval rising

Trump’s approval rating is normally a net -13% or so but at the moment it is only -5%. This shows that in moments of crisis, people tend to rally behind the Government (regardless of how well they actually are handling it).

So how does Trump’s rating stack up with other Presidents around eight months out from the election? In order their net approvals are:

  1. Eisenhower +55%
  2. Nixon +18%
  3. Reagan +15%
  4. Clinton +11%
  5. Johnson +9%
  6. Bush GW +3%
  7. Obama +2%
  8. Carter +2%
  9. Trump -5%
  10. Bush GHW -9%
  11. Truman -9%

Those in bold were re-elected.
