Trump approval down 10% in Gallup poll

The latest Gallup poll (the longest running series in the world) has Trump’s approval down 10% from 49% in April to 39% in May. His approval rating for the economy has also dropped from 63% in early 2020 to 47%.

Even if people think a particular poll is biased, this doesn’t matter in terms of the trend. A 10% drop is a 10% drop.

So how does Trump’s approval on Day 1231 of his presidency compare to other Presidents in Gallup polling.

  1. Eisenhower 71%
  2. Nixon 62%
  3. Reagan 55%
  4. Clinton 53%
  5. Bush 43 49%
  6. Obama 47%
  7. Johnson 46%
  8. Truman 40%
  9. Trump 39%
  10. Carter 38%
  11. Bush 41 37%

Those in bold were re-elected. Carter and Bush 41 were defeated and Johnson pulled out.

The only President who won while polling at Trump levels was Truman who was at 40%
