Trump approval hits new low

President Trump’s approval rating has hit a new low in the wake of the GOP’s failure to pass its ObamaCare replacement legislation.

According to Gallup’s job approval tracker, only 36 percent of adults polled approve of the job Trump is doing, against 57 percent who disapprove. 

The survey was conducted March 24–26.

Trump whipped furiously on behalf of the bill, warning lawmakers that the rest of his agenda would be in peril if it failed to pass.


Trump’s previous low in the Gallup survey was 37 percent approval, recorded only 10 days ago.

The president registered his highest approval rating of 46 percent just days after his Jan. 20 inauguration. He has been underwater on job approval ever since, averaging 42 percent approval over the course of his two months in office.

Gallup’s three-day rolling average of 1,500 U.S. adults has a 3 percentage point margin of error.
