President Donald Trump's first 100 days of falling popularity - in one chart

President Donald Trump's first 100 days in approval ratings

Donald Trump will have spent 100 days in the office of President of the United States of America by tomorrow.

His first months as President have seen allegations over Russian connections fail to dissipate, tirades against the media, a failure to push through healthcare reform, a shift to a more proactive foreign policy, and attempts to create manufacturing jobs in the US.

The billionaire businessman, TV star and now 45th US president has also had the lowest approval rating of any recent president as he took office - and these ratings haven't got any better.

Donald Trump's first 100 days

As he approaches his 100-day milestone, Gallup daily polling shows that just 40 per cent of Americans approve of the way Trump is handling his new job - compared to 55 per cent that disapprove.

In normal times, it takes American presidents hundreds of days before they reach a majority disapproval rating

This has been the case for the last five presidents - with Bill Clinton being the previous record holder after taking 573 days to have more than 50 per cent of Americans disapprove of his presidency.

But Donald Trump smashed this record after his victory on a wave of anti-establishment anger.

It took just eight days for him to gain a majority disapproval rating, according to Gallup, with 51 per cent of Americans saying they disapproved of the President on 28 January 2016.
