I honestly did now know there was such a record but apparently, there is. In just a little over one week, Donald Trump managed to get a majority of Americans to disapprove of the work he is doing as president.
It took former President George W. Bush 1,205 days to reach a majority disapproval rating. Former President Barack Obama crossed that threshold in 936 days.
And President Donald Trump did it in just over a week.
The Republican, who was sworn in on Jan. 20 as the least popular president in at least 40 years, hit majority disapproval in a record eight days, a new Gallup poll of 1,500 Americans finds. As of Saturday, 51 percent of Americans disapproved of Trump.
Trump’s majority disapproval rating comes after a tumultuous first week in office that was capped off with his widely protested executive order banning immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries. After the president’s first day in office, millions of women and men protested his agenda in the Women’s March on Washington and sister marches around the world.
