With more than two-thirds of all Americans now disapproving of the job performance of President Donald Trump, a new poll out Saturday shows that he is now the most unpopular U.S. president during his first year in office since surveys of this kind have been taken.
Conducted by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, the poll shows that a majority of Americans now hold “a broadly pessimistic view of Trump’s presidency, the nation’s politics and the overall direction of the country.” Only three out of ten respondents said the U.S. is “heading in the right direction” while a bipartian majority, 52 percent, said the “country is worse off since Trump became president.”
As AP reports, “Trump’s job approval rating sits at just 32 percent, making him the least popular first-year president on record. A quarter of Republicans say they’re among those who disapprove of the president.”
