More Americans think President Trump is doing a poor job than for any other recent president.
Polling ahead of President Trump’s 100th day in office, which is April 29, has found he is proving unpopular among Americans.
According to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Sunday, 45 percent of Americans believe Trump is doing a poor job.
Of those who believe Trump is doing a good job, 19 percent say he is off to a fair start, while 35 percent believe he is doing a good or great job.
This compares badly with his predecessor, President Obama.
In 2009, a combined 54 percent of Americans said Barack Obama was off to a good or great start within his first 100 days as president.
25 percent said Obama was off to a fair start, while 21 percent called his performance to that point poor – less than half as many as for Trump.
Trump’s overall approval rating has slid another four points from last month, also.
It now sits at 40 percent, lower than any of his Democratic and Republican predecessors.
Obama’s approval rating stood at 61 percent at this point in his administration, while George W. Bush’s was at 56 percent and Bill Clinton’s was at 52 percent.

You're being generous with "recent". No president has polled this bad in 70 years.

It's almost comical how he is now downplaying the first 100 days benchmark, when he was the one who specifically made a contract and promise during the campaign about all the things he would do.  Tongue
And look at all the winning he's done by now:

And he's just getting started. I think we can see what to expect in the near future:

Well that is a feat. Obama was awful, to be twice as bad as that is well, pretty bad.

Do you really want to go there? 

Obama promised to end no bid contracts, yet he used them. 

He promised to end GWB era spying on US citizens, yet he expanded it beyond belief.

He promised to protect whistle blowers, yet he did the complete opposite. 

He played politics over equality for gays. 

It's a pretty long list of Obama election lies.

Translate: "I know #45 is indefensible, but what about Obama?"

Seriously? That's your response to the fact that we are stuck with a highly unpopular and arguably incompetent president? This is ridiculous and borderline childish at this point. With that said, I'm no longer replying to you directly because you have proven that you are incapable of forming valid arguments without constant deflection. It's so sad to be honest. I actually agreed with you on some things but it doesn't matter now. Deflect all you want, but there will come a time where #45's actions will cause something awful to happen and I could only hope you wouldn't look at the destruction he causes and say, "Well Hillary and Obama did..." If you do, you're exactly who I think you are.

Yes, in fact I DO want to go there....but not where YOU'RE going. In case you weren't paying attention this thread is about President TRUMP and the failures that have built up to his first 100 days in office.

Please stick to the topic. Feel free to talk about former President Obama by starting a different thread.  laugh

Also- if you do want to deflect criticism leveled on Trump, or want to defend him in some way, please stop falling into the non-sequitur of listing the failings of Democrats like Hillary or Obama. Don't be intentionally dense. It's like saying- don't jail me for stealing bread- that guy over there stole even more bread than I did. Please.  Roll Eyes

You made this thread and said this LONG before he even became President, so it's no surprise, and also nonsense. You fail to recognize that Trump was never even a Republican or a Democrat. He only ran as a Republican because it would be the easiest path.

Since the fallout in the 1960's Spy agencies haven't been spying as you think. Without a FISA warrant they can't spy on US citizens and that is not easy to get and impossible against non-terrorist/non-Agents of a Foreign power. Those that do fall under that category within the continental US fall under the FBI and should. This has thwarted many terrorist attacks. Many are unreport because it remains in the Secret realm. Problem with people like you and Snowden is that you look at those documents and glean over what these agencies can do and not their policies, active EO's, amendments, rulings, and statutes that govern the conduct of their spy/war powers. The information is there and extremely boring since it is written in the language only lawyers can understand in a single read. This is why laymen people miss this and Snowden would have passed over this since it in itself is not collected information that he was targeting. I will not source the documents since spilled information maintains its classification markers and releasing classified information is highly illegal. It's is treason. There are people who have abused the power given to them and spied on US citizens. They are all in prison for the rest of their lives. You don't hear about this because they are tried in a FISA court since normal courts can't hear cases involving classified information.

Whistle-blower? Snowden committed treason! There are channels in place for whistle-blowers to take without compromising our government, our people, and our war efforts. Whistle-blowers do not release TS information to our enemies or place it into a forum that our enemies can observe. This is why the fight against ISIS and other groups became more difficult. They knew how to thwart our efforts. We were hit financially and countries like china was made privy to our intelligence defense infrastructure. He shattered the trust of the people with half-truths. Whistle-blowers do not devastate their own country.

The intelligence network was expanding and should continue to do so. You can't imagine the number of threats overseas that have been thwarted and when a president is made privy to this kind of information they will never dissolve these institutions.

The  advancement of Gays has always been political, religious, everything. How does one give rights to a group of oppressed people without pressing it politically? His position kept growing and so it remained political.

The no-bid contracts was obvious from the start to be a failure. Every watchdog group that observed this said it was going to be impossible.

People are too naive and have opinions about things they know nothing about. It's crushing to know that it's stuff like this that spreads like wildfire because the truth is too boring and tedious to notice.

It's amazing how liberals always insist that they control everything, including postings in this section. 

I still find it funny how they never want to talk about the lies their god told everyone.  "Yeah, but Obama is god, so we have to ignore his lies."

It shouldn't be a surprise to anyone that his approval ratings are low, he wasn't elected with massive popular support and the left has been trying to sabotage his presidency since day 1.

It seems to me that his approval rates haven't changed much since January, with fewer people disapproving his presidency now.

I don't think performance is necessarily the key metric for public perception, Trump might end up being a very good or very bad president in four years, but a significant shift in perception will be a matter people abandoning their doomsday mentality and judging his performance through the same lenses as they looked at Obama's performance.

 While I will agree with that, I think it's a HUGE mistake to assume popularity necessarily means "correct".

More Americans think President Trump is doing a poor job than for any other recent president.

All unofficial pools are inaccurate by default. The participants are 'chosen' (by demography) and do not reflect the overall opinions of the real population.

The same reason why Trump wins while 95% polls conduct by major news outlet claimed he never had a chance.

The poll did accurately choose the more popular candidate , it just wasn't effective at segmenting those sample populations into electoral groups and proportioning actually voting turnout capacity.

You're stating ratings without even providing a source. That's dumb.

The best source for ratings is Reuters, who correctly predicted Trump's win, unlike any other, because it was based on a legit poll.

CNN did a poll that said Clinton had a 98% chance of winning.

Reuter's shows Trump at just over 50% now, higher than on election day.

Quit trying to delegitimize the Truth to make yourself feel better.

His ratings are much higher than you want to act like.

First of all, being president is not a popularity contest. 
We saw during the campaigns how inaccurate the polls are.  I think the main reason for that is that the polls are conducted in the heavily populated city centers - which is the only places where Trump was not popular.  If you look at a map of counties that voted for Trump in the election, Trump won by a massive landslide of counties, but because of the liberals in the highly populated city centers, the results look much different.   It is interesting that the map of areas that Hillary won corresponds almost Exactly with the areas of highest crime rates. 

The liberals are like babies who have had their pacifier (Obama) taken away.  They cannot accept that they have a new daddy who is not going to give them their lollipops and rattles.

Fake News... the riots have gone into a slumber. People are accepting that he's the legitimate President, and you are just trying to sew discord and undermine him because you just can't let it go. He won. Ok? He's the Commander in Chief now. Ok? If he was really doing so poorly, with reducing the debt, to creating new jobs... than you would think the riots would only grow stronger. But that is not the reality of the situation. The reality is that a sense of normalcy is coming back and things are settling down now that the evil witch Hillary has been knocked off her thrown and her criminal behavior is laid bare for the world to see, as well as the democratic plantation, with all it's corrupt emails that prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are criminals. Who cares who hacked them? What matters is that the hacks revealed the Truth about them - they are horrible people who committed horrible crimes. They want to blame Trump and Russia and whoever they can. The fact you all try to evade and cannot swallow is that they did in fact commit horrible crimes against the people of this nation and you are simply flabbergasted and unable to accept the actual Truth. The polls mean nothing, even if they are a True reflection (which they're not). Polls are almost ALWAYS fake.
