Trump approval rating lowest recorded for incoming president

RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA TV) - President Donald Trump set a historic mark this week but it is doubtful he wants to own it.

In a new Quinnipiac University poll, Trump reportedly has just a 36 percent job approval rating.

This, according to Gallup, is the first elected U.S. president to start his term with a job approval rating below 50 percent.

Of course, this is just since the Dwight D. Eisenhower administration in 1953, when Gallup first started taking surveys on presidential approval ratings.
