United States President Donald Trump has never had it worse in the Oval Office.

On 18 March 2017, his approval ratings were at a net -21, worse than any day since he took office on 20 January.


It is the latest in a tawdry string of polling ratings from Gallup - the president's average net approval stands at a lethargic -9.85.

In fact, Donald Trump has only been in positive figures for two days, when he stood at +1 on 24 and 25 January.

For perspective Barack Obama averaged a +2.36 rating for his presidency, based on Gallup weekly polls.

Moreover at this point in his presidency Obama was enjoying a popularity honeymoon.

The comparison makes from grim reading for the Trump administration:


Trump is in his honeymoon.

The worst is probably yet to come.
