Donald Trump has struggled through the least popular honeymoon for a Presidency ever.

During his first 100 days in office he achieved the worst net approval rating a new President has ever polled with Gallup, at -24.

This makes him the least popular new president for at least 50 years.

View the chart below:


If you're confused about the colour coding - Trump is the one right at the bottom.

His lowest daily rating was measured on 28 March, when he polled at 35 per cent approval and 59 per cent disapproval, or -24 net.

His highest rating took place on 24 and 25 January, when he polled at 46 per cent approval and 45 per cent disapproval, or +1 net.

His highest net rating of +1, is still 14 points of the lowest rating for any other president since JFK.

This was a +14 net rating notched by Gerald Ford in November 1974.

For a President so obsessed with ratings, that's got to be a punch in the gut.​
