Trump’s first Presidential approval rating low

Days after his inauguration, President Donald Trump of the United States of America has set record for receiving the lowest initial job approval rating and the highest disapproval rating.
Trump is the first elected U.S. president to start out with a job approval rating below 50% in the history of Gallup surveys, which date back to Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1953. Just 45% of respondents said they approve of the job Trump is doing, while 45% disapprove, according to a Gallup poll.
By comparison, former President Barack Obama began his term with a 68% approval rating, according to Gallup polling. George W. Bush began with a 57% approval rating. Former Presidents George H.W. Bush and Ronald Reagan had 51% approval ratings at the start of their terms, but they had much lower disapproval ratings–just 6% and 13%, respectively.
