Besides, Being President Is Stressful

Donald Trump’s approval rating is worse than at least a dozen past presidents.

According to FiveThirtyEight updated on Wednesday, his approval rating was still an unimpressive 33 percent. Disapproval was 59 percent.

That’s lower than the other least popular recent American presidents, including:

Richard M. Nixon, who played a major role in the Watergate scandal and

Gerald Ford, who granted a controversial presidential pardon to Nixon and

Lyndon B. Johnson, who failed to lead the U.S. out of the Vietnam War.

According to the Post, with his 59% disapproval rating, Trump’s approval margin is -22 — the only president to have a negative margin in over 50 years!

Former President Barack Obama had a 57% approval rating and 40% disapproval rating — a margin of +17 — at the same time during his tenure in November 2009.
