Majority of Americans disapprove of Donald Trump's job performance, poll reveals

From imposing a travel ban on people from seven countries, predominantly Muslim dominated, to ordering a construction of a wall along the border with Mexico, Donald Trump has ruffled too many feathers. About 48 percent of those surveyed said they viewed the president's performance unfavorably, compared to 44 percent who approved of Trump's first 100 days thus far.

President Trump's job approval rating is at a record low, with almost half of respondents saying they disagree with his performance in the White House so far, a new poll shows. Bush, Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush all had significantly positive net approval ratings at the outset of their terms.

Trump's demeanour has also received a heavily negative rating, with 18 percent of Americans deeming it right, while 55 percent of the people rank his temperament as dismal.

Additionally, 53 percent of respondents told pollsters they agreed with the statement that the 'news media and other elites are exaggerating the problems with the Trump Administration because they are uncomfortable and threatened with the kind of change that Trump represents'.

President Donald Trump let the world know on Saturday evening that he is going to be the first President in 30 years to skip the White House Correspondents Dinner. By contrast, 45 percent said they disagreed with that assessment.

Despite the particularly rancorous first month of the Trump administration, the president has made one move that reflects a relatively routine breakdown of public opinion: His nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

"It's very risky because they're banking on the fact that the media as a group is unpopular, which tends to be true, but people are not liking the tone that's coming out of the administration", Miringoff said. But Spicer said he will also talk about his efforts "to be a president that brings people together, that unites them". But Democrats say more people are coming forward to compete as candidates against Republican office holders.
