Trump’s approval rating just dropped to an all-time low


President Trump’s approval rating has sunk to an all-time low as Americans fret over his signature tax-code overhaul, which they believe will enrich Trump and the wealthy while hurting the middle class, according to a new poll.

Just 35 percent of Americans say they like the job Trump is doing overall — one point below his previous low of 36 percent, according to CNN.

Fifty-nine percent disapprove and 6 percent had no opinion, the poll shows.

The dismal figures make Trump the least-liked first-year president in recent history — all first-timers going back to Dwight D. Eisenhower had at least 49 percent approval by December of their first year in office, CNN noted.

Trump’s has yet to edge above 45 percent.

The poll was part of a larger look at how Americans are perceiving the tax bill being ushered through Congress.

Fifty-five percent oppose the reform — which most people surveyed believe will help the rich rather than middle-class taxpayers — up 10 points from last month, according to poll data.

Tax reform’s share of supporters has also grown from 31 percent to 33 percent as fewer people registered having “no opinion” this month versus in November.

Most Americans — 65 percent — also believe Trump’s family will personally benefit from the revised tax code, while just 5 percent don’t.

One quarter of respondents said the Trumps’ situation would stay the same, and 7 percent had no opinion.

And 73 percent of those asked said he should release his taxes like presidents before him, while 23 percent disagreed.

Research firm SSRS surveyed 1,001 adults between Dec. 14-17. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.8 percentage points.
