For sleazy Trump's polling through Oct. 13, 2019 (3rd year), he stands @ 39%.


For the best president of the 21st century, Obama's number for 2011 was 44%.

I don't see Trump having these numbers the first week of November, 2020, do you? Because Trump has never had these numbers...

You can find a single point to make any kind of claim. I posted an aggregate.

At the same point in his tenure Obama has lost nearly 30 points and had lower approval than Trump.

What a ridiculous comparison.

Obama was handed the worst recession in half a century -- of course his approval took a beating in the early years.

Trump, on the other hand, was gifted a robust, expanding economy.

He has no one but himself to blame for these dismal numbers.

The economy bottomed out in Q4 2008 and started improving before Obama took office, the recession ended when the economy started growing again a few months into Obama's first term. Obama's numbers would have went up instead of down if his horrible policies hadn't tamped down the recovery.

Trump wasn't handed a robust economy, it was an economy in decline. The job creation rate topped out in 2014 and was in decline. Consumer confidence peaked in Jan 2015 and was in decline. The economic growth rate had plummeted to an anemic 1.6% in 2016.

Trump's numbers have been steady since he was elected and are significantly higher than Obama's at the same point.
