WASHINGTON, U.S. - No American president in the country’s history since 1953 has received such low average approval ratings for the first three months in office, that Trump has managed to achieve.> BNN

As the new president closes in on the crucial 100 day mark - new polls show that his average has hit record lows. 

A recently released Gallup poll showed that Trump averaged a job approval rating of 41 percent since his January 20 inauguration.

This figure, the poll shows is 14 percent lower than any other president in Gallup's polling history.

Bill Clinton had set the previous low of 55 percent. 

The poll further shows that the average first-quarter rating among post-World War II presidents elected to their first term is 61 percent.

John Kennedy's was the highest at 74 percent.

According to Gallup, first quarter presidential approval ratings for Kennedy stood at 74 percent, followed by Dwight Eisenhower, at 71 percent, Jimmy Carter at 69 percent, Barack Obama at 63 percent, Richard Nixon at 62 percent, Ronald Reagan at 60 percent, George W. Bush at 58 percent, George H.W. Bush at 57 percent, Bill Clinton at 55 percent and now Donald Trump at 41 percent.

The numbers are measured by Gallup Daily tracking from January 20 to April 19.

Trump’s supremacy

Since his January 20 inauguration, Trump's approval rating has ranged from a low of 35 percent to a high of 46 percent. 

In the most recent rating recorded between April 17 and 19 - Trump’s approval stood at 43 percent.

However, Trump is popular among his own party - his numbers here are equal to other presidents.

About 87 percent Republicans on an average approve of the job Trump is doing. 

The Gallup poll said, before Trump, the average first-quarter approval rating among those who identified with the president's party had been 83 percent.

The approval ratings for other presidents, in their first quarter among their own party stood at Obama gaining 90 percent approval, G.W. Bush at 89 percent, Trump at 87 percent, Eisenhower at 86 percent, Kennedy at 86 percent, Reagan at 83 percent, Nixon at 82 percent, Carter at 79 percent, G. H. W. Bush at 78 percent and Clinton at 78 percent.

However, Trump's approval ratings are dismal amongst Democrats.

Only 9 percent of Democrats reportedly approve of the job Trump has done so far.

This is nearly 20 points lower than any other president received from supporters of the opposition party.

Approval ratings for other presidents in the first quarter among opposition party stood at Eisenhower with 61 percent, Kennedy with 58 percent, Nixon with 50 percent, Carter with 54 percent, Reagan with 43 percent, G.H.W. Bush with 42 percent, G.W. Bush with 32 percent, Obama with 30 percent, Clinton with 28 percent and Trump with a meagre 9 percent. 

Meanwhile, two new polls this week, from Marist and the Pew Research Center, pegged Trump’s approval rating at a lowly 39 percent.
