Trump Broken All Records of Disapproval in the First 8 days in WH

 In normal times, it takes American presidents hundreds of days before they reach a majority disapproval rating. 
This has been the case for the last five presidents - with Bill Clinton being the previous record holder after taking 573 days to have more than 50 per cent of Americans disapprove of his presidency.
But Donald Trump, the billionaire businessman, TV star and now US president, has smashed this record after his victory on a wave of anti-establishment anger. 
It has taken just eight days for him to gain a majority disapproval rating, according to Gallup polling, with 51 per cent of Americans saying they disapproved of the President on 28 January 2016.

Trump's first week in office has caused controversy and international outcry after a raft of executive orders has seen immigration halted from seven Muslim-majority countries, the unravelling of Obamacare, the withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal and the blocking of funding for groups that perform abortions.
He attacked the media for saying (truthfully) that Obama's inauguration crowd size was larger than his own, after millions of people around the world took to the street on the Women's Marchone day into his presidency.
The unprecedented week in American politics has helped Trump break the record for the shortest amount of time for a president to reach a majority disapproval rating.
Compared to his eight days, it took Barack Obama 936 days and George W. Bush 1,205 days to see over half the country disapprove of them.
The Republican managed to win November's US election by claiming certain key swing states in order to clinch the presidency, despite losing the popular vote by 2.9 million ballots.
This may go some of the way to explain why his approval rating is 24 points lower than Barack Obama’s when he was just eight days into his presidency.

Obama’s average approval rating was 48 per cent - lower than the last five presidentsAverage approval rating Presidents of the USAObamaBush  How does Trump compare to other presidents before they took office? Even before his inauguration his approval ratings were the lowest of any president in two decades. According to Gallup, the last three presidents had approval ratings of at least 65 per cent during their presidential transitions - significantly higher than Trump's. Some 75 percent of America's approved of the way Obama handled his transition, while 65 per cent approved of Bush and 67 per cent approved of Clinton. 
This compares to Trump, whose transition was approved of by 48 per cent of Americans - while another 48 per cent disapprove. 
According to Gallup, one key reason Trump's transition approval lags behind his predecessors' is because the opposition is far more critical of him.
Before his inauguration, Gallup said: "Trump still has time to turn the tide and avoid starting his presidency with the lowest public support in Gallup's polling history, but that would largely entail gaining the support of independents and, in particular, Democrats - most of whom appear reluctant to back him."
