When asked to grade President Trump's first 100 days in office, not even his base can give him perfect marks, a new Politico/Morning Consult poll has found.
In regards to his overall performance, voters typically graded Trump along partisan lines: 16 percent gave him an A, 23 percent a B, 17 percent a C, 13 percent a D, and 24 percent an F. Republicans, naturally, saw Trump a bit rosier: 76 percent said he would continue to improve in office.
But that doesn't mean they're impressed so far. "There's a persistent media narrative that President Trump can do no wrong among his base of supporters," said Morning Consult's co-founder Kyle Dropp. "But this polling suggests that, at the very least, many of his voters see room for improvement. Forty-two percent of Trump voters grade his first 100 days a B and another 23 percent give him a C or worse."
Trump's lowest score came in the category of health care, where only 9 percent of all voters and 16 percent of Trump voters gave him an A. Trump also didn't do well in an assessment of if he's "drained the swamp": Just 10 percent gave him an A on fulfilling that campaign promise. Thirty-two percent of voters gave Trump an F on climate change, and 21 percent gave him an F on his most talked-up issue, the economy.
The poll was conducted between April 13-15, surveying 1,992 registered voters. The margin of error is plus or minus 2 percent. The 100th day of Trump's presidency will be complete on April 29. See the full results here.
