A new Washington Post/ABC News poll released Sunday sees President Trump's approval rating at a historic low as he reaches the half-year mark in his presidency. Just 36 percent of Americans approve of the job Trump is doing, which is 6 percent lower than his approval rating at the 100-day point. Trump's disapproval rating is 58 percent. The president tweeted this comment on the poll Sunday morning:
Former Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush both had approval ratings of 59 percent at this stage of their presidencies; the only president to come close to Trump's unpopularity was Gerald Ford, at 39 percent at the six-month mark.
