TRUMP | Disapproval Exceeds 50%

Disapproval of Trump actions already passes 50 percent.

A majority of Americans say they do not approve of President Trump's actions as of Saturday, Jan. 28.

The Gallup Poll keeps a daily tab on the percentage of Americans who approve or disapprove of the job Donald Trump is doing as president. 

The tab is based on telephone interviews taken every day with approximately 1,500 adults throughout the United States.

Gallup claims its sample is reliably constructed and the margin of error is only ±3 percentage points. Margins of error are typically computed for the 95 percent confidence level, meaning once every 20 polls the error will exceed the margin, even if there are no flaws in the design of the survey.

In this case, the same survey has been conducted for many years, which makes it more useful and reliable. President Trump's approval ratings can be compared with  those of past presidents in the Gallup Presidential Job Approval Center.
