Just 2% of Trump voters say they regret voting for him

25 April 2017

As Trump nears his 100th day in office, most polls show he has historically low approval ratings for a new president.

WH lists Syrian strikes and travel ban among first 100 days highlights.

NBC pointed out that at similar points in their presidencies, President Barack Obama had a 61% approval rating, while President George W. Bush had a 56% approval rating and President Bill Clinton's was at 52%.

Trump announced Saturday that he will mark his 100th day in office by "holding a BIG rally in Pennsylvania" on April 29 - the same day as the annual White House correspondents' dinner, which the president has declined to attend.

The ABC News/Washington Post poll notes that even though Trump has been very busy during his first few months in office, majorities believe that he does not possess the temperament and judgment needed to be effective in office.

However, a majority of those surveyed agreed that the 45th president is doing a good job when it comes to putting Americans back to work and also concerning his global dealings, but is was also noted that major popularity problems were discovered with his opposing party.

A Washington Post/ABC poll released on Sunday showed the new president with the lowest approval rating at this point of any president since the polling began in 1945 - 42% of respondents told pollsters they approved of his performance thus far, while 53% disapproved.

Sixty-two percent of Americans support the administration's recent military action in Syria; with 88 percent of Republicans and 43 percent of Democrats when looking at the support by party.

Nevertheless, Trump's supporters still stand behind him.

When looking at Trump's follow-through with what he proclaimed on the campaign trail, Americans have mixed reactions. 96 percent of Trump voters said they would vote for him again if the election were held today, while only 2 percent said they regret voting for him and 1 percent had no opinion.

Trump, who campaigned on a promise of instant disruption, indirectly acknowledged that change doesn't come quickly to Washington. The president showed just a 40 percent approval rating-a sharp contrast compared to previous presidents at the same stage of their term.
