According to the latest Quinnipiac Poll, President Trump’s approval rating is currently at 41%, with a disapproval rating of 55%.
Meanwhile, the average across all major polls shows that he has a slightly better favorability rating at 43.4% against 53.3% disapproval.
He has been unable to break free from the low forties approval range, with his highest being 45.5% across all polls, shortly after his inauguration on January 23, 2017, when his disapproval rating was 41.3%.
At the same point in their presidencies, former President Obama had a 48.5% approval rating while former President Bush had 66.3%.
The most recent approval ratings are fresh from the release of the Mueller report and the conclusion of the investigation, which has done very little to change President Trump’s poll numbers, with voters holding largely the same views on the President before the release of the report.
On the Democratic side, Joe Biden holds 32.8% among voters, a 13.4% lead from the closest candidate, Bernie Sanders, who holds an average 19.4%, with Warren and Buttigieg trailing with 8.4% each. The former vice president’s surge in the polls comes after he announced his decision to run for president and received backing from major Obama donors, racking in a whopping $6.3 million on his first day.
In a Trump-Biden matchup, Biden leads with an average 47.8% against Trump’s 40.3% across all polls.
