“Stumbling out of the blocks, President Donald Trump is considered a divider not a uniter, flunking on honesty, empathy and level headedness, while his predecessor sees his legacy burnished by better and better numbers every polling cycle,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

President Donald Trump’s net approval rating dropped by eight points in his first week in the Oval Office, according to Gallup.

On January 22, two days after being sworn in, 45 percent of respondents said they disapproved of Trump’s job performance and 45 percent approved. By January 27, the percentage who approved dipped to 42.
