U.S. President Donald Trump’s job approval rating is a mere 39%, with just over four months remaining for the Presidential elections. The Presidential job approval rating, based on the Gallup poll, is the percentage of respondents who answer “approve” for the question “Do you approve or disapprove of the way [President’s name] is handling his job as President?”.

1,240 days into his tenure, Mr. Trump’s approval rating has not crossed the 50% mark even once, the only President to hold that particular distinction among the last 14 Presidents for whom data was available. Moreover, incumbent Presidents who lost their bid for a second term had approval ratings below 40% just before the election, suggesting a correlation between electoral success and their approval ratings.

Though Harry Truman and Gerald Ford contested for a second term, the last available approval rating for them was more than five months away, and were hence not considered for this chart.
