The latest released Thursday shows Trump at a historic low compared with prior presidents in their first weeks in office.
The poll found just 39 percent approve of his job performance while 56 percent disapprove.

2. The Rasmussen Poll, which is always skewed toward Conservatives. It's a 'friendly' poll.

7. I don't know if he can go quite that low without a recession. There are too many people
who believe that he is somehow making America great again.
I can see him dropping to 35 percent if there are a few more scandals.
