Trump lashes out at Media House for conducting polls again

President Donald Trump's approval rating fell to a record low of 37 percent, according to the latest Gallup tracking poll Saturday, with only 37 percent of the people approving of the president's performance, compared to the 58 percent who did not.

Gallup's Presidential Job Approval Center, which has tracked approval rates for every president since Harry Truman, shows another dip in approval for the new president, going down to 40 percent.

The numbers are almost the exact reverse of what former president Barack Obama received on his way out of office, with Gallup reporting 59 percent approving and just 37 percent disapproving, for the time period of January 16-19. A majority of young adults - 57 percent - see Trump's presidency as illegitimate, including about three-quarters of blacks and large majorities of Latinos and Asians, the GenForward poll found.

President Donald Trump returns to the White House on March 15, 2017 in Washington, D.C.

Unsurprisingly the response to Trump's tweet was less than forgiving.

This bill has as one of its centerpieces a tax-cut for investors that would primarily benefit people making over $250,000 a year. Republicans argue that work requirements better prepare participants to transition off government assistance and into jobs.

His job approval rating dropped significantly from the previous week, according to Gallup. "And obviously America wanted him more than Hillary Clinton", said Rebecca Gallardo, a 30-year-old nursing student from Kansas City, Missouri, who voted for Trump.

With this, he even showed his inclination towards Fox News, saying that their poll prediction had much higher ratings for Trump.

Trump's falling approval numbers come after a trying week for his administration, following the president's allegations former President Barack Obama had approved the wiretapping of Trump Towers and just ahead of the Republican rollout of the replacement bill for the Affordable Care Act.

Of course, this number is still way down from only six days after the 2017 Presidential Inauguration on January 20, where President Trump sat at a almost 60 percent total job approval rating from a Rasmussen poll of likely USA voters.

President Trump again targeted CNN Monday, tweeting surprise that the network still conduct its own polling despite its 2016 election polls being "a WAY OFF disaster".
