Donald Trump's approval rating dips as he nears 100 days in office

Creating a strong team in White House same as Trump Tower is much harder.

Survey takers also aligned with Trump when it came to media coverage of the president's tenure.

But what has he achieved from his own 100-day action plan to Make America Great Again?

Once a Trump supporter, always a Trump supporter? A High Point University poll conducted in February put Trump's approval rating among North Carolina residents at 36 percent.

But the onetime anti-establishment candidate who promised to "drain the swamp" in Washington appears to have recognised - with a mix of naivete and craftiness - that he has one of the most hard jobs in the world.

Some of the measures he vowed to accomplish have been stalled in Congress or blocked by federal courts.


H.W. Brands, a history professor at the University of Texas at Austin, said Trump is learning that “the world is the way it is for a whole bunch of complicated reasons.

Three months into President Donald Trump's term, North Carolinians aren't too impressed by what they've seen so far.

He ran through the president's many promises during the campaign trail.

Who to turn to for advice? The institute, which releases poll data periodically, found that young Americans' approval of Obama hovered between 41 percent and 58 percent throughout his time in office. Fifty-one percent disapprove. The remaining 8 percent didn't know or didn't say. Ivanka Trump has a 47 percent favorable rating (versus 32 percent unfavorable) among those called by the Elon Poll.

In the choice of his teams as well as in some negotiations, a sort of "presidentialisation" seems to be unfolding - albeit haltingly.

And 54% said they did not have a problem with Trump working out of Mar-a-Lago in Florida.


Trump has never really had either.

On China, Russia and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, his about-faces have - to some extent - reassured some Americans, and some of Washington's allies.

Voter assessments of Trump do not appear to be improving since the inauguration.

But his approach also includes risks.

"This is the protection of the nation from foreign terrorists entering into the United States". "Up till now the president has done exactly the reverse, and he didn't intend to, but he did". "There are some things I agree with President Trump on, and there are some things that I disagree with the president on", Flake said to those in attendance as some in the crowd shouted, "Shame on you!" "I tend to be right". That 30 was more than anyone including Roosevelt, who only signed 9, the White House pointed out in listing the numbers for a slew of predecessors.

The president has blasted the tradition of assessing a president's job performance based on their first 100 days in office.


Trump added that those assessing his early days need to take into account that his is "a different kind of a presidency".
