Trump routinely denies that and says he captured the presidency by winning states such as MI and Wisconsin that Clinton may have taken for granted, reports the Associated Press. Did he cross a line?
While Monday's approval rating is the lowest it's been since he took office January 20, his approval rating has never been high. At a similar stage in 2009, Biden had a favorability rating of around 50 percent, before the number fell to 42 percent in September of that year. Trump also made the wild assertion that he was wiretapped by President Obama, a lie which was refuted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. But his tumultuous first two months in the White House show that poll respondents seem not to approve of his actions, which have resulted in protests, court cases, and Senate hearings.
Let's not beat around the bush, much of President Trump's recent slide in the polls is because of this now-infamous early Saturday morning tweet from March 4th.
According to the latest Gallup poll released this weekend, Trump's approval rating has now hit 37 percent, with his disapproval rating rising to 58 percent.
Trump may also be losing the confidence of the American people after peddling some outrageous lies that have seriously undermined his credibility.
In a poll last week the network reported his approval rating had slipped by five percent to 43%. "The need for my executive order is clear". But just 14 percent say they have a strongly favorable view of the Democrats.
It's not just the lack of approval, 37 percent now, but the active disapproval - a whopping 58 percent in the latest figures - that spells trouble for Trump.
