Historical Approval Ratings Tracker


Automatically updated - published 18 December 2016


At this point, it’s no secret that Donald Trump is one of America’s least favorable presidents — but how does he actually stack up? Use the check boxes below to select which Presidents’ approval ratings you want to graph, then mouse over the interactive below for more information.

In contrast with our Trump Job Approval Poll Tracker the interactive here only uses polls by Gallup. This helps us benchmark approval in a properly comparative way; in 1950, the US didn’t have the 30 polling firms tracking Trump approval that we have today.
