The approval ratings of US President Donald Trump today reach a record low among voters, a day before the end of his term and the inauguration of the president-elect, Joe Biden, reported Prensa Latina.
According to a recent Gallup agency poll, only 34 percent of Americans endorse Trump's job as president, which is the lowest level since he took office in 2017.
Trump's average acceptance rate of 41 percent during his four years in office is four points lower than any of his predecessors in the White House in the Gallup polling era, the agency reported.
Trump is the first president to fail to achieve 50 percent citizen support at any time since the pollster began measuring approval of the presidential job in 1938.
Separately, an ABC News / Ipsos poll released Sunday revealed that a majority of Americans believe Trump should be removed from office.
The low level of support for Trump's work came less than two weeks after the Capitol was invaded on January 6 by a crowd of his supporters who contested the results of the presidential election.
This attack took place at a time when a joint session of the House of Representatives and the Senate was preparing to certify Biden's victory in the November 3 elections.
Following the attack on the legislative headquarters, experts agree that there is a feeling of rejection among broad sectors of politics and the general population of the northern nation.
On the political level, this reality is more strongly evidenced in the decision of the House of Representatives to approve the start of a political trial against the president, although the Senate has not yet set a date for the continuity of the process in that legislative body.
But for some experts, Trump's lack of popularity is also related to the rejection caused by some of his closest collaborators, including Mike Pompeo, whom The New York Times described yesterday as the worst secretary of state in history. of the northern country.
As the head of US diplomacy looks to his political future, his mandate is ridiculed by adversaries, and detested by a significant number of his own diplomats, the newspaper highlights.
As he tries to preserve his political future, Pompeo recently offered an idea of his legacy as one of the key figures "in the burned-out administration of President Trump," he adds.
Another recent survey, conducted by USA Today and the Suffolk Poll consultancy, revealed that 70 percent of Americans reject Trump because they believe that their country's democracy has weakened since the Republican leader took office in January 2017. The investigators noted that the poll revealed an anxious and embattled electorate, sharply divided after the November elections, and two-thirds of voters now say the country is headed in the wrong direction, a significant jump from previous inquiries.
