Trump Approval Rating By State 2020

The presidential job approval ratings in the U.S. were introduced in the late 1930s by George Gallup to gauge public support for the president during their term. Approval ratings are determined by polling given to a sample of people.

Like most surveys, poll results may be inaccurate due to samples that self-select. However, statisticians generally accept the approval rating as a factual indicator of the people’s feelings about the president.

As of April 2020, President Trump’s approval rate is 46.0% and his disapproval is at 49.6%.
