(Before It's News)

President Donald Trump only needed 69 days to accomplish something Jimmy Carter, Richard Nixon, and George W. Bush took years to achieve: reach an approval rating of 35%.

In a brand new Gallup poll released Wednesday, Trump’s approval rating has plummeted to 35 percent. For context, the lowest approval rating of President Obama’s eight year tenure in the White House was 38 percent.

If Trump’s approvals plunge any lower, he will become one of just six presidents to do so, as Johnson and Reagan bottomed out at 35%.

Here’s a list of the presidents who hit 35% or lower in the Gallup approval poll compared with how many days it took them to get tho that point:

  • Trump – 69 days
  • Truman – 524 days
  • Reagan – 741 days
  • Carter – 851 days
  • H.W. Bush – 1,283 days
  • Nixon – 1,659 days
  • Johnson – 1,725 days
  • George W. Bush – 1,926 days

Trump’s popularity took a massive hit last week as he began to publicly support the wildly unpopular healthcare bill that many are calling “RyanCare.”

According to the Gallup poll, House Speaker Paul Ryan’s American Health Care Act (AHCA) was polling at around 17 percent before he was forced to pull the bill.

Trump’s approvals were also affected when more allegations came to light over alleged campaign ties to Russia, including an announcement from FBI Director James Comey that there was a pending investigation into whether or not any of his associates colluded with Russian agents to influence the 2016 presidential election.

The key for Trump is to deliver on the promises that got him elected. His approvals show that when he fails to deliver, he takes a hit. That will be crucial to watch over the next four years.
