    Poll: Americans Think Trump's First 100 Days Is Fair, Poor

    As President Trump nears his 100th day in office, the majority of Americans disapprove of the job he's doing, according to a new national poll by NBC News and The Wall Street Journal. (Published Sunday, April 23, 2017)

    About two-thirds of Americans give President Donald Trump poor or middling marks for his first 100 days in office, including a plurality who say he's off to a "poor start," according to results from a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

    Forty-five percent of respondents in the survey believe Trump is off to a poor start, with 19 percent saying it's been "only a fair start," NBC News reported. That's compared to a combined 35 percent who think the president's first three months in office have been either "good" or "great."

    Trump's overall job-approval rating stands at 40 percent—down four points from February. It's the lowest job-approval rating for a new president at this 100-day stage in the history of the NBC/WSJ poll.

    The NBC/WSJ poll was conducted April 17-20 of 900 adults, including more than 400 who were interviewed by cell phone. The poll's overall margin of error is plus-minus 3.3 percentage points.
