According to ABC's writeup, Trump therefore has the lowest approval numbers of any president at this point in their term since 1945. The rest of the ABC News/Washington Post poll respondents said they would either vote for a third party or not vote at all. For instance, President Barack Obama polled at a 69 percent approval, with a 26 percent disapproval, during his first 100 days in 2009.

"No administration has accomplished more in the first 90 days", Trump said April 18 before an audience of manufacturing workers and technical students at the headquarters of Snap-On, a Wisconsin-based manufacturing company.

Trump enjoys a 51 percent approval of likely U.S. voters, a divergence with other polls that limit their questions to registered voters, including those who do not plan to vote in the next election, according to a survey by Rasmussen Reports published on Monday.

The poll also contained some positive results for Trump: 96 percent of those who voted for him in the election said they would do it again - higher than the 85 percent of Hillary Clinton voters who said they would support her again. Democrats and even some Republicans have said they would not vote for a budget with funding for the border wall in it, and with control of both houses of Congress in Republican hands, it would be challenging if the government did shut down for Republicans to explain how that happened on their watch. "Would still beat Hillary in.popular vote", Trump wrote.

"The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 51 percent of Likely US voters approve of President Trump's job performance", a press release explaining the poll stated. In February, 44 percent had approved of the president.

That difference in remaining support for the two candidates would mean Trump would best Clinton 43 to 40% in a hypothetical rematch today.

Despite his previous disdain for executive orders as a mechanism for governance, putting his pen to more of them is apparently just what Trump plans to do in the walkup to the 100-day marker. And overall, the Real Clear Politics average of popular vote polls had Clinton up by just 3.3 percentage points heading into election day.
