Calls 36% Approval â€œAlmost 40%â€
A new poll released today found that Donald Trump has the lowest six-month approval rating of any president in the past 70 years.
The ABC News/Washington Post poll found that only 36 percent of Americans approve of Trumpâ€™s job performance at or near the six-month mark, which as ABC pointed out is â€œdown six points from his 100-day mark, itself a low.â€
Gerald Ford, in 1975, is the closest to this level at 39%:

Trump, who is reportedly spending his third consecutive day watching the womenâ€™s golf tournament at his club in New Jersey, took to Twitter for the second time today to respond to the pollâ€™s publication.
â€œThe ABC/Washington Post Poll, even though almost 40% is not bad at this time,â€ the president wrote of the 36% approval rating, â€œwas just about the most inaccurate poll around election time!â€

As some have pointed out:
1- 36 is not really "almost" 40
2- 36 is the worst in 70 years
2- WaPo poll correctly predicted Clinton would win national popular vote https://t.co/LwZa2p8wx2
