A lot has happened over the last four months. On the policy side, we’ve seen everything from tariff threats to Syrian strikes. While at the White House, chaos reigns supreme with cabinet shake-ups and new legal troubles for President Trump’s personal attorney.
Yet, voter opinions of the president have remained pretty stable overall. Since January 2018, the president’s overall job approval ratings have averaged between 39 and 42 percent, and his disapproval ratings have stayed in the narrow range of 53 to 56 percent.
Views of the president are hardened. It will take something extraordinary to change those perceptions.
