#Donald Trump: 54 percent disapproved his presidency: - Overall, 44 percent of respondents said they approve of Donald Trump's handling of the presidency which contrasts to the 54 percent who disapprove. These are figures that were similar to those recorded by the two previous CNN/ORC surveys which were made after his inauguration. However, 44 percent puts Trump at the bottom of the approval ratings received by newly elected presidents during their first #100 Days since the start of the modern polling era. The tycoon occupies that position with a wide margin of 11 points to Bill Clinton who himself is in second place. In his first 100 days, Mr. Trump issued more executive orders that Obama issued in a year.
