As President Donald Trump rapidly approaches his 100-day mark in the White House, let’s take a look at some of the grades he’s been given by voters.
A report card of Trump’s first few months in office finds opinions unsurprisingly fall along party lines — but there are some exceptions.
Trump has mostly fared well among his Republican base, receiving mostly A’s and B’s, in a new Politico/Morning Consult Poll. The president has, alternatively, struggled with Democrats receiving mostly D’s and F’s. But as Politico notes, “he isn’t earning straight A’s from his base.”
Forty-eight percent of self-identified Democrats have given Trump the grade of an F while 19 percent gave him a D, according to the poll. Most interestingly, forty-two percent of Trump voters only grade his first 100 days as a, and another 23 percent give him a C or worse.
Trump has clearly failed in certain areas with his base.
