A pair of polls released Sunday showed President Donald Trump approaching his 100th day in office with the lowest level of support any modern president.
Forty-two percent of people in an ABC News/Washington Post poll said they approved of Trump's performance so far, while 53% said they disapproved. An NBC/Wall Street Journal poll had 40% of respondents saying they approved of Trump and 54% saying they disapproved.
But the bad news wasn't Trump's alone. The ABC/Washington Post poll found significant majorities said both the Democratic and Republican parties were "out of touch" with the concerns of most Americans.
Sixty-seven percent of respondents said the Democratic Party was out of touch, as did 62% for the Republican Party. Less than a third said either party was "in touch."
Trump fared slightly better than the parties, with 58% saying he was out of touch.
Despite Trump's low approval numbers, the poll showed him retaining support among his base, with 96% of people who said they voted for him saying they would do so again. The poll showed only 85% of those who voted for Hillary Clinton would do so again, with most of those who would not saying they would either go with a third-party candidate or not vote at all.
That difference in remaining support for the two candidates would mean Trump would best Clinton 43 to 40% in a hypothetical rematch today. In the actual election Clinton failed to achieve an electoral victory but outpaced Trump by almost 2.9 million votes, with 65,853,516 (48.18%) to his 62,984,825 (46.09%) according to the Federal Election Commission.
Trump seized on the poll's findings in a pair of tweets Sunday afternoon saying: "New polls out today are very good considering that much of the media is FAKE and almost always negative. Would still beat Hillary in ... popular vote. ABC News/Washington Post Poll (wrong big on election) said almost all stand by their vote on me & 53% said strong leader."
Gallup's historical presidential approval numbers showed most presidents were near the height of their popularity in the beginning of their first terms.
Thirty-four percent of the ABC/Washington Post poll respondents said they disapproved of Trump including his daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner in his administration.
And a majority, 54%, said they did not have a problem with Trump working out of Mar-a-lago, his private club in Florida.
The ABC News/Washington Post poll surveyed 1,004 adults over April 17-20 and had a margin of error ±3.5% points. The NBC/WSJ poll surveyed 900 adults over that same period and had a margin of error ±3.3% points.
