Chart of the day Disapproving Trump’s rule by fiat

From Gallup:


More from their report:

The perception that Trump is moving too fast is likely based on reaction to the continuing stream of memoranda and executive orders he has issued in his first 10 days in office. The most controversial of these have focused on immigration and refugees, to which Americans’ initial response is significantly more negative than positive.

Between 36% and 42% of Americans approve of suspending the Syrian refugee program, temporarily halting entry into the U.S. for most people from seven Muslim-majority countries, and ordering the construction of a wall between the U.S. and Mexico. These approval scores are slightly below Trump’s overall job approval rating of 43%.

Although there are some differences in approval of Trump’s orders, Americans’ reactions to them — and their overall evaluation of Trump as president at this point — are broadly similar. The executive orders receive majority disapproval, ranging from 55% who oppose the immigration restriction to 60% who oppose building a wall between the U.S. and Mexico. Fifty-two percent disapprove of Trump’s overall job performance.
