A number of polls show that outgoing president Donald Trump is set to leave the office with the lowest approval rating of any modern president.
While Trumps’s approval rating has swayed between 35-45% throughout much of his time in the office, his ratings have been declining since November last year.
If the ratings continue to decline, Trump could leave office as the worst-rated modern-day president since Jimmy Carter.
At the time of this writing, according to statistical analysis site, FiveThirtyEight Trump has an approval rating of just 38%.

On January 17, A new poll released by CNN sees the president score even lower, with just 34% of respondents approving of Trump’s performance as president.
Pew Research Center released another poll on January 15 and found that just 29% of respondents think Trump did a good job as America’s leader.
In addition, 68% of people surveyed said they believe Trump should not continue to be a major national political figure in the US for many years to come.
The majority of respondents to CNN’s poll (54%) also decided in favor of removing Trump from office before January 20 for inciting the deadly riots at the US Capitol building on January 6.
Earlier this week, another poll by Politico showed that support for Trump within the Republican party had also fallen after the riots.
When asked whether respondents would vote for Trump if the 2024 US Presidential election was held today, 42% of Republican respondents said they would. This is a decrease from the 54% who said they would vote for him when the survey was first conducted in November.
