A majority of Americans disapprove of President Trump’s work during his first week in the White House — breaking a record of how long it generally takes the majority of Americans to disapprove of a president.
On Saturday, 51 percent of Americans disapproved of Trump, a Gallup poll found.
The poll tracks daily approval ratings for Trump by surveying 1,500 Americans.
It took just eight days to reach these ratings. It took at least several hundred days for the majority of Americans to disapprove of past presidents.

Former President Barack Obama reached the 51 percent disapproval rating in August 2011 — years after he took office in 2009. It took more than 1,000 days for former President George W. Bush to reach that mark.
