Opinion polling on the administration of Donald Trump has been regularly taken by universities, media outlets and survey companies since the start of his presidency. Public sentiment on a number of his key actions and proposals has also been tracked. Presidential approval ratings have revealed Trump to be one of the least popular presidents in the history of modern opinion polling as of his second year in office. Polls also reveal that President Trump receives broad support from members of his own party while receiving lesser ratings from Democrats and independents. President Trump's current ratings among partisans are similar to his predecessor Barack Obama's ratings among Democrats and Republicans, but are lower among independents.
