Trump is the least popular Christmastime President in the modern era

What do you get the billionaire leader-of-the-free-world who has enough power to have access to pretty much anything he could ever want? Well, in the case of President Donald Trump, he could really use a couple percentage points added to his approval rating.

Heading into the Christmas holiday, the former reality TV star had the worst approval rating in the history of modern polling for any president at this point in their first term. In fact, no other president in recent memory was even particularly close to Trump's levels of popularity.

The tracker from data-centric website FiveThirtyEight pegged Trump's average approval rating Saturday at just 37.1 percent. Dating all the way back to President Harry Truman in 1945, at Day 337 of their first term every president had an approval rating at least ten percentage points better than where Trump stands now at the same point in his first term, according to FiveThirtyEight. Trump is defying a grace period of sorts in which presidents are typically handed decent popularity from Americans at the start of their term.

2. Havent seen one good calendar of him

I have been calendar hunting last few weeks all over different stores and towns both conservative and liberal, saw a calendar of Obama a nice one and a count down to getting rid of Trump one.

Both of those in my conservative town. I live in a red city in Oregon.

No other political ones, its like they know people donít want to think or look at politics right now.
