(CNS News) -- Data from Gallup show that four weeks prior to Barack Obama's election to a second term in November 2012, he had a job approval rating of 48%.  Today, four weeks prior to the 2020 presidential election, Donad Trump has a 46% job approval rating, according to Gallup. 

Gallup has been tracking presidential job approval for decades.


In its comparison chart, it shows that for President Trump, on day 1,347-1,349 into his first term, enjoys a job approval rating of 46%.

The same chart, for President Obama on day 1,347-1,349 into his first term, shows that he then enjoyed a job approval rating of 48%. 

After Obama was inaugurated to his second term in January 2013, his job approval rating started to fall, eventually reaching  a low of 40% on Dec. 16-22, 2013. It hit the 40% low again in March 10-16, 2014.
