         Ten weeks into Trump’s presidency, not much winning

WASHINGTON—Ten weeks into his presidency, Donald Trump hasn’t had an easy week yet.

Trump has hit regular high points—the nomination of a Supreme Court justice, a smooth speech to a joint session of Congress, an active deal-making role in health-care negotiations.

But they have each been punctured, within hours or days, by low points—courts blocking his travel restrictions, an early-morning tweet about wiretapping, and the collapse of those talks to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

‘Unusually low, unusually early.’

The result, as captured in Gallup polling, is a constant cycle of slips and rebounds for Trump. The collapse of the health-care bill last week helped pushed down his approval rating to 35% between Sunday and Tuesday, the all-time worst ratings for any president in his first year, Gallup found.
