U.S. President Donald Trump has a lower approval rating than all four of The Squad, a group of progressive, Democratic congresswomen of color he told to "go back" to their ancestral homelands in a tweet, according to a new The Economist/YouGov poll.
Trump's net approval rating, excluding don't knows, was -11.
By comparison, The Squad—which includes Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley—who also all had negative approval ratings, were significantly better.
New York's Ocasio-Cortez's was -3, Minnesota's Omar was -6, Michigan's Tlaib was -3, and Massachusetts' Pressley was -3.
The four women had larger "don't know" answers than Trump, who has far greater name recognition among the wider American public.
The YouGov poll also shows that The Squad has better approval ratings than Trump among independents, though the gap between them is narrower.
Trump's net approval rating with independents is -12. »
