Presidents With Low Approval Numbers

For John, BLUFPresident Trump isn't the only one with low numbers.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

Here is the lede from the Reuters 3 August article:
French President Emmanuel Macron heads into the summer break faced with falling popularity ratings after tough debates in parliament over labour reform and a public ethics law, a standoff with the military and cuts to housing assistance.

A YouGov poll published on Thursday showed 36 percent of voters held a favourable view of the 39-year-old, a fall of 7 points on the previous month and echoing the downward trend seen in other surveys.

Centrist Macron, France's youngest leader since Napoleon, was elected in May on a promise to usher in sweeping economic and social reforms to haul France out of its economic malaise. The main concern of voters was the same as before the election - unemployment - the YouGov survey showed.

Gee, 36% approval.  Right down there with President Trump.  And employment an issue.  No wonder the two Presidents bonded.
