Poll: Only 2 percent of Trump supporters regret voting for him

As President Trump nears his 100th day in office, a new ABC News/Washington Post poll has found that most disapprove of his performance yet few of his voters regret casting their ballot for him.

The survey, conducted with around 1,000 adults in the U.S. between April 17 and 20, found that 53 percent disapprove of the way Trump is handling his job as president while 42 percent approve.

ABC News reports that the number marks "the lowest approval rating at this point of any president in polls since 1945."

However, people who voted for Trump were asked if they regretted the decision or if they thought it was the right thing to do in that election, and only 2 percent expressed regret. Meanwhile, 96 percent maintained that it was the right thing to do.

Nevertheless, half of poll respondents disapprove of his proposed government spending changes, 61 percent disapprove of Trump giving his daughter and son-in-law major positions in his administration, and 58 percent say the president is out of touch with the concerns of most people in the United States today.

Meanwhile, 56 percent feel that he has done nothing, little, or not very much in his first 100 days.

Trump has taken to Twitter to preemptively defend his first 100 days, saying, "No matter how much I accomplish during the ridiculous standard of the first 100 days, & it has been a lot (including S.C.), media will kill!"

And when White House press secretary Sean Spicer was asked about the milestone in a recent press briefing, he said, in part, "I think what you've seen out of this White House is a very robust agenda of activity. There's a lot of executive orders that I think the President has been pleased with...I think when you look at immigration, in particular, we see a very significant drop at the border. I think on jobs there's been a lot of activity that we've been very proud to see America manufacturing and job creation."
