President Donald Trump’s approval rating is not looking good.

Since Trump took office, he has garnered the lowest polling numbers of any American president at similar points in their terms. According to FiveThirtyEight, Trump’s approval rating is currently hovering near 35%.

Some Americans are thinking about jumping ship to neighboring Canada.

A recent report from MoneySense, a Toronto-based personal finance website, looks at the “Best Places to Live for New Canadians.” To compile the list, it studied 219 Canadian cities and towns and ranked them on different parameters of well-being, focusing on low unemployment rates, high percentage of immigrant populations, and low monthly rent.
