    fall to one's low numbers (idiom?)

    Donald J. Trump
    @realDonaldTrump
    Putin has become a big hero in Russia with an all time high popularity. Obama, on the other hand, has fallen to his lowest ever numbers. SAD

    Re: fall to one's low numbers (idiom?)

    It is not an idiom, it is a plainly descriptive sentence. Public figures are subject to popularity and approval polls, expressed in numbers. Low approval ratings are low numbers of people who approve of his work. 55% approval is high. 10% approval is low.
