Donald Trump approval ratings: President's numbers drop to new low

Donald Trump approval ratings: President's numbers drop to new low

A new Gallup poll shows President Donald Trump's approval rating has fallen to just 37 percent - lower than any commander-in-chief at this point in the first term since the polling company started tracking the issue in 1945.

Only Trump's tweeting gets him a lower approval rating, with a mere 35 percent approving of the president's preferred method of communicating with the public. His popularity rating went down on the graph in the following weeks to reach a point of 38 percent in February.

US President Donald Trump looks on during a joint news conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in the White House. This marks a new low in the president's support, and surpasses the worst ratings at any point in Barack Obama's presidency. That's an eight-point drop from where he was nine days earlier, when his approval rating was hovering at 45%. Sad! Trump also made the wild assertion that he was wiretapped by President Obama, a lie which was refuted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

FBI Director James Comey is expected to testify Monday before the House Intelligence Committee about Russia's involvement in the 2016 election and the still unproven wiretapping claim. That was the kind of ugly focus that turned the American people off.

The latest Gallup poll comes on the heels of a GenForward poll, which found that 57% of adults between the ages of 18 and 30 viewed Trump as an "illegitimate" president.

1,500 Americans were asked how they felt about the job Trump was doing.

The president's approval ratings are highest in the South (48 percent) and Midwest (47 percent) and lowest in the West (36 percent) and East (35 percent).
