Clinton's unpopularity rivals Trump's, whose favorability rating remains around 40 percent, a record low for presidents at the end of their first year.

Trump's favorability has remained low throughout 2017, despite steady economic growth and a series of record stock market highs. 

Former President Clinton is also looking at his worst numbers since 2001, according to Gallup. Only 45 percent approve of the former president, down 5 points from November 2016, and 50 percent disapprove.
