President Trump’s approval rating has dropped to a new low after the House narrowly passed a healthcare reform bill, a poll released early Wednesday found.

A Morning Consult/Politico poll published Wednesday found 44 percent of voters approved of the president’s job performance in the days after the House voted on the GOP healthcare legislation.

The new poll found 48 percent of voters disapproved of Trump’s performance.

{mosads}Trump’s approval rating has plunged 7 points since the previous poll, in which he had a 51 percent approval rating.

The House narrowly passed the American Health Care Act last week by a 217-213 vote.

The Senate has warned that the House bill could face significant changes, and leaders have signaled that the process of passing the upper chamber will not be quick.

But the president has expressed confidence in the future of the Republican bill, saying last Thursday he is “so confident” it will pass the Senate.

The new Morning Consult/Politico poll was conducted May 4–6 from a survey of 1,996 registered voters. It has a margin of error of 2 percentage points.
