Poll: Trump hits all-time low in job approval
President Trump’s job approval rating has dropped to a new low, according to the most recent Gallup tracking poll.
Just 33 percent of respondents in the Gallup daily survey approve of the job Trump is doing as president.
Sixty-two percent of respondents said they disapprove of Trump’s job performance.
The Gallup survey is based on a three-day rolling average. It is conducted among 1,500 adults and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
Trump’s 33 percent approval rating is his lowest since taking office, according to Gallup.
Trump had previously hit 34 percent approval at the end of August.
A recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll showed similar results with only 38 percent of those polled saying they approve of Trump’s job performance. Another 58 percent of respondents in that poll disapproved of Trump’s performance.
Trump and congressional Republicans have been pushing tax reform in recent weeks after the GOP failed to repeal and replace ObamaCare.
The Gallup survey was conducted before Monday’s news that Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort is being charged with 12 counts — including conspiracy against the United States — in the first indictments to come from the investigation being done by special counsel Robert Mueller.
