Though a large majority of Republicans in the poll, 83 percent, said they approved of Trump, that number was the lowest in months, according to Morning Consult.

The survey was conducted among 156,104 people throughout the month of January, while the longest-ever government shutdown was taking place, a new Democratic-controlled House was sworn in and Trump clashed with intelligence leaders on foreign policy. The margin of error ranged from 1 to 4 percentage points, varying by state.

A majority of voters in 27 states said they disapproved of Trump, with a majority in just 12 states saying they approved.

At least two other polls taken in January, including one from conservative-leaning Rasmussen, showed Trump with his lowest approval rating in at least a year.
