Poll: President Trump's approval rating sinks to lowest point ever

AKIPRESS.COM - President Donald Trump's job approval rating dropped to a new low over the weekend, as the president continues to grapple with healthcare reform, a travel ban, and wiretapping allegations against former President Barack Obama, reports AOL.

At 37 percent, Trump's approval is now at the lowest point of his presidency so far, according to the latest Gallup poll. His previous bottom number was 38 percent, which Trump hit back in mid February.

To put Trump's numbers in perspective, at the same point during his first term, President Obama's approval rating was between 62 and 63 percent, according to Gallup polling -- nearly a 25-point difference.

Trump has already hit a lower approval rating than his predecessor ever did, as Obama's numbers never dipped below 40 percent during his presidency, according to Gallup.

The latest Rasmussen daily tracking poll does show the president with a 48 percent approval, an improvement after he sunk to a 45 percent approval from a high of 55 percent last week.

But the latest FOX News poll backs up Gallup's number, telling a similar story. Trump's approval with the American people fell five percentage points since February to 43 percent in the latest FOX News survey.

Trump's rocky handling of health care may be playing driving the lower approval ratings. According to the same FOX News poll, only 35 percent of Americans approve of how he's dealt with health care thus far.
