Ever since he took office in January, President Donald Trump's approval rating has seen its fair share of ups and downs - but as of this weekend, it's officially hit a new low.
According to the latest Gallup poll released this weekend, Trump's approval rating has now hit 37 percent, with his disapproval rating rising to 58 percent. For comparison, former President Barack Obama had an approval rating in the low-60s at this point in his first term; while former President George W. Bush had an approval rating in the mid-50s. (Both would eventually drop over the course of their time in office, bottoming out at 40 percent and 25 percent, respectively.)
As ABC points out, the president's approval rating is "lower than any other commander-in-chief at this point in his first term since Gallup started tracking the issue in 1945." It took Former President Bill Clinton five months to hit a 37 percent approval rate, former President Ronald Reagan approximately a year, former President George H.W. Bush over three years, and former President Richard Nixon until his second term.
The Gallup poll is based on daily telephone interviews with approximately 1,500 American adults, with a 3 percent margin of error.
