Newport noted Trump's controversial decision to pull out of the Paris climate agreement and the testimony of fired FBI Director James Comey, but said it was hard to tie his low ratings to the two events.

31 percent of independents favor of his performance as president.

In the 144 days since President Donald Trump took office, his approval rating has gone from historically low for an incoming president to worse. Trump's disapproval rating is equally dire, at a record high 55.9 percent.

Trump's 8% average approval rating among Democrats last week is right at his 9% average to date. The results reflect the week ending June 11.

The ratings for Trump in his first year are the lowest of any new president since Gallup began keeping track in 1953.

"For June 10-12, Trump averaged 36 percent approval, one point above his low of 35 percent measured March 26-28".

Donald Trump's weird cabinet meeting Monday in which members heaped praise upon him comes on a day the president's ego may need a bit of stroking.

He has not been in office even five months, and yet the latest Gallup daily tracking poll shows a stunning new low: Fully 60 percent of the American public disapprove of Trump's job as president.

Each sample of national adults includes a minimum quota of 70% cellphone respondents and 30% landline respondents, with additional minimum quotas by time zone within region.
