Trump job approval hits new low

President Trump's approval rating dips further as Americans eye key policies

President Trump's approval rating dips further as Americans eye key policies

As of Sunday at 1 p.m. ET, Trump's approval rating has sunk to 37 percent, while those who disapprove of the president's job stands at 58 percent. Barack Obama's approval ratings averaged in the low 50s throughout his presidency. 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 drop comes as Republicans pitch the GOP healthcare plan, seeking to rally members behind their proposal to repeal and replace ObamaCare.

Trump is also dealing with a temporary restraining order on his new travel ban, which puts restrictions on citizens from six Muslim-majority nations, after a federal judge in Hawaii put a halt on it last week.

"We're going to take our case as far as it needs to go, including all the way up to the Supreme Court", Trump said.

Gallup has been tracking Trump's approval rating via daily phone interviews of about 1500 adults but the president's ignored the results, tweeting in early February that any negative polls are fake news.

On Wednesday, Republican and Democratic leaders of the House Intelligence Committee said they found no evidence to support Trump's accusation the Obama administration wiretapped Trump Tower before the 2016 election.
