President Trump’s approval rating dropped to a new low, according to Gallup’s daily tracking poll.
Thirty-three percent of Americans approve of the job Trump is doing as president, compared to 62 percent who disapprove, according to the Gallup poll released Monday.
Trump’s current approval rating, which is based on a three-day rolling average, marks a new low for the president. Prior to Monday’s poll, Trump’s reached a record low on Aug. 30, when 34 percent of voters approved of Trump’s job performance.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders dismissed the survey during Monday’s White House press briefing and told reporters previous polls also indicated Trump would lose the 2016 election to Hillary Clinton.
“Look, we’re focused aggressively on pushing forward on a very bold agenda specific to tax reform, tax cuts,” she said. “I think that the economy continuing to grow and strengthen is something that will certainly change those numbers. But at the same time, I think these are some of the same polls that also said this president would never be president, so I don’t have a lot of confidence in them.”
Trump's approval rating also reached a new low in an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Sunday. According to the survey, the president's approval rating fell to 38 percent for October. The previous low for the NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll was 39 percent, recorded in May.
Gallup surveyed 1,500 adults, and the poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
