President Trump's disapproval numbers spiked in late July, following the failure of the Senate to advance any bill to repeal parts of Obamacare.
A July 27-29 survey from Morning Consult/Politico found 53 percent of voters do not approve of Trump and 42 percent approve of him. That ties the high disapproval level Trump saw in mid-May, just after it was reported that Trump encouraged then-FBI Director James Comey to drop the Russia probe.
The president's approval rating has continuously dropped this month. Trump started July with a 46 percent approval rating, but shake-ups with the White House staff and his reported concerns with Attorney General Jeff Sessions and special counsel Robert Mueller may be affecting public opinion, as just 42 percent approved of him by the end of July.
The survey also found that Democrats are becoming more appealing to voters, with less than 18 months before the midterm elections. It said a generic Democratic candidate was beating a generic Republican candidate by 7 percentage points.
Forty-four percent of registered voters picked the Democratic Party's candidate compared to the 37 percent who opted for the GOP option. Another 19 percent of voters said they did not know who they would pick.
The Democrats' advantage is the highest reported number since the poll's spring inception. Last week, the same survey concluded voters were evenly split at 40 percent over the type of candidate they would choose.
The sudden change in favor of a Democratic candidate comes after a turbulent week for the Trump administration.
Trump lost his now-former chief of staff Reince Priebus on Friday. Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci was fired on Monday, after the poll closed. However, Scaramucci's controversial comments to a New Yorker reporter engulfed last week's news cycle and may have played a role in how respondents came to their conclusion.
The online poll was conducted with 1,972 registered voters and had a 2 percentage point margin of error.
