The latest survey from Gallup showed that Trump’s disapproval rating had shot up to 60 percent. That’s tied for his all-time high and the sharp 7 percentage point uptick from the week prior. Just before the midterm election, Trump’s disapproval stood at 54 percent, according to Gallup.

 

While Trump’s disapproval rate has risen, his approval rate has dropped. Only 38 percent of Americans approved of his job performance, according to the new poll from Gallup. That’s a 5 percentage point drop from the week prior, and approaches his all-time low of 35 percent.

 

The Gallup survey polled approximately 1,500 U.S. adults. It had a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

 

While Gallup has shown a drop to the high 30s, FiveThirtyEight’s tracker of Trump’s popularity had his average approval rating in the low 40s on Monday. The tracker that aggregates public polls into one figure—weighting polls for quality, recency, sample size and partisan lean—had Trump’s approval at 42.5 percent and disapproval at 52.9 percent on Monday.
