President Donald Trump's approval rating has dropped to a near-record low of 36 percent, according to Gallup's Daily tracking poll.

Trump's new disapproval rating as of July 19 is at 59 percent.

Trump's lowest approval rating was 35 percent on March 28, according to Gallup's daily tracking.

Gallup's tracking of Trump's approval rating represents the benchmark poll of presidential approval, the results of which are similar to other tracking polls.

Trump's most favorable poll — Rasmussen Reports — has him at a 43 percent approval rating (57 percent disapproval) as of July 20.

Trump did, however, set a record for the worst second quarter approval rating of any president, averaging 38.8 percent, according to Gallup.

Bill Clinton is the only other president to drop below 50 percent approval in Q2, registering 44 percent during the same period in 1993, Gallup reported.

The historical second-quarter average for presidents is 62 percent, the number former President Barack Obama hit in 2009, according to Gallup.

Second quarter is generally still in the honeymoon period of new presidents, however Trump's six months in office have been anything but.

Gallup's daily and second-quarter reports come amid Trump's most turbulent time since taking office:

  • Trump and Senate Republicans' epic fail on healthcare reform.
  • Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Russian lawyer recently surfaced.
  • Special Counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing Russia investigation.

Gallup tracks daily the percentage of Americans who approve or disapprove of the job Trump is doing as president.

Daily results are based on telephone interviews with approximately 1,500 national adults; margin of error is plus or minus 3 percentage points.
