President-elect Donald Trump's 40 percent favorability rating prior to his inauguration falls far below those of his predecessors, including being nearly half of President Barack Obama's in 2009, according to a new Gallup poll released Monday.

The Gallup results:

  • Trump: 40 percent.
  • Obama in 2009: 78 percent.
  • George W. Bush in 2001: 62 percent.
  • Bill Clinton in 1993: 66 percent.

Trump's 55 percent unfavorable marks the first incoming president whose unfavorable is higher than his favorable, according to Gallup.

Further, Trump's favorability among his own party is also lower than his predecessors with their respective party.

The results:

  • 82 percent of Republicans view Trump favorably.
  • 95 percent of Democrats viewed Obama favorably.
  • 97 percent of Republicans viewed Bush favorably.
  • 92 percent of Democrats viewed Clinton favorable.

"The president-elect's general unpopularity is an unprecedented hurdle, whose impact on his ability to govern remains to be seen," Gallup wrote.

Gallup first started tracking favorability ratings with Clinton's inauguration.

Gallup conducted telephone interviews Jan. 4-8 with a random sample of 1,032 adults, aged 18 and older, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia.

For results based on the total sample of national adults, the margin of sampling error is plus/minus 4 percentage points at the 95 percent confidence level.
