President Donald Trump's approval rating is at 36 percent, according to a new CBS News poll released Tuesday. 

That number is the lowest approval rating in CBS News surveys since the president took office.

The results:

  • Feb. 21: 39 percent.
  • March 29: 40 percent.
  • April 10: 43 percent.
  • April 26: 41 percent.
  • Now: 36 percent.

The rating is partly due to Republicans showing less support for Trump between his 100-day mark and today, CBS News noted. 

  • Republican approval at 100 days: 83 percent.
  • Republican approval in current poll: 72 percent.

Regarding his job performance, Trump's handling of the Russia investigation gained him the lowest ratings among how he handled other issues.

  • Recent shooting: 46 percent.
  • Terrorism: 44 percent.
  • The economy: 42 percent.
  • Russia investigations: 28 percent.

Across all parties, most voters believe Trump has been criticized more than recent presidents.

  • Among all voters: 71 percent.
  • Only Republicans: 85 percent.
  • Only Democrats: 65 percent.
  • Only independent voters: 68 percent.

The poll was conducted June 15 -18 among 1,117 adults, randomly selected nationwide.
