President Donald Trump's job approval rating is well below what would be expected at a time when Americans' views are improving about the economy and the future of the country, Gallup reported Tuesday.

The pollster reports Trump's latest job approval is 38 percent — but should be between 47-54 percent based on the dual measures of voters' views of the economy and direction the nation is taking.

Gallup also reported Trump's average approval rating in 2017 of 39 percent lagged behind the 46 percent of Americans who say the economy is getting better, barely matched the 34 percent rating the economy as excellent or good — and was only slightly higher than the 27 percent U.S. satisfaction.

"Despite improved consumer attitudes about the economy in 2017, Trump's average first-year job approval rating was historically low," Gallup's Lydia Saad wrote.

She added "the key reason" for the president's lower-than-predicted job approval "is likely his favorability rating, which, similar to his approval rating, has been historically low since the start of 2017," along with his "subpar character ratings."
