President Donald Trump's approval rating has fallen to a low of 34 percent in the latest Gallup daily tracking poll on Friday.

The president's disapproval rate is at 61 percent, according to Gallup. The difference represents a new low net approval rate of negative 27 points.

The approval rate is down 1 point from the previous week, while the disapproval figure had risen, also by a point.

President Trump reached these figures earlier this month, in the daily tracking poll for Aug. 14.

Before then, the president's lowest approval rate had been 35 percent on March 28.

Gallup's tracking poll is based on interviews with 1,500 adults nationally and has a margin of error of 3 percent.

In addition, Fox News reported Wednesday that Trump's approval rating had fallen by 10 points since April, to 35 percent — the lowest since President Barack Obama in 2013.

Trump's disapproval rating rose 11 points, to 64 percent.

The Fox poll also found that 56 percent of its 1,006 respondents said that President Trump was "tearing the country apart," compared with 33 percent who said that he was "drawing the country together."

At the White House briefing on Friday, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders slammed the surveys as unreliable.

"A lot of these polls are the same polls that predicted that Donald Trump would never be the president — and he's sitting in the Oval Office as I stand here.

"I don't have a lot of faith in a lot of these polls.

"The numbers that we're focused on have to do with actual problems that Americans are facing," she added. "The numbers that we're focused on are the ones that actually impact day-to-day life for all Americans.

"That's what we're focused on, certainly not silly polls that frankly weren't much use to us in the election — and certainly I don't think are now."
