President Donald Trump's approval rating slipped to 47 percent in April compared with 48 percent a month earlier, according to a Rasmussen Reports survey released on Tuesday.

Fifty three percent of those polled disapproved of his job performance last month, compared with 52 percent in March.

Most other polls have shown Trump with an even lower job approval rating, as CNN-ORC put it at 44 percent and Fox News at 45 percent.

In other data from the Rasmussen survey:

  • Thirty percent of voters strongly approved of Trump's job performance in April, while 42 percent strongly disapproved. This gives Trump a full-month presidential approval index rating of -12, which is lower than the -10 registered in March.
  • Among Republicans, 54 percent strongly approved of Trump's performance, down from 57 percent in March.
  • For Democrats, 68 percent strongly disapproved of the job the president is doing, down a point from March 7.
  • Among voters not affiliated with either major party, 26 percent strongly approved of the Trump's performance, while 41 percent strongly disapproved.
  • Forty-six percent of voters say Trump will hurt GOP candidates running for Congress, while 33 percent say his presidency will help those candidates.

The poll was based on approximately 10,000 interviews conducted during the month with likely voters. The margin of sampling error is less than +/- 1 percentage points with a 95 percent level of confidence.
