President Donald Trump's weekly job approval rating has slipped to 37 percent, according to the latest Gallup poll released Tuesday.
Here are the highlights of the poll, which reflect Trump's job approval weekly average for the week ending June 11:
- 83 percent of Republicans favor the job he is doing as president.
- 8 percent of Democrats approve his job performance.
- 31 percent of independents favor of his performance as president.
"This (overall) rating is one percentage point below the previous week's rating and is the lowest weekly average of his administration," wrote Gallup's Frank Newport. "His disapproval rating for the same week, 58 percent, was his highest to date.
"Trump has averaged 40 percent approval and 54 percent disapproval across the 20 full weeks of his administration. Trump's approval rating started out as the lowest for any new president in Gallup's records."
Newport noted Trump's controversial decision to pull out of the Paris climate agreement and the testimony of fired FBI Director James Comey, but said it was difficult to tie his low ratings to the two events.
"Trump's approval ratings are also near his administration's low point when looking at the three-day approval ratings Gallup reports daily," Newport said.
"For June 10-12, Trump averaged 36 percent approval, one point above his low of 35 percent measured March 26-28."
Results for the poll are based on telephone interviews with 3,552 adults conducted June 5-11. The margin of error is plus or minus 2 percentage points.
