President Donald Trump's approval rating fell to 36 percent for the three-day period following the failed attempt to get the Republican healthcare plan approved, a new Gallup poll revealed.

The poll surveyed his approval from March 24-26. His three-day reading prior to Friday's withdrawal of the GOP plan had been 41 percent, Gallup noted.

"His previous low point was 37 percent, recorded March 16-18," Gallup said in a report of its survey. "His highest reading was 46 percent in the week following his Jan. 20 inauguration, and he has averaged 42 percent for his term to date."

The polling firm noted his current 36 percent approval rating pushes him 2 percentage points below former President Barack Obama's low of 38 percent in 2011 and 2014.

But Trump's approval rating is far from the worst recorded.

Gallup noted George W. Bush recorded a 25 percent approval rating, George H.W. Bush received a 29 percent rating, Ronald Reagan 35 percent; Jimmy Carter, 28 percent, Richard Nixon 24 percent, Lyndon Johnson 35 percent and Harry Truman once came in with 22 percent.

"Presidential job approval ratings are fluid, and all presidents have seen both upward and downward swings in their ratings at various points in their administrations — a historical precedent indicating Trump's approval could drop further or recover in the weeks and months ahead," Gallup said..

It noted, with the exception of Nixon, all the other presidents who received approval lower than Trump saw their ratings improve after that.
