As Donald Trump leads the country through the coronavirus outbreak, his approval ratings are declining.

A new Gallup poll released Thursday shows that the strong support the president had as the country entered the lockdown in mid-March has slipped six points from 49% to 43%. 

The poll indicates:

  • 93% of Republicans support the job the president is doing 
  • 30% of people surveyed approve of the job Congress is doing 
  • 30% of Americans are satisfied with the direction of the country 

The poll shows the sharpest drop Gallup has recorded for the Trump presidency so far. His average rating has been 40%. He has hit 49% three separate times. 

Trump's ratings aren't the only ones taking a hit. Just 30% of Americans are satisfied with the direction of the country, which is a 12-point drop from early March. 

But there is a rally behind Congress, according to the poll. Congress received a boost from 22% to 30% approval rating.
