New York, May 20 (RHC)-- U.S. President Donald Trump's approval rating continues to fall according to a new poll. The Gallup survey showed that only 38 percent of Americans approved of Trump's performance as president.
This is slightly higher than late March, when the figure had nosedived to 35 percent, a record low for any U.S. president during their first months in office. Gallup noted that Trump's new rating on his 115th day in the White House was still the lowest among the last four U.S. presidents.
According to data by the pollster's Presidential Job Approval Center, Trump's predecessor Barack Obama had an approval rating of 64 percent at this point in his presidency. The number stood at 56 percent for his Republican predecessor George W. Bush. For Democratic Bill Clinton, the number fell to 45 percent.
The White House has been roiled by controversy following Trump's decision to fire former FBI chief James Comey, who was overseeing two important probes that shaped the Republican president's victory against his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton. And now a new scandal shaking the Trump administration, alleging that the U.S. president gave sensitive intelligence information to Russian officials during a White House meeting last week.
