Trump's disapproval rating hits an all-time high of 60 percent

President Trump's disapproval rating hit 60 percent in Gallup's daily tracking poll out Tuesday. That marks an all-time high for Trump's presidency, beating out his previous high of 59 percent.

Just 36 percent of Americans approve of the job Trump is doing as president. Trump narrowly missed also setting a record for that rating; his all-time low is 35 percent approval, from March 28.

The Hill reported that neither former Presidents Barack Obama nor Bill Clinton ever hit 60 percent disapproval in Gallup's survey, and former President George W. Bush didn't cross that threshold until he'd been president for nearly five years.

The poll surveyed roughly 1,500 adults by telephone, and its margin of error is plus or minus 3 percentage points.
