The numbers are almost the exact reverse of what former president Barack Obama received on his way out of office, with Gallup reporting 59 percent approving and just 37 percent disapproving, for the time period of January 16-19. On March 10, Trump's approval was at 45 percent, 1 point shy of his high of 46 percent immediately after his inauguration.

Rasmussen released its new daily presidential tracking poll numbers on Monday morning, with 49 percent of likely US voters approving of President Trump's job performance. During that month, Trump's job approval actually outweighed his disapproval rating, 48 to 47 percent.

While these numbers aren't great, Trump's daily Gallup ratings are even worse.

On a related note, among post-Watergate presidents, Trump's 37% approval rating is easily the worst among his modern predecessors at this point into his first term.

This low point comes as FBI Director James Comey is expected to tell lawmakers Monday that there is no evidence for the President's unverified claim that former President Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower during the 2016 election.

Trump also jumped right in tackling some of the bolder items on his agenda, issues certain to stir up controversy.

Let's not beat around the bush, much of President Trump's recent slide in the polls is because of this now-infamous early Saturday morning tweet from March 4th.

Most Americans don't think President Donald Trump is respected by other worldwide leaders, a new HuffPost/YouGov survey finds. On Monday, his approval rating plummeted to 37 percent -a new low - while his disapproval rating shot up to 58 percent, which is a new high.

Another approval survey conducted by Fox News found that 51% of respondents disapproved of the president while 43% approved.
