Call it the unlucky seven — that’s how many times President Obama’s approval rating has now sunk to his administration low of 38 percent, Gallup reported.

“We have the situation in Russia, we have the situation in Syria and we have the situation of Americans being beheaded by ISIS,” said Gallup editor-in-chief Frank Newport, the New York Post reported.

This is the seventh time Mr. Obama’s found his approval rating at 38 percent, Gallup said. HIs disapproval rating of 54 percent, meanwhile, stands the same since the last Gallup reading.

All presidents — except Dwight Eisenhower and John F. Kennedy — have seen their approval ratings tumble below the 40 percent mark at various times in their administrations, Gallup reported.
