President Trump’s approval rating has hit a new low in the latest Gallup poll.

Gallup released a survey Monday that showed Mr. Trump’s approval ranking fell to 36 percent during the three-day period that coincided with the GOP’s health care debacle — putting him 2 percentage points below President Barack Obama’s all-time low and a single-point below President Bill Clinton’s poorest rating.

The pollster’s analysis said President George W. Bush’s lowest approval rating was 25 percent, while his father President George H.W. Bush bottomed out at 29 percent and President Ronald Reagan never fell below 35 percent.

Several presidents faced approval ratings lower than that of Mr. Trump — including Jimmy Carter and Richard Nixon — during their careers.
