President Donald Trump’s approval rating has dropped to its lowest point since early 2016, according to a new poll.
Trump’s approval has slipped to 49% in a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, while 51% disapprove of his job performance.
The survey, conducted from May 16 to 18, showed the president with 49% approval and 48% disapproval.
His approval rating was lower than his predecessor, President Barack Obama, at 50% in March.
He was at 51% in May, but he fell to 42% in the latest poll.
The president is the first president to record fewer than 50% approval in a single month since Ronald Reagan’s 50% disapproval rating in December 1981.
He also has the lowest approval rating since at least the beginning of the Clinton administration, when the public was evenly divided between disapproval and approval.
Since Trump took office in January, his approval rating is at 47%.
He also holds the lowest rating in the history of the survey, at 43%.
