President Donald Trump’s approval rating has reached a new low in the latest poll from Quinnipiac.

In a Quinnipiac survey released on June 7th, 34 percent of voters said that they approve of the president, compared to 57 percent who disapprove. This is the lowest approval rating Trump has earned from Quinnipiac so far; his previous low was 35 percent in early April.

Donald Trump started off in office with a very low approval rating from Quinnipiac, with that number going up and down a bit since then. In January, 36 percent of voters approved of President Donald Trump; by March, that number had gone up to 41 percent, but by April, it had declined back down to 35 percent. Trump’s approval rating has remained in the 30s since May, and it’s now approaching the low 30s for the first time.

This new Quinnipiac poll found that only 25 percent of Americans strongly approve of President Donald Trump, whereas 51 percent strongly disapprove. Among Republicans, 81 percent approve of Trump, but 14 percent disapprove. Just four percent of Democrats approve of Trump.

Total Republicans Democrats Independents Men Women

Disapprove 57 14 93 51 51 63

When it comes to the Russia investigation, 46 percent of respondents said they are very concerned about Donald Trump’s relationship with the country, and an additional 22 percent are somewhat concerned. When asked if Trump did something illegal or unethical with Russia, 31 percent said he did something illegal, while 29 percent said he did something unethical but not illegal. A total of 32 percent of voters said he did nothing wrong at all.

Here’s a look at some of the most recent Trump polls, including the latest one from Quinnipiac:

President Trump’s approval rating is currently far lower than is typical for a first term president at this point in his administration. In June 2009, Barack Obama’s approval rating was 61 percent, and in June 2001, George W. Bush’s approval rating was 55 percent.
