As of Tuesday, the president's disapproval rate also matched his all-time high of 60 percent.

The data were based on telephone interviews with 1,500 adults across the country over a three-day rolling average. The margin of error is 3 percent.

Trump's approval rating has dropped down to the 36 percent mark June 25, and July 19 and 24. It has fluctuated between that low and a high of 42 percent since June 22. Trump's highest Gallup approval rating was 46 percent on Jan. 25.
