President Trump's job approval rating has sunk to a record-low 32 percent in the latest Monmouth University poll released Wednesday.

It's the approval rating for Trump in the Monmouth poll since he took office in January.

Thirty-two percent of respondents approve of the job Trump is doing as president, and 56 percent disapprove.

Over the past year, his approval rating in the Monmouth poll has ranged from 39-43 percent. The biggest drop came among women. Twenty-four percent said they approved of Trump's job performance, compared to 36 percent who approved in September.

Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute, said the president's low approval rating coupled with Roy Moore's Senate loss in Alabama could be a problem for the GOP in the midterm elections. Trump backed Moore in the Senate race.

"This result is not good for the president, especially coming off the loss of his endorsed candidate in the Alabama Senate race," Murray said in a release. "Republicans have to be worried about being dragged down by the weight of Trump's negatives in 2018 if this trend continues."

The Monmouth approval rating is one of the lowest Trump has seen in office. A recent Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll found that 41 percent approved of the job Trump is doing, after declining for three months straight.

The RealClearPolitics average of polls has Trump's job rating at 37.3 percent approval, 57.8 disapproval.

The Monmouth poll was conducted with a random sample of 806 adults from Dec. 10-12.
