A new poll released Thursday shows President Trump's approval rating has hit a new low.

The Pew Research Center poll finds that just 32 percent of Americans approve of how Trump is handling his job as president. Sixty-three percent of Americans say they disapprove.

Trump's 32-percent approval rating is a new low in the Pew poll. The group's most recent survey, conducted in October, found Trump held a 34 percent approval rating after three consecutive surveys dating back to February measured his approval rating at 39 percent.

The 63 percent of Americans who disapprove of Trump's job as president is the highest Pew has measured in the poll, topping a previous high of 59 percent in Pew's October survey.

Trump's approval among Republicans has fallen since February. The poll finds that 76 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning voters approve of Trump's job as president compared to 84 percent in February.

Forty-one percent of white Americans say they approve of Trump compared to 49 percent in February. His support among white evangelical Protestants has also dropped from 78 percent in February to 61 percent in the December survey.

The poll also finds Trump's approval rating at this point in this presidency sits far lower than his recent predecessors. The next-lowest approval rating at this point in a presidency belongs to former President Bill Clinton, who held a 48 percent approval rating in 1993.

Former President Obama held a 49 percent approval rating at this point during his first term in 2009, and 80 percent of Americans approved of former President George W. Bush's job as president in 2001 after Bush received a surge in approval following the September 11, 2011 terrorist attacks.

The poll was conducted from November 29 to December 4 among 1,503 adults.
