The poll conducted between November 29 and Monday has a margin of error of 2.9 percentage points.

At 63 percent, the vast majority disapprove of Trump's performance, with 84 percent of those saying they are unable to think of a single thing Trump has accomplished they're happy with. Trump's job approval among Democrats is only 7 percent, down 1 percent from February.

Currently, 76 percent of Republicans and those who said they leaned Republican approved of Trump's job performance, down 8 percentage points from February.

Many groups responsible for Trump's relatively high ratings in February seem to approve less of Trump now.

Donald Trump's approval rating has reached the lowest point of his 11-month-long presidency, dropping to 32 percent this week as his embattled White House administration has shrugged off allegations of sexual assault, collusion with Russian Federation and ineffective leadership. "In the decades since World War II, the average first-term president before Trump had an approval rating of 62 percent on his 175th day in office". Nearly half of all white voters approved of his job performance that month, compared to 41 per cent now.

While 30 percent of respondents think senior Trump officials "definitely" had contacts with Russian Federation a year ago during the campaign, 59 percent responded they believe the contacts either "definitely" or "probably" occurred.

Yet even that "high" rating was a historical low.

"Trump's early-term unpopularity is unusual", Harry Enter for FiveThirtyEight explains. Trump's approval rating in the current survey among registered voters is 34%.

At the same time, 67% of Americans believe that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's decision to plead guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about contact with the Russian ambassador and cooperate with the special counsel is a serious matter for the Trump administration.

According to Pew, 29 percent of respondents said the campaign officials "probably" did, while 30 percent said they "definitely" did.
