Donald Trump is now suffering from the lowest approval rating of his presidency, with just 38 percent feeling positive about his job performance, a new poll shows.

The poll, conducted between October 23 and 26, showed 58 percent of respondents disapprove of Trump's performance; with his 38 percent disapproval rate dipping from a previous low of 39 percent in May.

Although the majority of Republicans - some 80 per cent - approve of Trump's performance as president, the results of the survey suggest that his political "base" is eroding.

"This is his worst showing of his young presidency so far", said Democratic pollster Fred Yang of Hart Research Associates, who was part of the team that conducted the survey.

NBC News notes that the voters who reported the biggest drop in their approval of Trump include independents, white Americans, and white Americans without a college degree.

Just 35 percent approve of his handling of his role as commander in chief; 34 percent approve of his handling of North Korea; 33 percent approve of his handling of the mass shooting in Las Vegas; and 30 percent approve of Trump's handling of NFL players protesting during the National Anthem. Democrats are favored in the NBC/WSJ poll by seven points, up by a point since September but less than in many other polls.

The poll released Sunday also has some good news for Democrats as voters look toward next year's midterm elections.

The poll was conducted October 23-26, surveying 900 adults with a margin of error of plus-minus 3.3 percentage points.

The new survey had an overall margin of error of 3.3 points.
