A new poll reveals President Trump's approval rating has plummeted to a record-breaking low.
The poll results come from Gallup's daily survey, and place Trump with a 33 percent approval ratings -- his lowest favorability number to date with the same pollster company. The daily poll also shows the commander in chief with a 62 percent disapproval rating.
As CNN notes, Trump's third-quarter numbers position him as the president with the worst ratings in that span in seven decades of surveys.

These abysmal public opinion results come as Trump's former campaign chariman, Paul Manafort, and his business associate were charged on Monday in a 12-count indictment, including "conspiracy against the United States." Both Manafort and Rick Gates pleaded not guilty, while court documents revealed that about a month ago ex-foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to a charge of making false statements to the FBI.
When asked about Trump's recent unfavorables, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders appeared unphased by the drop in poll numbers -- saying these polling systems were the same ones that predicted Trump would lose the 2016 presidential election.
The latest Gallup results come one day after a new NBC/WSJ poll revealed a 38 percent perfect American approval rating for the 45th U.S. president.
