  • Most Americans Disagree With Trump Over Trans People Serving In The Military

This poll comes weeks after it was suggested by that Donald Trump was "historically unpopular" for a president at this stage in his presidency, according to analysis from FiveThirtyEight.

The July 31 New York City poll found Mayor de Blasio's approval rating plunges; but he still has a big lead over other challengers.

Trump's approval rate fell from 40 percent points from the previous Quinnipiac poll published on June 29, while his disapproval rose 17 points, with undecided voters from January turning on him.

A Gallup poll from August 1 shows similar levels of negative sentiment. But only a third of Republicans think having gays and lesbians in the military affects readiness for the worse, significantly lower than the 48% who say this about transgender people.

The Rasmussen poll was conducted between the 30 July and 1 August, and is a fresh blow to the embattled president.

On top of that, 50% of all respondents said they strongly disapprove of Trump while just 25% said they strongly approve.

All these revelations have been sourced by the developers from the firmware of the company smart speaker, the HomePod. The inclusion of face recognition technology might give the iPhone 8 an edge over rivals such as Samsung Galaxy S8 .

All of that helped push Trump's approval to a record low in this poll.

"They put on uniforms and face the same risks as their brothers and sisters in arms for little reward other than protecting their country", said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

In addition to those figures, 54 percent of voters surveyed say they're embarrassed by Trump compared to the 26 percent that say that they feel proud.

Only 36 percent of Americans approve of Trump's job performance, down 6 points from his 100-day mark, which itself was a low.

The key vote in the U.S. Senate that rejected the health care repeal bill came between midnight and dawn last Friday.

Frequently cited by journalists, public officials and researchers, the independent Quinnipiac University Poll regularly surveys residents in Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Iowa, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and nationwide about political races, state and national elections, and issues of public concern, such as schools, taxes, transportation, municipal services and the environment. Surveys conducted by Rasmussen do not meet ABC News' standards for polls due to their use of recorded, auto-dialed calls and lack of in-household participant selection.
