President Donald Trump‘s popularity has hit a new low — according to a newly released NBC/Wall Street Journal poll (via Politico). But he still bests Hillary Clinton in a key metric, and by a fairly healthy margin at that.
The poll finds that 36 percent of respondents have either a very positive or somewhat positive feeling about the President. That’s a drop of two points from the previous survey in June, and a new low since Trump won the election.
But he fares better in the category than his general election rival, Hillary Clinton. The poll shows that 30 percent of people feel either very positive or somewhat positive about the former Secretary of State. That’s down from 32 percent the last time respondents were asked the question in December 2016 — shortly after her loss. But in October, 40 percent gave her a positive rating.
Overall, Trump’s job approval rating stands at 40 percent in the poll — which is something of an outlier compared to other major polls.
