President Trump's approval rating has hit a new low, according to a national poll released Thursday, The Hill reports.
The finding mark Trump's lowest approval rating in any poll since he was sworn into office in January in a front of a smaller than expected crowd.
The president's job approval has dropped from 34 percent in October, and from 39 percent in February a few weeks after his inauguration.
According to the Pew poll, 68 percent of Democrats and 44 percent of Republicans say they are at least somewhat confident Mueller will conduct a fair investigation.
His job approval ratings among Democrats remain mostly unchanged at 7 percent. The next-lowest approval rating at this point in a presidency belongs to former President Clinton, who held a 48 percent approval rating in 1993.
For those who said it is at least probable that senior Trump administration officials had improper contacts with Russian Federation, just 36 percent were very confident in Mueller's fairness.
Only 26 percent of Republican or Republican-leaning respondents said that they believed Trump officials either definitely or probably had improper contacts with Moscow during the campaign.
Eighteen percent believe there were probably no improper contacts, and 17 percent said there definitely were not.
The poll conducted between November 29 and Monday has a margin of error of 2.9 percentage points.
In a major development last week, Michael Flynn, Trump's first national security adviser, pleaded guilty to lying to Federal Bureau of Investigation officials about his contacts with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in the month before Trump took office. "There are no significant differences in opinions about whether senior administration officials had improper campaign contacts with Russian Federation, or in views of Mueller's investigation, in interviewing conducted before and after Flynn pleaded guilty on December 1", Pew noted.
