Trump's 39 percent approval rating is the lowest such number the poll has found for any modern president after one year in office, NBC News reported. It has fluctuated between 35% and 40% for the last nine months.

Trump stressed his achievements in the area of tax reform.

According to the poll, 46% of men approve of Trump while just 33% of women responded the same. It signifies not only the lowest approval rating since Gallup began asking in 2007, but the largest single percentage drop in the history of the poll.

The President's approval rating improved 10 percentage points among conservatives and 7 points among independents, mostly among those who lean toward the Republican Party. "But at the end of his first year, "disgust" was the word most cited about him". "Hopeful", at 23 percent, was third, followed by "proud" at 12 percent and "angry" at 11.
