In the latest three-day Gallup average, the president's disapproval number hit 60 percent, a new high.
That is slightly higher than Trump's previous disapproval threshold, which was 59 percent in late March, according to the poll. Fifty-seven percent said they disapprove.
New polling indicates that President Donald Trump has hit a level of disapproval that took his predecessors almost a full term to reach. A few moments later, he made her wildest dreams come true.
"The four modern presidents who *did* hit the 60% disapproval mark only did so well into their presidencies, after serious crisis or scandal", Kruse wrote.
ADVERTISEMENTNeither former President nor President ever reached 60 percent in the survey, while George W. Bush reached the 60 percent disapproval mark almost five years into his presidency. Finally, W. Bush reached a 60 percent disapproval rating 1,758 days into his occupancy of the White House.
Trump also had the dubious honor of reaching a majority disapproval rating faster than any of his predecessors.

Though just over half of Americans say they disapprove of Trump's firing of Comey, the number grows to 79 percent among Democrats. After Trump fired FBI Director James Comey , Trump said that Comey had told him three times that he was not under investigation .
Trump's approval rating previously dipped to 36 percent earlier this month but rose to 38 percent by June 6.
On Jan. 28, Gallup found that 51 percent of national adults disapproved of the president's job performance.
Similarly, the president's approval rating stood at 40 percent in a Reuters/Ipsos poll released Wednesday, while his disapproval rating stood at 56 percent.
Trump's approval in the Gallup daily tracking poll noticeably suffered following former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey's testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee.
On June 14, a Politico/Morning Consult survey found that 45 percent of registered voters were more inclined to trust Comey while 32 percent said they had more trust in Trump, according to Politico.
In a string of tweets Tuesday, historian and author Kevin Kruse noted the significance of the president reaching a almost 60 percent disapproval rating, the lowest it's been since Trump took office. Comey asserted that Trump was a liar during the hearing, and the president subsequently accused Comey of committing perjury during his account.
