New polling indicates that President Donald Trump's favorability has dipped to a new low following a series of controversies.

More than half (53%) of US voters said they disapprove of the job Trump is doing as President, while just 41% approve, the latest Politico/Morning Consult poll showed - the worst levels the survey has found during Trump's four-month-old presidency. The net negative of 12 percentage points for the president marked his lowest approval rating recorded by the polling group, Morning Consult reports. Do you think they need to tone it down?

When asked if the statement "he is able to serve as Commander-in-Chief" applied to Donald Trump, 50 percent said "no", while 40 percent said "yes". The decline in support from Republicans appears to be a primary reason why Trump's overall approval rating is now at the lowest level since he took office.

The survey queried national adults on their knowledge and opinions of two recent news stories about the president, finding that a majority were aware of them. Another 16 percent said they are "not too confident".

Among Republicans, 23 percent expressed disapproval of Trump in the latest poll, up from 16 percent in the same poll last week. The president had allegedly requested that Comey drop the probe during a private meeting, The New York Times reports. Only 45.3 percent disapproved of the job he's done. A majority of voters (58 percent) called the disclosure inappropriate, including 85 percent of Democrats, 59 percent of independents and 27 percent of Republicans.

Another 55% said Trump's disclosure made them feel "not confident" with his ability to handle highly classified information, while almost as many (52%) said the disclosure made them feel "not confident" in the President's ability to keep the country safe from terrorism. According to that survey, his approval is current at 38 percent.
