President Donald Trump's approval rating continues to dive.

Trump's average approval rating, as compiled across dozens of polls by the site FiveThirtyEight.com, is at 37.5 percent, while his disapproval rating is at 56.4 percent, reports The Inquisitr.

A Rasmussen Reports poll, released on Oct. 23, found that only 27 percent of Americans say that they "strongly approve" of Trump's job performance.

In the same poll, Trump's disapproval rating -- the percentage of Americans who say that they disapprove of Trump's performance so far -- reached 58 percent, which is actually 1 percentage point better than the Aug. 4 Rasmussen poll. Trump's "strongly disapprove" rating was 50 percent.

A poll released on Oct. 23 by Harvard/Harris found Trump's approval rating at 42 percent -- down 3 points from September. His disapproval rating registered 58 percent, which is up by 3 points.

In the same poll, only 19 percent said that they "strongly" approve of Trump's performance in office, and 23 percent reported they are only "somewhat" approving.

Despite Trump's historically low approval ratings, the Harvard/Harris poll indicated that American voters feel positive about certain aspects of his job performance.

His approval rating regarding "stimulating jobs" is 52 percent, while 51 percent give positive marks to his handling of the economy overall.  

However, his approval rating dropped to 38 percent when asked about how well he has done running the government.

On Aug 2. a Quinnipiac University Poll found Trump's approval rating at 33 percent.

"It's hard to pick what is the most alarming number in the troubling trail of new lows for President Donald Trump," said Tim Malloy, that poll's assistant director.

"Profound embarrassment over his performance in office and deepening concern over his level-headedness have to raise the biggest red flags," he added. "The daily drip drip of missteps and firings and discord are generating a tidal wave of bad polling numbers."

The poll also revealed that 62 percent think Trump is not honest, 59 percent say he does not care about average Americans, and 63 percent think he does not share their values. In addition, 69 percent believe he should stop tweeting.

A USA Today/iMediaEthics poll from July surveyed public opinion regarding whether or not the president should be impeached, reports the New York Daily News. It found Americans evenly split on the question. "These results suggest that Trump is probably the most beleaguered first-term president in the country's history, and certainly in modern history," observed iMediaEthics Polling Director David Moore.
