But their intense opposition to Trump coupled with the president's early political stumbles have been unifying factors for a party still in search of its own identity after a dispiriting loss in last year's presidential election. For comparison, the lowest net approval rating recorded by the same polling group for any president during mid-February of their first term in office was former President Bill Clinton in 1993 with an approval of 56 percent and disapproval of 25 percent. During the campaign, he promised big changes in the first 100 days of his administration.
Despite all that, Trump retains support from a 35-40 percent slice of the electorate that has been unshakable. A new Marketplace-Edison Research Poll found that 51 percent of Americans disapprove of Trump's handling of the economy, while 42.7 percent approve.
Real Clear Politics, which tracks national polls from media outlets, universities and national polling firms, says Trump's disapproval rating on average is almost 11 points higher than his approval rating. This comes after new approval ratings showed Mr Trump has the lowest approval ratings since 1945. A majority, 54 percent, say they disapprove of Democrats in Congress, but the Republican majority is even more unpopular, garnering a 69 percent disapproval rating.
Trump was elected in November with about 50 percent of the vote in North Carolina.
As for President Trump, this Friday marks his 100th day in office. Ironically, an ABC News/Washington Post poll taken days before the 100-day mark found that 61 percent want to "keep and improve" the Affordable Care Act health insurance program, while 37 percent want to "repeal and replace" it.
A recent Fox News Poll contains similarly inauspicious findings for the president. On the one hand, he said, "government has a different mission than business". This is in comparison with the 21 percent who believe Trump's first few months in office have been "good", and the 14 percent who believe they've been "great".
The poll is just one of many released this week revealing a historic low in presidential support. The organization polled 2,654 respondents. In fact many of them have told us this is what I voted for.
Trump, who has been in near constant conflict with the traditional media, used Twitter to criticise the "ridiculous standard" while insisting he has achieved a lot.
