President Donald Trump's approval rating has plummeted amid controversies over his executive orders and his stances on immigration, according to the latest poll from Quinnipiac University.

Just 38 percent of the country has approved of Trump's performance, down 4 percentage points since he was inaugurated. Fifty-five percent of voters surveyed by Quinnipiac, meanwhile, disapproved of the job Trump has done.

There was a stark divide on Trump along party lines. Eighty-three percent of Republicans approve of the president's work, compared to just 5 percent of Democrats. Just 38 percent of independent voters approve of Trump's performance.

Quinnipiac found that the majority of voters were against Trump's executive order barring entry for people from seven Muslim-majority countries. Conversely, 59 percent supported the courts blocking the president's order. Overall, the survey — which spoke with 1,323 voters from Feb. 16 through Tuesday and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.7 percentage points — was not good news for the president finding voters don't like much about his character at the moment. 

"President Donald Trump's popularity is sinking like a rock," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll in a statement. "He gets slammed on honesty, empathy, level headedness and the ability to unite. And two of his strong points, leadership and intelligence, are sinking to new lows. This is a terrible survey one month in."

Other surveys have found similarly low ratings. A Gallup poll released last week found just 40 percent of Americans approved of Trump while Pew poll around the same time pegged his approval at 39 percent.

The surveys, in total, painted the picture of a historically unpopular president for a leader so early in his term. Trump has become the only president to have a net negative rating this soon after taking office, CNN reported early this month. For instance, former President George W. Bush, who, like Trump, was elected without winning the popular vote, had a 57 percent approval rating in February of his first term.
