Donald Trump is beginning his presidency with the majority of Americans disapproving of his leadership, according to a poll released Thursday.
About 36% of voters approved of his handling of the presidency and 52% have an unfavorable opinion about him, the Quinnipiac University survey said.
Men approved of him 41% to 38% while women approved of him 33% to 50%.
The poll was the first major survey conducted since Trump assumed office on Jan. 20.
At the same time, voters gave former President Barack Obama a 59% approval rating, according to the poll. Congress, on the other hand, had a 19% approval rating.
Quinnipiac interviewed 1,190 voters nationwide between Jan. 20 and 25. The poll has a margin of error of +/- 2.8%.
