It dropped 40 percentage points in Canada and 28 points among Mexicans, who have been a frequent target of Trump's insults and on whose border Trump is trying to erect a wall.

The New York Times obtained the results of those interviews from SurveyMonkey and the publication found that Trump's approval rating among Black Americans declined from 20 percent in February 2017, to 15 percent in December 2017.

Writing for Sky News, Zogby noted that Trump won the 2016 White House race with a paltry 46 percent of the popular vote, and after his first year his job approval average has slid by seven points.

China tied with the same 25 percent approval rating in Europe.

This comes despite the booming economy and low unemployment rates, but with three in five people saying the country is heading in the wrong direction and 43 percent of voters claiming to be worse off financially.

I guess you could say that America's approval ratings under Trump aren't that different from Trump's approval ratings in America.

The Communist regime in China received a greater approval than the USA, with 31% applauding the country under Xi Jinping.

His attacks on individual world leaders and foreign countries have also seen the US's image take a beating. "This historic low puts the US's leadership approval rating on par with China's and sets a new bar for disapproval". Japan, South Korea and the Philippines also saw double-digit declines. Gallup found that approval of US leadership had fallen by double digits in almost half of the 134 countries and areas it surveyed.

The polling and research organization concluded, "It is clear that based on the trajectory of what the world thinks of the US, numerous USA alliances and partnerships that the Trump administration considers a "great strength" are potentially at risk".

"In doing so, he walked away from key institutions and alliances in 2017 that he felt didn't serve U.S. interests, including abandoning the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal and withdrawing from the global climate agreement".

The survey found wall-to-wall declines throughout the Americas - with the biggest shift in the next-door neighbour to the north. The poll was conducted in November 2017, a month before Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and vowed to move the U.S. embassy there. He has actively rejected taking global leadership.

What's more, at the one-year mark, Trump has the most polarized approval gap between his own party and the opposing party in the same time span.

The Gallup results released on Thursday are based on face-to-face and telephone interviews with some 1,000 adults aged 15 and older in each country or region.
