During the same period the favorability rating for the Republican Party remained "basically unchanged" at 39 percent, a press release explaining the poll stated.
"So far, Trump's unpopularity as president has done little to erode Americans' views of the GOP [Republican Party], perhaps because they were already quite negative," according to the release. "However, Americans are now less positive toward the Democratic Party than they were last fall."
Throughout last year's presidential election campaign, US adults rated neither party highly, with negative opinions consistently outweighing positive views, the poll revealed.
Since Gallup began the survey in 1992, the Democratic Party has enjoyed an edge over Republicans, with favorability ratings averaging 50 percent and 44 percent respectively, the release noted.
