WASHINGTON -- The gender gap in President Donald Trump's approval rating is a massive 19 percentage points in a new poll.

A 7 News/Emerson College poll of registered voters nationwide found 57% of men approved of the job he is doing as president, while only 38% of women approved.

That is even higher than the 11 point gender gap in exit polls conducted in the 2016 election, which is tied with 1996 for the largest since 1980, according to the Center for the American Woman and Politics at Rutgers University.

The poll of 1,128 registered voters was conducted Jan. 21-23. The margin of error is 4.1 percentage points for men and 4.0 for women.
