A survey released this week from the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll found the president's support among Republicans-which is, of course, his own party-had plunged.

The approval rating of U.S. President Donald Trump has reportedly reached 50% for the very first time since April this year.

Of those who said the Russians were influential - a group overwhelmingly dominated by Democrats - 95 percent said the Russian influence helped Trump and 2 percent said it helped Hillary Clinton. And among Democrats, 90 percent disapprove.
