Trump's Approval Rating Hits A Historic Low Point

Trump's Approval Rating Hits A Historic Low Point

In the ABC-Washington Post poll conducted this month, Trump's approval rating plunged to 36% from 42% in April - the lowest for any president in recent history.

"The ABC/Washington Post Poll, even though nearly 40 percent is not bad at this time, was just about the most inaccurate poll around election time!" the President tweeted.

His disapproval rating has risen five points since then, to 58 percent, according to a comparison of the two polls.

Trump's six-month rating is the lowest of any American president at this point in the last 70 years.

M'sia to do its part to help resolve Qatar crisis
Qatar invited companies to bid on the project previous year , before the Saudi-led trade boycott against Qatar that began in June. "We are concerned about the crisis in relations among fraternal Arab countries in the Persian Gulf", the Russian diplomat said .


Sixty percent said they believe Russian Federation tried to influence the 2016 presidential election, up four points from April.

As Trump associates are shaking up their legal teams, Sekulow said it's not "unusual" for Trump's reelection campaign contributions to be used to pay for the family's legal bills.

Healthcare was also a contentious point, with 50% wanting him to keep Obamacare and not make changes.

Disapproving respondents cited the Trump family's incredibly sketchy dealings with Russian Federation, the wildly unpopular Republican healthcare bill, and the truly embarrassing sight Trump strikes when dealing with other world leaders.

Wimbledon - Mixed Doubles: Dominant Murray and Hingis win it all

Speaking to reporters on Air Force One on Thursday, the president said 39-year-old Donald Jr was "a good boy" and added: "And he had a meeting, nothing happened with the meeting".

According to the survey, 63 percent say it was inappropriate for Donald Trump Jr to have met with a Russian lawyer during the presidential campaign past year. Half those polls says the American leadership has grown weaker under Trump. Also, 55 percent said that he is not making significant progress toward his goals.

Trump also used his early-morning Twitter rant to say his son was being "scorned" by the coverage of his controversial meeting - and to bring up Hillary Clinton's emails.

Half of those surveyed said they prefer to keep the current health care law, while just 24 percent said they favour the GOP plan. The repeal effort is opposed by all Democrats, and the loss of a single Republican vote could doom it. Specific to county type: 342 adults were surveyed in "flip" counties with a 5.3 margin or error, while just 258 adults were polled in "surge" counties with a 6.1 percentage margin of error. However, 48 percent "disapprove strongly" of his performance overall, a level never reached by his two Democratic predecessors.
