Trump's six-month approval rating falls to a record low

Trump's six-month approval rating falls to a record low

Trump, who took to Twitter to blast the ABC/Washington Post poll as "just about the most inaccurate poll around election time", now boasts the lowest approval ratings of any American president during his first half-year in the past 70 years.

Two in 3 Americans (66 percent) say they do not trust Trump to negotiate with world leaders, including Russian President Vladimir Putin, on the country's behalf. The Post said Trump's popularity now is closer to that of Bill Clinton who had a record low of 43 percent approval rate in late June 1993, before it improved later in the year.

Despite Mr Trump's claims on the campaign trail to "make America great" on the world stage, the survey found 48 per cent believed the USA has actually been weakened.

Though responses split along partisan lines, the poll found that 60% of Americans believe Russian Federation interfered in the presidential election, and 44% thought Trump benefitted from it, while almost 40% said they thought the Trump campaign might have colluded in it.

Bennett further ruled out the possibility of Trump's impeachment in Congress, noting that the attempt will not succeed, because opponents are lacking strong arguments and they "cannot have an impeachment of a president without high crimes and misdemeanors".

Forty-three per cent approved of President Trump's handling of the economy with 41 per cent disapproving.

Earlier, Mr Trump claimed his son had been "scorned by the Fake News Media".

While most presidents might prefer to avoid bad numbers like that, Trump seemed to be quite pleased as his administration lurches from scandal to scandal with no real policy triumphs to show after six months in office.

Half of respondents, 50 percent, said Trump's performance in office has been worse than his predecessors, while just 23 percent it was better.

Yep, that is a 36 percent approval rating, and a 58 percent disapproval rating. Also, 55 percent said that he is not making significant progress toward his goals. Forty-six percent of whites see them as risky, rising to 65 percent of nonwhites. Even among Democrats, over one-quarter say their party primarily stands in opposition to Trump rather than for their own agenda.
