Percent Approval for Trump in Counties That Helped Elect Him President

Mainstream Media CNN Fake News Get Trump

Of those 50 percent of people who approve, 29 percent do so "strongly", while of the 46 percent who disapprove, 35 percent do so "strongly".

This was the lowest since polling started 70 years ago, with only Gerald Ford coming close to the number with 39% in February 1975.

Respondents also seem to hold a more negative view of Trump's capabilities on the world stage, with just 27% saying America's global leadership has gotten strong since he took office, while 48% believe it has gotten weaker.

Trump also sent one of his private lawyers, Jay Sekulow, onto five Sunday talk shows to argue that there was nothing illegal about son Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting previous year with a Russian attorney following a promise of damaging information on Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

That represents a drop of six points from Trump's job approval rating at the 100-day mark of his presidency.

Trump's approval rating on the economy, in contrast to his overall rating, is about one-to-one, with 43 per cent giving him positive marks and 41 per cent giving him negative ratings.


But then, these basement-level numbers are nothing new for Trump.

Trump boasted of his deal-making abilities on the campaign trail, but majorities also did not back Trump in negotiations with foreign leaders-in particular Russian President Vladimir Putin, whom Trump met face-to-face for the first time at a recent G20 summit in Germany.

Six months after serving as the president, Obama had 59 percent approval rating and Clinton had 45 percent approval rating, the poll said. According to Sunday's poll, half of Americans said they prefer ObamaCare over the new Republican plan to replace it, with the plan only supported by 24 per cent of respondents. Seventy percent say Trump has acted in a way that is "unpresidential".

Recall that the congressmen brad Sherman and al green from the Democratic party launched an initiative on impeachment of the President of the United States Donald Trump.

Whatever Trump's struggles, the poll shows clear risks of Democrats' opposition to Trump. Meanwhile, fewer than 4 in 10 say the Democratic Party now stands for something, while a slight majority say it "just stands against Trump".

The poll was conducted by landline and cell phone from July 10 to 13 in both English and Spanish among a random sample of 1,001 adults with a margin of error of 3.5 points.
