Donald Trump's approval rating falls to 36 percent in new poll


US President Donald Trump, fresh from a political holiday in Paris, went back on the offensive as a new poll showed his popularity dropping amid doubts about Russian election meddling and deepening frustrations over stalled health-care legislation.

President Trump took to Twitter on Sunday to denounce a new poll that shows his approval rating at a record low among presidents six months into office.

The only other president whose approval ratings were nearly as bad six months into his tenure was Gerald Ford, who stood at 39 percent in February 1975, Newsweek said.

Therefore, the level of support trump dropped another 6 points compared to the rating, prepared with 100 days of the presidency.

Overall, 48 percent say they "disapprove strongly" of the current USA president's performance in office.

The Washington Post/ABC News poll also found half of Americans think the U.S. has weakened under Mr Trump's leadership, and only a quarter say he's made the world superpower stronger.

Donald Trump may have just attempted his most audacious use of alternative facts to date.

The Post-ABC poll found some parallels between Americans who "strongly" approve or disapprove of Trump, groups that together account for almost three in four adults. 48 percent say the United States' leadership on the world stage has weakened under Trump; merely 27 percent feel it is stronger.

Only a third of those polled trust the president to do a good job in global negotiations, while two-thirds do not trust him in potential dealings with Russian President Vladimir Putin, whom Trump met this month of the first time.

Sixty percent said they believe that Russian Federation influence the 2016 presidential election. But among Republicans, one-third think Russian Federation tried to influence the election outcome, and fewer than one in ten think Trump's associates sought to help them.

There is one notable bright spot for Trump.

The poll also offers a look at the perception of the Democratic party.

Forty-three percent approve of the president's handling of the economy, while 41 percent disapprove.

The Democratic Party appears to be almost as unpopular as Mr. Trump.

Beyond those areas, Trump continues to be deeply unpopular. The Democrat's all-time lowest rating was 40 per cent, which came after years in the White House.

And in another recent poll that just looked at counties that voted for Trump, he sits at a 50 percent approval rating.

Just 28 per cent of those polled said they think Trump is making significant progress toward his goals, while 55 per cent think otherwise.

Would you say that the more you hear about Trump, the more you like him? Half of Americans preferred Obamacare to the proposals the Republicans have drawn up to replace it. The remaining 30 per cent of Republicans say they prefer neither, something else or give no opinion. Republican proposals include major reductions in spending increases for Medicaid, while eliminating many taxes and fees imposed by the 2010 Affordable Care Act to expand the program.

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.

Other key findings reveal that 61 percent of respondents say America is on the wrong path - up 12 points since December.

The telephone poll of 1,001 American adults has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points, higher among subgroups.
