"66 of them percent voted for him according to our exit poll".

While President Donald Trump was making his way through a multitude of global destinations, his approval rating back home remained low.

President Donald Trump's popularity in his home state continues to fall, according to a new poll out this morning.

On the Republican side, the biggest cohort, 30 percent, said they "somewhat" agreed with Rosenstein's decision.

On "The Fox News Specialists", Eric Bolling said the media had a particularly bad week last week, with The Washington Post and The New York Times publishing negative stories about President Trump that proved to be "duds".

The administration has faced tough questions about Trump associates' roles in Russian interference during the election, as well as fallout from Trump's firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, and the appointment of a special counsel to investigate connections between Trump's campaign and Russian officials.

Most Americans believe the president is abusing the powers of his office, and they're absolutely right.

Mark Taylor concerned over Australian pay dispute
CA has given players the green light to speak their minds during ongoing pay talks, insisting they respect all views. Australia, now ranked No3 in the world Test rankings, play a two-match red-ball series in Bangladesh in August.

Now, of course we have to keep in mind how much this assessment is influenced by simple partisanship: That 54 percent nearly certainly includes a majority of Democrats, who would be likely to critique any Republican president (just as Republicans would be likely to critique any Democrat).

Independents were split, with 37% saying the media were treating Trump fairly but 40% saying they were not.

A new poll shows trouble for lawmakers who back the Republican plan to repeal and replace Obamacare.

Trump has averaged 38% over the two most recent weeks and the number doesn't appear to be moving much on his first foreign trip as president.

The majority of New Yorkers are also concerned about possible ties between members of the Trump Administration to Russian Federation.

While a majority of voters said they're nervous about the future of the country, a smaller share of Americans (43 percent) say the controversies are causing concern for the well-being of them or their families.
