Trump's six-month approval rating hits historic low

"The ABC/Washington Post Poll, even though nearly 40% is not bad at this time", the president wrote of the 36% approval rating, "was just about the most inaccurate poll around election time!"

And when asked whether Trump was doing a better or worse job than previous presidents, 50% of respondents said he was doing worse, while just 23% said he was doing better and 24% said he was performing at about the same level as previous presidents. Sixty-eight percent find them "inappropriate", 65 percent "insulting", 52 percent even "dangerous".

Approximately so low approval ratings (39%) after six months of his tenure was President Gerald Ford in February 1975.

And just 27 percent say USA leadership on the world's stage has gotten stronger while 48 percent say it has grown weaker under Trump.

Last week, information was revealed by the New York Times that Donald Trump Jr. and two other senior campaign officials met with a Russian lawyer and others after being offered damaging information about Hillary Clinton and told that the information was part of a Russian government effort to help Trump.

Thirty-five percent of respondents to the poll said health care is "the most important issue facing the country right now", more than any other topic surveyed.

A Fordham University analysis found the two most inaccurate polls the week before the election actually came from NBC and the Los Angeles Times.

Tour de France wrap after stage six
"It was everything I was dreaming of", added the 24-year-old Calmejane, who also won a stage in the 2016 Vuelta a Espana. Froome remained 12 seconds ahead of Sky teammate Geraint Thomas and 14 seconds ahead of Fabio Aru of Italy.

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

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

But they don't like the way President Donald Trump is going about changing the health-care system.

According to the survey, just 38 percent of respondents say Trump is making "significant progress" toward his goals; 55 percent say he is not. Six in 10 also think Russian Federation tried to influence the campaign, and among those who say so, 67 percent think Trump aides helped, similar to results in April. Trump is now in the middle of the Republican base average, so if he drops, it will signal to Congressional Republicans that his president has lost his grip on his party's base, and they are free to break with him. Seventy percent say Trump has acted in a way that is "unpresidential".

Mr Trump's healthcare plans were also unpopular, with less than a quarter of those surveyed preferring the Republican bill to existing laws.

Yep, that is a 36 percent approval rating, and a 58 percent disapproval rating.

The poll, conducted July 10-13, has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
