70 percent say Trump's actions unpresidential

If the media believed Russian hacking was a crime against our democracy why did they publish the fruits of that crime

Mainstream Media CNN Fake News Get Trump

He tweeted that winning 40 percent approval wasn't bad "at this time" and claimed that ABC and The Washington Post's polling was the most inaccurate leading up to the election.

That's the conclusion of a Bloomberg News poll showing just 40 percent of Americans approve of the job he's doing - despite the fact that they are feeling better about their own economic prospects.

The poll also shows that 63 percent say it was inappropriate for Trump's son, Donald Trump Jr.; his son-in-law, Jared Kushner; and campaign manager, Paul Manafort, to have met with a Russian lawyer during the campaign.

To achieve this record breaking lowest rating, Donald Trump beat out Gerald Ford (Former President) who was holding the lowest popularity position as a President with 39% approval rating.

The poll found that 48 per cent believed America's leadership in the world is weaker than before the billionaire took office, while support for Republican plans to replace Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act was at just 24 per cent compared with 50 per cent who support Obama's signature healthcare policy.

The poll, produced by Langer Research Associates from July 10-13, showed respondents were concerned by the ongoing investigation into Russia's alleged interference in the US election, the recent news Trump's son Donald Jr. had met with a Kremlin-linked Russian lawyer prior to the election, and the president's plan to repeal and replace Obamacare.

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.

According to the poll, Trump's disapproval rating has risen five points to 58 percent.

Two-thirds of respondents said they do not trust Trump, or trust him only somewhat, in negotiating with foreign leaders.

Most participants (55 percent) thought Trump's G20 summit visit was not sucessful. Trump isn't just unpopular; he's unpopular in ways we haven't seen in modern times.

But there is some good news for Trump.

Forty-three percent approve of the president's handling of the economy, while 41 percent disapprove. Among Democrats, eight in ten believe Russian Federation attempted to influence the election and more than six in ten think members of Trump's team attempted to aid their efforts.

It also found 60 per cent of Americans think Russian Federation tried to influence the presidential race, and of those 67 per cent say Trump aides were complicit.

Comparatively, approval ratings remained low among non-white Protestants, college educated white women, Hispanics, and blacks. Trump won the presidency by capturing the Electoral College, but Clinton won the popular vote by nearly 2.9 million votes, 65,853,625 to 62,985,106 - a margin of 2.1 percent and well within the ABC/Washington Post poll's margin of error of plus or minus 2.5 percentage points.
