Poll shows President Trump approval rating at historic low

Just 27 percent said the U.S.'s world leadership has gotten stronger under Trump, while about half said it's gotten weaker.

Jared Kushner, Mr Trump's son-in-law and current White House senior adviser, and then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort also attended the meeting with Donald Trump Jr. Narrowing in on Trump's negotiations with Russian President Vladimir Putin, 19 percent said they trust Trump to handle such talks, while 48 percent said they do not trust Trump in that regard.

The White House announced that it has hired attorney Ty Cobb who will serve as a special counsel to manage matters related to an ongoing probe into Russia's alleged interference in the 2016 presidential election, the media reported. Overall, 60 percent of all American adults said Russian Federation tried to tilt the elections, a slight increase from 56 percent in April.

Among independents, Trump received 32 percent approval.

However, Trump polled better on the economy, with 43% approving of how the president is handling the economy, and a further 41% disapproving of his performance on the economy.

Americans' views on Russia's role in the election continue to divide along partisan lines. An Iowa news director emailed CNN's Brian Stelter last week and said conservatives in his state were "extremely angry" at the press because they think the legacy media are using Russian Federation stories to "oust" Trump.

The meeting appears to be the most tangible evidence of a connection between Trump's election campaign and Russian Federation, a subject that has prompted investigations by congressional committees and a federal special counsel.

Sixty-three percent of Americans polled believe it was not appropriate for Trump's son, son-in-law and campaign manager to have meetings with a Russian lawyer during the campaign for the presidential election previous year. Nearly half of all Republicans, however, said the meeting was appropriate.

Poll shows President Trump approval rating at historic low

Gerald Ford was the last president to be near that mark in the poll half-a-year into his presidency, with a 39 percent approval rating in February 1975. For starters, the Democratic party isn't polling well either. Even for Mr Trump himself, it represents a 6 per cent drop in his popularity from April. His standing is a mirror opposite of Obama and Bush at this point in their first terms.

Mr. Trump's disapproval rating has jumped to 58 percent.

The survey released yesterday showed just 36% of Americans thought he was doing a good job.

Fifty-five percent said they don't think Trump is making significant progress on his campaign goals, and two-thirds said they don't trust Trump to negotiate with foreign leaders.

That was Donald Trump in May 2016, on the campaign trail, bright-eyed and inanely pompous.

A poll indicates dissatisfaction with President Trump's performance. About a quarter volunteer either "neither", say they want something else, or offer no opinion.

Republicans' legislative struggles may also be weighing on Trump's popularity. They favor Obamacare over the GOP replacement by a 29-point margin.

About 11 minutes after perijove 7, its closest approach on this orbit, it passed directly above Jupiter's Great Red Spot. For one thing, how can a storm, even one on the scale of our solar system's largest planet, keep spinning for so long?
