Poll shows President Trump approval rating at historic low

Poll shows President Trump approval rating at historic low

Opinions over Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and whether the Trump campaign colluded with Moscow-a subject of multiple investigations-divided sharply along partisan lines.

Despite having an overall low rating, statistics reveal dramatic differences in approval from different groups - for example, conservative Republicans rate Trump at a 90% approval versus liberal Democrats rating him at 5%.

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.

Republicans' legislative struggles may also be weighing on Trump's popularity. After all, there's quantitative evidence that most Americans just aren't buying what this president is selling. "If Trump's at 36% approve/58% disapprove, with 32% approval among independents, GOP won't hold the House", Bill Kristol, a Republican pundit and editor-at-large of The Weekly Standard conservative news magazine tweeted on Sunday. When asked what they approve or disapprove of most, 12 percent of strong approvers and 14 percent of strong disapprovers volunteered "everything".

Purchases 1653 Shares of Chevron Corporation (CVX)
Investment Centers Of America Inc bought 11,090 shares as the company's stock declined 3.45% while stock markets rallied. The stock of Chevron Corporation (NYSE:CVX) earned "Market Perform" rating by Raymond James on Tuesday, March 22.

While 58 percent said they're moving closer to realizing their own career and financial aspirations, 55 percent view Trump unfavorably.

And slightly less than half of those polled say the country has grown weaker under Trump.

The areas were broken down into "surge" or "flip" counties, meaning they either flipped from Barack Obama to Trump or Trump beat Mitt Romney's totals in 2012.

44 percent approve of Trump's job performance. The margin of error was +/- 3.5 percentage points. Seventy percent say Trump has acted in a way that is "unpresidential".

Cruz's 'consumer freedom' proposal could plunge health market into death spiral
"You the consumer, you the patient, should have the freedom to choose the insurance you want", Cruz said recently on CBS. Those funds could be used to subsidize premiums for people with health problems.

Specific to Twitter, word associations with Trump's tweets are broadly negative in this poll, produced for ABC News by Langer Research Associates. Two-thirds disapprove of the president's use of social media, and 53 percent strongly disapprove.

President Donald Trump waves as he arrives at the Elysee Palace in.

NBC said more data from the poll will be released later in the week.

About 60% of those polled said it was inappropriate for Trump's son to have met with a Russian lawyer during the campaign, and about the same number believe Russia attempted to steer the outcome of the election.

Aircraft makes unscheduled landing after passenger 'passes gas'
What is true is that American flight 1927 from Charlotte to RDU arrived at the gate 2:21 p.m. Right now the plane is out of commission until maintenance crews can figure out the cause.

While 34 percent trust Trump to negotiate on America's behalf with other world leaders, only 19 percent trust him "a great deal". Just 15 percent of blacks, meanwhile, expressed support for his performance.
