Trump's Approval Rating Hits 41 Percent In Latest CBS Poll

27 April 2017, 03:47 | Myron Mathis

A new ABC News/Washington Post poll released Wednesday revealed just how radically different Democrats' and Republicans' perceptions of Russia's election meddling are.

Forty-nine percent of Trump's supporters say they would definitely vote for the president to have another term. 81 percent of Republicans said they are "mainly excited or optimistic" about Trump's presidency.

The poll also asked USA adults their thoughts on the Obama administration's alleged spying on the Trump campaign.

The numbers are greater when party lines are taken into account, with 60% of Democrats believing Trump's campaign intentionally aided Russian Federation in an attempt to influence the outcome of the election. Presidents generally start office with a majority approval rating.

An investigation into Russia's alleged involvement in the U.S. election is now ongoing, with the Senate Intelligence Committee examining evidence on the matter - although the probe has already faced criticism for moving at a glacial pace, with just seven staff members working on the case.

On the other hand, 55 percent of leaned Republicans and 63 percent of strong conservatives believe the Obama administration spied on Trump and his campaign.

Even 29 percent of Democrats, who may disagree with Trump's agenda, believe he's holding true to his campaign promises.

This poll was conducted April 17-20, 2017, among a random national sample of 1,004 adults. Survey results have a margin of error of +/- 4.36 percentage points.
