Approval of President Trump drops to lowest since inauguration: Reuters/Ipsos poll

20 May 2017, 03:05 | Erica Roy

Donald Trump will be impeached if he becomes unpopular with Republican voters. Another 16 percent said they are "not too confident".

A majority of Americans said it was "inappropriate" for Trump to share classified intelligence with the Russians during the meeting.

USA officials told the Post that Trump described the details of an Islamic State terrorist threat related to the use of laptop computers on aircraft. Trump explicitly denies that there has been intrigue with Russian Federation and characterizes the ongoing research at the heart of the witch hunt research.

The poll found that voters were more divided on whether government officials were right or wrong to leak the news to the media.

Forty-four percent of respondents further agreed that "it was necessary to leak the information because government officials needed to alert our worldwide allies and press about major breaches in national security protocol".


Almost six in 10 voters (58%) said they felt Trump's decision to share sensitive information about ISIS with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during an Oval Office meeting last week was "inappropriate", the poll found, while just 22% said they felt the disclosure was appropriate.

Meanwhile, 22% said they are "very confident" in Trump's ability to handle classified information, while 17% said they are "somewhat confident".

The Reuters poll was conducted online in English across the United States with 1,971 adult respondents, including 721 Republicans and 795 Democrats. Since then, the president's approval rating steadily declined, arriving at its lowest point amid a week of negative press coverage.

More than half (53%) of US voters said they disapprove of the job Trump is doing as President, while just 41% approve, the latest Politico/Morning Consult poll showed - the worst levels the survey has found during Trump's four-month-old presidency.
