Hillary Clinton concedes defeat to Donald Trump on the night of last November's US presidential election

The Washington Post/ABC News poll, which put Trump's six-month presidential approval rating at a historic 70-year low, came amid mounting controversy over Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Similarly, his disapproval rating has jumped five points to 58 percent.

The U.S. intelligence community alleged that Russia meddled in the U.S. presidential race past year and there were connections between the Russian government and the Trump campaign.

The US Secret Service yesterday denied a suggestion from President Donald Trump's personal lawyer that it had vetted a meeting between the president's son and Russian nationals during the 2016 campaign.

Almost 70% of those who thought Russian Federation interfered, said they believe Trump's aides attempted to collude with Russian Federation.

The last President to have comparable numbers during the first six months of their term with this poll was Gerald Ford, who replaced Richard Nixon following his resignation due to the Watergate scandal in 1974.

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. President Trump has long contended polling results do not accurately reflect the voting results and the potential inclusion of illegals in polling would sway results against him, since he is working to fight illegal immigration.

Both Moscow and the Trump administration have denied any wrongdoing, with Donald Trump even saying he had confronted Russian President Vladimir Putin about it at the G20 summit.

The poll was conducted between July 10 and July 13 and comes as Trump continues to weather ongoing controversies surrounding his ties to Russian Federation and as his campaign is investigated for possible collusion with Russian Federation during the 2016 election. But nearly half of all Republicans call the meeting appropriate.

The report also found Trump's approval rating had fallen by six points in the last three months.

In addition, 63 percent said it was more important for the federal government to provide health coverage to poorer Americans compared to 27 percent who chose tax cuts instead. The remaining 30 percent of Republicans say they prefer neither, something else, or give no opinion. Even among Democrats, over one-quarter say their party primarily stands in opposition to Mr. Trump rather than for their own agenda. That means the projection for Clinton was within the poll's margin of error of 2.5 percentage points, while the prediction for Trump was about a percentage point outside that margin of error.
