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

The approval rating for Trump, who approaches six months in office, is lower than that of any of his predecessors in 70 years, Xinhua reported.

Beyond those areas, Trump continues to be deeply unpopular.

Yep, that is a 36 percent approval rating, and a 58 percent disapproval rating. Overall, 48 percent say they "disapprove strongly" of the current US president's performance in office.

Consider the partisan breakdown: 82 percent of self-identified Republicans approve of how Trump is doing, including 62 percent who approve strongly.

Just 28 per cent of those polled said they think Trump is making significant progress toward his goals, while 55 per cent think otherwise. However, former presidents and Democratic leaders like Barack Obama and Bill Clinton remained quite popular during their multiple terms.

But a somewhat larger group of Trump approvers, 40 percent, mentioned a policy-related reason. Specific to county type: 342 adults were surveyed in "flip" counties with a 5.3 margin or error, while just 258 adults were polled in "surge" counties with a 6.1 percentage margin of error. Seventy percent say Trump has acted in a way that is "unpresidential". Trump declared via Twitter. The President himself claims he needs a way to "get the honest and unfiltered message out", and insists his social media use is not presidential, but "MODERN DAY PRESIDENTIAL".


The emails show music promoter Rob Goldstone telling the future president's son that "the crown prosecutor of Russia" had offered "to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russian Federation and would be very useful to your father".

Secondly, to say it is "not bad at this time" is just plain false.

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

Trump also sent one of his private lawyers, Jay Sekulow, onto five Sunday talk shows to argue that there was nothing illegal about son Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting past year with a Russian attorney following a promise of damaging information on Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

Besides, roughly 4 in 10 Americans said they see Trump's campaign team intentionally helped Russian efforts to influence the election.

But the people who matter most to Trump are sticking with him, with 82 percent of GOP voters approving of his performance. Just 15 percent of blacks, meanwhile, expressed support for his performance.
