Trump blasts poll showing record low approval rating

Ty Cobb a partner at Hogan Lovells will join the White House to counter Russia probes according to a report

The President's approval rating tends to be higher among men than woman (12 points higher, to be exact), and higher among seniors versus those in the 18-29 year-old category.

The US intelligence community alleged that Russia meddled in the US presidential race previous year and connections existed between the Russian government and the Trump campaign, which the Kremlin has denied.

In recent weeks, the storm at the White House over alleged Russian links to Mr Trump's presidential campaign has thickened as an incendiary series of emails showed his son Donald Trump Jr worked to set up a meeting with a Russian lawyer who claimed to have incriminating materials about Hillary Clinton.

There are at least two areas where Americans say they believe Trump will deliver: nearly two-thirds say he will make significant cuts in government regulation, though it's not clear whether most think that's a good or bad thing.

But according to the ABC/Washington Post poll, 63 percent of respondents said it was inappropriate for them to have done so.

Trump has championed Republican efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act with legislation that the Congressional Budget Office said would increase the ranks of the uninsured by more than 20 million people by 2026.

Half of those surveyed said they prefer to keep the current health care law, while just 24 percent said they favour the GOP plan. For starters, the Democratic party isn't polling well either.

Most respondents (66 percent) said they do not or only somewhat trust Trump in negotiating with foreign leaders, especially with Russian President Vladimir Putin (also 66 percent). Sixty per cent believe Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 election, and 67% believe the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation.

Trump scored his best numbers on his handling of the economy, but even there the news for him isn't great.

Where Trump really differs from Obama is that his approval leans more heavily on strong backers.

As ABC News notes, Gerald Ford came close at 39%, but even he had a 15-point advantage over Trump in the disapproval column.

The president's overall approval rating has slipped to 36 percent from 42 percent in April.

Among liberal Democrats, the figure if five percent.

Disapproving respondents cited the Trump family's incredibly sketchy dealings with Russian Federation, the wildly unpopular Republican healthcare bill, and the truly embarrassing sight Trump strikes when dealing with other world leaders.

Among independents, Trump received 32 percent approval.
