  • Donald Trump's approval hits record low

Fifty percent of USA citizens say the 45th president is doing a worse job than most past presidents, while just under 25 percent say he is doing better than his predecessors.

The survey released yesterday showed just 36% of Americans thought he was doing a good job. Fifty-eight percent disapprove, the vast majority of them "strongly".

The approval rating was the lowest in the poll's 70-year history, and eclipsed the 1975 mark of 39 per cent for Gerald Ford in February 1975 after he pardoned Richard Nixon in the fallout of the Watergate scandal.

Besides, it also showed that 48 percent of the respondents see the USA leadership in the world as weaker since Trump's inauguration, with only 27 percent believing it to be stronger.

Sixty-three per cent of Americans felt a meeting between the President's son Donald Trump Jr and a Russian lawyer who claimed to have damaging information about Hillary Clinton was "inappropriate".

Bill Clinton also had a high disapproval rating when he took charge in 1993 but it was still seven points lower than Trump's after six months.

However, Mr Trump took to Twitter to denigrate the poll, saying it had been "just about the most inaccurate" during the election a year ago.

Two-thirds of those surveyed also said they do not trust Trump to negotiate with other world leaders.

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. Forty-eight percent say America is weaker than it had been before Trump took office, with only 27 percent saying it's stronger. Overall, 60 percent of all American adults said Russian Federation tried to tilt the elections, a slight increase from 56 percent in April. Trump won the presidency by capturing the Electoral College, but Clinton won the popular vote by nearly 2.9 million votes, 65,853,625 to 62,985,106 - a margin of 2.1 percent and well within the ABC/Washington Post poll's margin of error of plus or minus 2.5 percentage points.

The survey showed that 82 percent of Republicans approved of Trump versus just 11 percent among Democrats.

Some 60 percent of USA citizens think Russian Federation sought to interfere, though Democrats are far more likely to believe that than members of Trump's Republican Party. Meanwhile, only 59 per cent of Republicans back their party's proposal, though only 11 per cent say they prefer Obamacare.
