With approval rating falling further, Trump blames media for 'distorting democracy'

The approval rating poll held by Gallup revealed Trump's approval rating at just 36% which already showed a 6% decline since the last approval rating poll at Trump's 100 days in the office.

The presidential approval poll surveyed adults in those "Trump counties" that either flipped from former President Barack Obama or where Trump trumped Mitt Romney's 2012 performance. Sixty-eight percent find them "inappropriate", 65 percent "insulting", 52 percent even "dangerous".

A Gallup poll released Monday showed that 40 percent of USA adults agreed with Mr. Trump on the issues, but just 34 percent said he had presidential personality and leadership qualities.

Forty-eight per cent of people think the US's place as a global leader has weakened under Mr Trump, compared to 27 per cent who say it has strengthened, the poll found.

Around two-thirds condemned his son's meeting with a Russian lawyer linked to the Kremlin.

Amid a seemingly endless stream of stories set in small-town restaurants wherein President Trump's hard-core supporters explain they don't care about his collusion with Russian Federation, a major new poll underlines a hard truth: He is still really unpopular.

Bennett further ruled out the possibility of Trump's impeachment in Congress, noting that the attempt will not succeed, because opponents are lacking strong arguments and they "cannot have an impeachment of a president without high crimes and misdemeanors".

The candidate for beatification must also "exercise, at least in ordinary degree, the Christian virtues before bidding of life and, later, to the death".

Forty-three percent approve of the president's handling of the economy, while 41 percent disapprove.

Mr Trump responded to the ABC/Washington Post poll on Monday morning.

Obama's worst approval rating was 40 percent, which was recorded during his sixth year in the White House.

Just 28 per cent of those polled said they think Trump is making significant progress toward his goals, while 55 per cent think otherwise. Seventy percent say Trump has acted in a way that is "unpresidential".

The poll also offers a look at the perception of the Democratic party. In the Bloomberg poll, 40 percent of respondents approved of the job he is doing as president, while 56 percent disapproved.

The Post-ABC poll was conducted from July 10-13 among a random national sample of 1001 adults via on both mobile and landline phones. "Among disapprovers who named issues as their biggest criticism, the most common were immigration (8 percent) and health care (7 percent), the travel ban at 3 percent and others at 2 percent or less".
