Donald Trump Is Trying To Reinvent Counting

Indeed, Trump was unlikely to take news of the poll well, as his approval rating in the survey is unusually low, with only Gerald Ford's six-month rating in 1975 coming close, when he saw a 39% approval rating at a similar stage in his tenure, ABC News reported.

Republicans' legislative struggles may also be weighing on Trump's popularity. 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.

Despite the fact that Trump campaigned as someone skilled at making deals that would be good for the country, majorities in the poll also say they do not trust him in negotiations with foreign leaders and in particular Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Trump has previously described the political storm over his son's meeting as "the greatest witch-hunt in political history" and "sad!" and said anyone would have taken the meeting as offered. Almost four in 10 Republicans, 38 percent, say his conduct has been unpresidential rather than "fitting and proper" for a president. None of the president's modern predecessors have been in this position, and opposition to Trump has reached levels Obama and Clinton never saw at any point in their years in the Oval Office. Among his approvers, the economy and jobs top the list (cited by 11 percent total), followed by positive attributes - speaking his mind (9 percent) and strong leadership (again 9 percent). The poll's margin of error was plus-or-minus 3.5 points.

Trump, who has spent the weekend at his private golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, attempted to downplay the poll's findings. Seventy percent say Trump has acted in a way that is "unpresidential". Just 13 percent strongly approve. 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".

Just seven percent of Republicans said the Trump campaign intentionally helped Russian efforts, compared with 65 percent of Democrats.

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

And just 27 percent say USA leadership on the world's stage has gotten stronger while 48 percent say it has grown weaker under Trump.

Sixty percent said they believe Russian Federation tried to influence the 2016 presidential election, up four points from April.
