Trump's Approval Ratings After Six Months Are the Worst of Any President

Unpicking an American shambles: how Hillary blew her run

He is in fact historically unpopular, as a recent ABC News/Washington Post poll puts him as the least popular president over their first six months in the last 70 years, meaning he is the least popular president in his own lifetime thus far.

According to the poll, just 36 percent of Americans approve of Trump's performance as president, down six points from Trump's 100 days approval rating-which was itself the lowest for any president in polling history at that point.

The poll was conducted between July 10 and July 13 and comes as Trump continues to weather ongoing controversies surrounding his ties to Russian Federation and as his campaign is investigated for possible collusion with Russian Federation during the 2016 election.

One week after The New York Times revealed that Donald Trump Jr met with a Russian lawyer to discuss damaging information on Hillary Clinton, Americans are growing more suspicious of the Trump campaign's ties to Moscow.

With respect to the meeting, 63% of respondents believe Trump Jr.'s actions were inappropriate.

In terms of negotiating on the United States' behalf, 66% are less trusting of Trump working with world leaders, and the same percentage was less trusting of Trump dealing with Russia President Vladimir Putin. Six in 10 also think Russian Federation tried to influence the campaign, and among those who say so, 67 percent think Trump aides helped, similar to results in April.

Almost half of respondents (48%) believe USA leadership has gotten weaker under Trump, compared to 27% who say it's gotten stronger.

Jared Kushner, Mr Trump's son-in-law and current White House senior adviser, and then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort also attended the meeting with Donald Trump Jr.

Asked whether the president would use his "Made in America" week to commit the Trump organization and his daughter's brand to make more of their products in America, rather than overseas, Ferre was non-committal.

Trump's approval scores have continued to drop precipitously, as it was up at 42 percent back in April. The poll also found that half of those surveyed preferred Obamacare to the GOP plan to replace it, while only 24 percent preferred the Republican plan. Overall, 60 percent of all American adults said Russian Federation tried to tilt the elections, a slight increase from 56 percent in April. "Under the leadership of President Donald Trump, not only will the American worker never be forgotten, but they will be championed". More worrisome for the administration is that "roughly four in 10 believe members of Mr Trump's campaign intentionally aided Russian efforts to influence the election, though suspicions have changed little since the spring", the poll said.

A bio on the website of Cobb's former firm, Hogan Lovells, says that "Clients managing crises, allegations of corruption, and other critical matters turn to Ty to guide them".
