Six months into his term, President Donald Trump has the lowest approval ratings of any President in the last seven decades at this point in his tenure, a new poll finds. Again, this is the worst approval rating at this time for any president in 70 years.

The president's 58 percent overall disapproval is 7 points higher than the next-highest disapproval rating at six months which belongs to President Bill Clinton in 1993, the poll shows.

However, the final estimate from The Washington Post-ABC News poll during the campaign was 47 percent for Hillary Clinton and 43 percent for Trump, compared with the final election results of 48.5 percent for Clinton to 46.4 percent for Trump. An Iowa news director emailed CNN's Brian Stelter last week and said conservatives in his state were "extremely angry" at the press because they think the legacy media are using Russian Federation stories to "oust" Trump.

Both Moscow and the Trump administration have denied any wrongdoing, with Donald Trump even saying he had confronted Russian President Vladimir Putin about it at the G20 summit.

Healthcare was also a contentious point, with 50% wanting him to keep Obamacare and not make changes.

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

Thirty-eight per cent of those surveyed believe Trump is making significant progress towards his goals, while 55% feel he is not. Forty-eight percent said that USA world leadership has weakened under Trump, with only 27% saying it has gotten stronger.

Seventeen percent said they prefer neither. His base in the Republican Party has proven remarkably committed, with the most recent Gallup polling showing 85% of Republicans approve of his performance.

Donald Trump's approval rating has plunged in a national poll, published on Sunday, that charts Americans' perceptions of a stalling domestic policy agenda and declining leadership on the world stage.

Of those polled, 66 percent said they did not trust the president to effectively represent USA interests in negotiations with foreign leaders, with two-thirds also saying they didn't trust him to do so with Putin.

A total of 63 percent of respondents said the meeting was inappropriate, while just 26 percent said it was appropriate. However, 48 percent "disapprove strongly" of his performance overall, a level never reached by his two Democratic predecessors.

The poll was conducted from July 10 to July 13 and was comprised of 1,001 adults.
