Trump's approval rating is 50 percent in counties that voted for him

Mainstream Media CNN Fake News Get Trump

He tweeted that winning 40 percent approval wasn't bad "at this time" and claimed that ABC and The Washington Post's polling was the most inaccurate leading up to the election.

Roughly half of the poll's respondents said Mr Trump is doing a worse job than most past presidents, while just under a 25 per cent say he is doing better, and a similar share say he is faring about the same as previous presidents. Of those 50 percent of people who approve, 29 percent do so "strongly", while of the 46 percent who disapprove, 35 percent do so "strongly".

Approximately so low approval ratings (39%) after six months of his tenure was President Gerald Ford in February 1975.

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.

- 26 percent believe it was appropriate for Trump's son, Donald Jr., to meet last summer with a Russian lawyer who said she had damaging information about Hillary Clinton.

Six months after serving as the president, Obama had 59 percent approval rating and Clinton had 45 percent approval rating, the poll said.

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.

Most respondents (66 percent) said they do not or only somewhat trust Trump in negotiating with foreign leaders, especially with Russian President Vladimir Putin (also 66 percent).

Trump, who has spent the weekend at his private golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, attempted to downplay the poll's findings. Forty-eight percent say America is weaker than it had been before Trump took office, with only 27 percent saying it's stronger. On the Russian question, 60 percent of Americans now believe that country tried to influence the us election.

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

However, there was some good news for the president, with 43 percent approving of his handling of the economy (41 percent disapprove). "If Trump's at 36% approve/58% disapprove, with 32% approval among independents, GOP won't hold the House", Bill Kristol, a Republican pundit and editor-at-large of The Weekly Standard conservative news magazine tweeted on Sunday. Twice as many of those surveyed preferred the Obamacare health program as favoured Republican plans to replace it.
