Connelly: Poll shows vulgarity of Trump getting under Americans' skin

The fresh poll indicated the overall approval rating for Trump has dropped to 36 percent from 42 percent since April, the lowest for any president in polling history since Harry Truman at the six-month mark.

Trump, who took to Twitter to blast the ABC/Washington Post poll as "just about the most inaccurate poll around election time", now boasts the lowest approval ratings of any American president during his first half-year in the past 70 years.

President Donald Trump already had low approval ratings. This drop in popularity isn't too surprising given the allegations that have swirled around Trump and his team concerning collusion with Russian Federation as well as stumbles overseas.

At the heart of Mr Trump's problems appears to be accusations of Russian involvement in last year's presidential election.

The Gallup tracking poll averaging results on Trump's performance over a three-day period showed a similar current negative finding on Friday, 57-38 unfavorable.

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.

Seoul Seeks New Talks With North Korea, Hoping To Tamp Down Tensions
China, North Korea's neighbor and closest ally, is responsible for 90 percent of trade with the country. The last time talks between Seoul and Pyongyang took place, was in December 2015.

So here are the facts: Donald Trump is less popular at the six-month mark of his presidency than eight of the nine men who have held the office before him.

"Almost half of respondents - 48 per cent - said they" disapprove strongly" of the president's performance in office, a low level never reached by ex-presidents or, both Democrats, and reached only once by George W Bush, during his second term. Overall, 48 percent say they "disapprove strongly" of the current USA president's performance in office. However, almost half (48 percent) of all Republicans polled said the meeting was in fact appropriate.

President Trump is rubbing Americans the wrong way rather than putting them at ease, with more giving him a thumbs-down nearing the six-month point in his presidency than any recent occupant of the Oval Office.

On the plus side, opinions about Trump's economic proposals were evenly divided, with 43 percent of respondents approving and 41 percent disapproving. More than a quarter of Democrats-27 percent-say their party "just stands against Trump".

The poll was conducted between from July 10 to July 13 among a random sample of over 1,000 adults being surveyed over the phone, with a margin error of 3.5 points.
