Trump's six-month approval rating falls to a record low

18 Julio 2017, 02:38 | Bibiana Flor

Trump, who has spent the weekend at his private golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, attempted to downplay the poll's findings.

The previous record holder was former President Gerald Ford, who netted only a 39 percent approval rating six months after assuming office.

Humiliating polls have been a constant of his presidency - even before he officially assumed office.

Americans also questioned the president's effectiveness, the results show.

The latest results follow news that Jr. met with a Russian lawyer offering damaging information about Democratic candidate.

57 percent of born-again Christians back Trump.

"Politicians always want to claim they are doing well in the polls", said Karlyn Bowman, a polling expert at the American Enterprise Institute.

Trump spun his approval number as 'almost 40%,' saying it's 'not bad at this time'.

Bill Clinton also had a high disapproval rating when he took charge in 1993 but it was still seven points lower than Trump's after six months.

Seventy percent of those polled said that Trump has performed in an "unpresidential" way since taking office: 68 percent didn't believe him to be a positive roll model.

In the counties Trump won in November 2016, 50% of adults approve of his job performance, according to a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll released Sunday.

Fifty-five percent said they don't think Trump is making significant progress on his campaign goals, and two-thirds said they don't trust Trump to negotiate with foreign leaders. The poll also found that half of those surveyed preferred Obamacare to the GOP plan to replace it, while only 24% preferred the Republican plan. Only 37 per cent of Americans "say the Democratic Party now stands for something, while 52 per cent viewed it as it "just stands against Trump".

But, Sunday morning, Mr. Trump thanked his supporters and accused so-called fake news media of scorning his son. The margin of error was +/- 3.5 percentage points.

Pollsters surveyed 1,001 Americans by phone from July 10-13. Trump has an 82 percent approval rating among all Republicans vs. 11 percent among Democrats.
