"The drop in the President's approval rating is partially due to ebbing support among Republicans", CBS notes.
Trump boasted that his high approval rating was higher than his predecessor, Barack Obama, at this point in his presidency.
An ABC News/Washington Post poll about Trump's first 100 days released in April showed a 53 percent disapproval, 42 percent approval rate. An average of the major national polls compiled by Real Clear Politics put Obama's approval rating on June 16, 2009, at 59.6%.
The poll shows that US adults aren't happy about how Trump has handled the Russian Federation investigation, as just 28 percent approve of his performance. Among Democrats, it was 88 percent against and 10 percent favoring interference. His firing of FBI Director James Comey and comments suggesting the move was connected to the bureau's Russian Federation probe, as well as his near-constant focus on the investigation, might not be helping him with the American people.
The margin of error is 4 points. However, 56 percent of Americans think Mueller will be impartial, and 81 percent polled don't think the president should stop Mueller's investigation. Forty-three percent approved of him in early April, a number that dropped to 41 percent by late April and now has hit the new low of 36 percent in late June. This includes one-third of Republican voters who now think that Trump is prioritizing his own administration over the nation in this regard. More than half of those surveyed by CBS, 57 per cent, are on team Comey.
Other recent surveys haven't brought good news for Trump either. Fifty-seven percent now disapprove.
According to CBS, Congress is not doing much better in the eyes of its constituents: the majority of Americans would like more transparency about Republican efforts to replace the Affordable Healthcare Act, and hold negative views overall of the capabilities of both parties.
