Trump's six-month approval rating hits historic low

Stutterstock  well

More U.S. adults say they agree with Donald Trump on issues (40%) than say he has the personality and leadership qualities a president should have (34%).

In fact, 18% of Americans approve of the job Trump is doing even though they do not think he has the proper make-up to be president.

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 approval rating was the lowest in the poll's 70-year history, and eclipsed the 1975 mark of 39 per cent for Gerald Ford in February 1975 after he pardoned Richard Nixon in the fallout of the Watergate scandal.

The poll, produced by Langer Research Associates from July 10-13, showed respondents were concerned by the ongoing investigation into Russia's alleged interference in the US election, the recent news Trump's son Donald Jr. had met with a Kremlin-linked Russian lawyer prior to the election, and the president's plan to repeal and replace Obamacare.

The President's strongest assets continue to be the healthy economy and a view among many Americans that the Democrats do not have a coherent message or program in opposition, other than opposition to the President.

That poll, released on the eve of the vote, showed Hillary Clinton leading Trump by 4 points (47 percent to 43 percent) nationally.

His tweets typically include tirades against the "fake news" media, exasperation with the "witch hunt" Russian Federation probe, personal attacks on perceived foes - alleging MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski was "bleeding badly from a face-lift", for example - and boasts of domestic and foreign policy accomplishments. In the Bloomberg poll, 40 percent of respondents approved of the job he is doing as president, while 56 percent disapproved. Almost four in 10 Republicans, 38 percent, say his conduct has been unpresidential rather than "fitting and proper" for a president.

Only 37 per cent of those surveyed said the Democratic Party "stands for something", while 52 per cent said it simply "stands against Trump". That belief is held by 58 percent of whites.

- 24 percent say that, since taking office, Trump has "acted in a way that's fitting and proper for a president of the United States".

Other key findings reveal that 61 percent of respondents say America is on the wrong path - up 12 points since December.
