On Friday, however, the president and his administration got some good news from the latest poll from Rassmussen Reports that showed the president breaking even at 50 percent approval and 50 percent disapproval, his highest approval rating in a while.

The poll also found that 65% of responds feel that Trump has "little or no respect for the country's democratic institutions and traditions".

The latest data from Rasmussen shows that 32% of the responders strongly approve of Trump's performance.

Fifty-one percent of those surveyed between June 2 and June 11 said they disapprove of the president's job performance.

More than half of the voters said Trump does not have the temperament to serve as president, but that number reflects strong Democratic antipathy to the president.

"Witch hunt' is how Trump characterizes the probe into Russia's election interference and possible ties to his campaign associates".

The strongest evidence of Texas Republican voters' embrace of the president who both defied their party's leadership and defeated a handful of Texas-based candidates in the 2016 presidential primary is the sustained approval of the job he is doing as president.

"If they would leave him alone and let him do what the American taxpayers voted him in there to do, this country would be a whole lot better off", said Draper, 64. Sixty-six percent of white voters without college degrees cast their ballot for Trump, according to CNN's exit polls. The public at large thinks Trump's conduct has been improper, and Americans are not so entranced with Trump's agenda that they feel desperate to preserve his presidency. Among the Republicans who have an unfavorable view of Russian Federation, 20 percent have a very unfavorable view, compared to 53 percent of Democrats whose views are very unfavorable - a remarkable reversal of the attitudes toward Russian Federation expressed in American politics in the post-World War II era.

Among all respondents, 53 percent said Trump was honest and 55 percent said he was trustworthy.

Among Republicans, 28 per cent disapprove of Trump's handling of foreign policy and climate change and 22 per cent disapprove of his handling of immigration, but less than 2 in 10 disapprove of how he's handling the economy or terrorism.

The poll also found that most Americans think that "politics is to blame for this week's shooting attack on Republican members of Congress and aren't writing it off as just random violence".
