NORC poll: Few favor Trump move to ditch Paris accord

The new Rasmussen Poll one of the most accurate in the 2016 Election just out with a Trump 50% Approval Rating. That's higher than O's #'s! Trump wrote on Sunday morning. The president

Just 28 percent of respondents approved of the way he's handled the probe, according to CBS, while 63 percent disapprove. At the moment, 72 percent of Republicans approve of Trump's performance, down 11 percentage points since April.

This is Trump's lowest approval rating since he took office, his highest rating came in April at 43 percent, but he's not alone.

Not only does Rasmussen have a clear slant toward the GOP president, but the poll referenced in Trump's retweet is from last week.

ADVERTISEMENTOut of issues including terrorism, the recent lawmaker shooting and the economy, respondents give the president his most negative scores on his handling of the Russian Federation probe.

Mr Trump appeared to have confirmed that he was being investigated for links to Russian Federation himself when he tweeted about Mr Mueller: "I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!" The poll showed 39% deeming it "a critical issue of national security", while 32% saw it as a "political distraction".

Half of Americans say that criticism of Mr. Trump doesn't change their opinion of him at all, but 71 percent say Mr. Trump has received more criticism than past presidents. Trump's response to the investigation has a greater effect than his stance on the economy or his response to the recent Congressional shooting in Virginia.

Most Americans, 57 percent, believe Comey more than Trump, 31 percent.


The President disputed former FBI Director James Comey's account of their private meetings, and who Americans believe is driven by partisanship. That credibility gap is much more pronounced among Democrats: 84 percent believe Comey and only 8 percent believe Trump.

But 81% said Trump should make no attempt to stop the investigation.

In addition, the television network said its poll showed Trump losing support among Republicans.

A gender divide remains: as they have from the start of his presidency, men are more likely than women to approve of the job Mr. Trump is doing.

In the same poll, Americans were asked about their views of the Republican effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Healthcare Act, or Obamacare.

Another CBS poll found that most Americans - 73% - would prefer a public discussion on the Republicans' health care replacement bill and feel they don't have a good understanding of what the new plan would do.

The latest daily tracking survey from Rasmussen pegged Trump's approval at 48 percent, down from 50 percent Friday.
