New polling shows Trump's support slipping among Republicans

Poll shows most doubt Trump's respect for institutions

Poll shows most doubt Trump's respect for institutions

Mr Trump tweeted on 18 June a new Rasmussen Poll, which found that he had a 50 per cent approval rating, a stark contrast to most other polls and higher than any other rating by at least eight percentage points.

Seventy-two percent of Republican respondents to the poll approved of Trump's job performance, while just 9 percent of Democratic respondents approved.

The poll shows that USA adults aren't happy about how Trump has handled the Russian Federation investigation, as just 28 percent approve of his performance.

Released Tuesday, the CBS poll found that 36 percent of Americans approve of the job Trump is doing, his lowest rating in the CBS News poll since he became president in January.

Risk of severe thunderstorms, hail, flash flooding Monday
The organization warned that flash flooding is risky and that residents should be prepared to take safety measures. Forecasters predict isolated showers between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., when heavier storms are expected to roll through.

Contrast that with today's Gallup poll showing Trump's approval rating at a much more believable 38 percent, and the RealClearPolitics average showing the number at 40 percent. But on the other side of the aisle, only 32 percent see the investigations as a distraction, while 27 percent see it was a serious issue, and 39 percent view it as a critical issue of national security.

Over the weekend, Trump touted a Rasmussen Poll that found his approval rating was 50 percent. Fifty-seven percent of those polled believed Comey compared to 31 percent believing Trump more. Several congressional probes are under way, as is a criminal investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, a former director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. This includes one-third of Republican voters who now think that Trump is prioritizing his own administration over the nation in this regard.

Despite the President speaking against Special Counsel prosecutor Robert Mueller, who is now leading the Russian Federation investigation, more than half of those surveyed - 56 per cent - believe Mr Mueller is impartial and should be allowed to act unhindered. When looking only at Republicans, 85 percent think he is critiqued more than previous presidents, and 34 percent are more likely to support him as a result.
