The presidential approval poll surveyed adults in those "Trump counties" that either flipped from former President Barack Obama or where Trump trumped Mitt Romney's 2012 performance.

The number is down from 42% in April, while his disapproval numbers have risen to 58%.

However, In Trump's case, the disapproval rate accelerated quite rapidly because Trump's unpopularity comes just after six months of his presidency at the lowest as compared to Barrack Obama, whose disapproval went least in his sixth year of Presidency.

And yet, the media's incessant Russian Federation coverage has not even convinced that many more Democrats that Trump's associates intentionally helped Russian Federation influence the election.

"I wonder why the Secret Service, if this was nefarious, why the Secret Service allowed these people in", attorney Jay Sekulow said this morning of the meeting Donald Trump Jr. arranged with a Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign.

The previous president, whose approval rating was very close to this level at or near six months, was Gerald Ford, who received 39 percent in February 1975.

Opinion is also almost evenly split with regards to how Trump is handling the economy.

On Sunday night, Sekulow told CNN that Trump did not know about the meeting, saying: "The president was not engaged in this, was not aware of it".

President Donald Trump Saturday announced through Twitter that the stock market is at an all time high - "despite the Russian hoax story" - and that job numbers are looking good. He repeated an earlier assertion that Trump is not the subject of any current investigation into alleged Russian efforts to tilt last year's election in the Republican's favour. Asked specifically about Trump-Putin negotiations, nearly 2 in 3 say they do not trust the president much, including 48 percent who say they do not trust the president "at all". Fifty-five percent of respondents said he was making no significant progress towards his policy goals.

The approval rating for Trump, who approaches six months in office, is lower than that of any of his predecessors in 70 years, Xinhua reported.

Sekulow also said that there was nothing illegal in the meeting with the Russian lawyer and a Russian American lobbyist.

Recall that the congressmen brad Sherman and al green from the Democratic party launched an initiative on impeachment of the President of the United States Donald Trump.

Sixteen percent said they aren't ready to rate his performance.

Of those polled who count themselves as conservative Republicans, Trump received a 90-percent approval.
