Trump Approval Ratings: Is The President Gaining Ground Despite Russia Investigation?

Yet among whites without a college education the president's approval rating stands at just 50 percent, according to the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll.

President Trump was back to singing a familiar tune Friday, touting his latest poll numbers, courtesy of Rasmussen Reports.

Republicans were also much less likely than Democrats to think Russian Federation influenced the 2016 presidential election, with only 9 percent of Republicans compared with 75 percent of Democrats taking that view. The percentage of Republicans who strongly approved of Trump's presidential performance decreased 12 points, from 60 percent in February to 48 points in June.

Rasmussen has been a consistent outlier since Trump took office, however, with the president sitting at 39.9 percent when averaging all major approval polls, including Rasmussen.

The AP poll found that nine in every 10 Democrats and six in every 10 independents agreed that Trump disrespected the country's democratic institutions-but, in a particularly revealing result, a third of Republican participants said the same-one in four going so far as to entirely disapprove of him as president.

Given the mutually reinforcing effects of partisan polarization in the electorate and the intensity of both positive and negative feelings toward Trump, it is no surprise that the poll reveals that Democratic attitudes are the opposite, with the qualification that they are slightly more negative than the Republicans are positive.

Here is everything Trump has tweeted since he was sworn in as 45th president of the United States.

Health care remains Trump's worst issue in the poll, with 66 percent disapproving of his handling of the issue. Among Republicans, 80 percent approve. Still, the Supreme Court, which many conservatives cited as their reason for supporting Trump during the presidential campaign, was the top vote-getter with 38 percent.

On RealClearPolitics poll aggregator for "Trump's Favorability" and "Direction of the Country", Trump also showed the slightest uptick.

Among Republicans, 28 percent disapprove of Trump's handling of foreign policy and climate change and 22 percent disapprove of his handling of immigration, but less than 2 in 10 disapprove of how he's handling the economy or terrorism. Last week the same poll taken showed the president at 46 percent approval and 54 percent disapproval.

The AP-NORC poll of 1,068 adults was conducted June 8-11 using a sample drawn from NORC's probability-based AmeriSpeak panel, which is created to be representative of the US population.

The poll surveyed 1,068 Americans from June 8 to 11, and respondents were interviewed either by phone or online.

The margin of sampling error is +/- 2.5 percentage points with a 95 percent level of confidence.
