In a poll released on August 17, the president's approval rating had dropped to 35 percent.

"A$3 large majority of voters - 71 percent - agreed his "behavior is not what I expect from a president" (27 percent disagreed), and 68 percent agreed his "words and actions could get us accidentally involved in an worldwide conflict" (29 percent disagreed)", the poll said.
