Trump Gets Record Low Poll Count

President Donald Trump is taking a battering in the poll as he continues to fail to get his agenda jump started.

Dogged by speculation on whether his election campaign had help from Russia, Trump cannot help but continue shadow boxing until Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller concludes his investigation.

In the meantime, Americans are not happy with the President and are making this known in the polls.

The President had the lowest six-month approval rating of any president in polls dating back 70 years.

The most recent poll has drawn on questions about his competence on the world stage, his effectiveness, the GOP health care plan, and Russia’s role in the 2016 election.

Just 36 percent of Americans polled in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll approve of Trump’s job performance, down 6 points from his 100-day mark, itself a low.

The previous president closest to this level at or near six months was Gerald Ford, at 39 percent, in February 1975.
