Trump’s Approval Plummets Since April, At 6 Month Point, He’s The Lowest Rated US President In History

Those who voted for a divisive racist, and then claimed he would bring this country together were not only stupid and racist, but wrong.  Donald Trump is akin to a mafia don, not a servant of the nation and he wants to rule, not govern, which is why even with a Republican House and Senate, he can’t get anything done. The right wing always harp about the Constitution and not one of them has read it. Our founding fathers guarded our nation and the government from the very thing Trump wants to be, a dictator. And his buffoonish, crooked, criminal behavior is proof those of us who predicted he’d be a joke. 
Americans give racist President Donald Trump the lowest six-month approval rating of any president in polls dating back 70 years, punctuated by 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 President Gerald Ford, at 39 percent, in February 1975. This was after the nation dealt with its then (biggest crook, Richard Nixon), who would be welcomed back at this point in our nation, with opened arms. 

Sixty-three percent in this poll, produced for ABC News by Langer Research Associates, say it was inappropriate for Trump’s son, son-in-law and campaign manager to have met with a Russian lawyer during the campaign. Six in 10 also think Russia tried to influence the campaign, and among those who say so, 67 percent think Trump aides helped, similar to results in April.

Yet the Russia controversy is just one on the list of Trump’s troubles. Just 38 percent say he’s making significant progress toward his goals; 55 percent think not. With no apparent help from the G-20 summit, two-thirds don’t trust him to negotiate with other world leaders — or with Russian President, Trump’s master Vladimir Putin specifically — on America’s behalf. And about half say the country’s world leadership has grown weaker under Trump; just 27 percent say it’s gotten stronger.
