US Secret Service rejects suggestion it vetted Trump Jr's meeting

On Thursday, President Trump will mark six months in office with the lowest approval rating of any president going back 70 years.

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.

Forty-eight percent "strongly" disapprove of Trump's job performance, again slightly surpassing the strongest disapproval of Obama's career, in his fifth year.

In a new poll published by ABC News, a public approval rating poll was taken on Trump's six-month run so far, and the results were. well, they're not good.

Emails released last week show that Trump Jr. believed he was meeting with Natalia Veselnitskaya, a Russian lawyer with possible ties to the Kremlin, who would provide damaging information about Clinton as part of a Russian broader effort to assist his father's presidential campaign.

It later emerged that an ex-Russian "spy" was also present, information that was not disclosed by Donald Trump Jr.

However, counties that flipped from blue to red between the 2012 and 2016 elections approve of Trump significantly less than those that voted Republican both years.

People seemed to be mostly displeased with the ongoing investigation into possible ties with Russian Federation and his campaign, his handling of healthcare and his performance when talking to world leaders. Of those, 48 percent said they do not trust Trump "at all" in negotiations with Putin. Six in 10 also think Russian Federation tried to influence the campaign, and among those who say so, 67 percent think Trump aides helped, similar to results in April.

Trump himself has said he was unaware of the meeting between his son and the Russian lawyer until a few days ago.

Trump's overall approval rating has fallen from 42 percent at the 100-day mark of his presidency in April compared to a Washington Post/ABC poll at that time.

For health care, participants prefer Obamacare over any Republican replacement, 50% to 24%. The poll also showed relatively weak perception of opposition Democrats, which only 37% of respondents believed actually "stands for something".

Among liberal Democrats, the figure if five percent.

Only 33 percent of Republicans polled said Russian Federation tried to influence the election, compared with 80 percent of Democrats.

The poll, conducted July 10-13, has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
