Approval of President Trump drops to lowest since inauguration: Reuters/Ipsos poll

May 20, 2017, 15:23

The Post said its sources would not further identify the official, who was described as a senior White House adviser who is close to Mr Trump.

President Trump's approval ratings have hit another low in new polls, following drama filled weeks of and controversial decisions in the White House. The remaining 6 percent had "mixed feelings".

Another recent poll conducted by Politico and Morning Consult found that 53% of respondents disapproved of the job Trump is doing as president, while only 41% approved, the lowest rating in that poll since he took office.

When asked if the statement "he is able to serve as Commander-in-Chief" applied to Donald Trump, 50 percent said "no", while 40 percent said "yes".

Another 55% said Trump's disclosure made them feel "not confident" with his ability to handle highly classified information, while almost as many (52%) said the disclosure made them feel "not confident" in the President's ability to keep the country safe from terrorism. Trump explicitly denies that there has been intrigue with Russian Federation and characterizes the ongoing research at the heart of the witch hunt research.

Americans appear to have soured on Trump after a tumultuous week in the White House during which the president fought back a steady drumbeat of critical news reports that ramped up concerns about his administration's ties to Russian Federation.

The analysts say Trump still remains popular and can manage the situation.

Forty-one percent of voters said they are "not confident at all" in Trump's ability to handle classified information, and another 14% said they are "not too confident".

According to the Morning Consult/Politico poll, it was a bad week for the President with the majority of the 1,970 registered voters polled between May 16 and 18 (margin of error plus or minus two percentage points).
