Trump's approval rating strikes a new low

Donald Trump

Of 1,503 people surveyed, 32 percent approved of the way Trump is handling his job as president - the lowest level since he took office, the latest poll by Pew Research Center shows. As Axios noted, Trump's approval rating had either remained the same or dropped among every demographic group Pew polled.

Forty-one percent of white Americans say they approve of Trump, compared to 49 percent in February. Only 12 percent of those who said there was probably or definitely no improper contact held the same view.

While 30 percent of respondents think senior Trump officials "definitely" had contacts with Russian Federation a year ago during the campaign, 59 percent responded they believe the contacts either "definitely" or "probably" occurred.

Only 30 percent of respondents said collusion between Trump officials and the Kremlin "definitely or probably did not happen".

Additionally, the game hit a new milestone this past weekend, peaking at 1.3 million concurrent players. The mode is only going to be available until 17 December so make the most of it while you can.

The poll conducted between November 29 and Monday has a margin of error of 2.9 percentage points.

In a major development last week, Michael Flynn, Trump's first national security adviser, pleaded guilty to lying to Federal Bureau of Investigation officials about his contacts with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in the month before Trump took office.

A total of 67 of the poll's participants said that senior Trump advisors were "very likely" or "somewhat likely" to have improper dealings with Russian Federation before Donald Trump was sworn in as president, while a total of 26% said that it was "not very likely" or "not at all likely". "Trump's early-term unpopularity is unusual".

Trump is the least popular president in modern history, according to FiveThirtyEight. "In the decades since World War II, the average first-term president before Trump had an approval rating of 62 percent on his 175th day in office", the site wrote in July, when Trump's approval rating was 39 percent.
