Poll finds Americans inclined to believe James Comey over Trump

Trump is getting 72 percent approval from Republicans and just nine percent approval from Democrats. The same survey released from the organization on Monday shows Trump's approval rating back under water - with 48 percent of the country approving of his performance, while 52 percent disapprove.

The poll shows that USA adults aren't happy about how Trump has handled the Russian Federation investigation, as just 28 percent approve of his performance.

As Donald Trump continues to crumble under the weight of the ongoing Russian Federation investigation, as well as his stalled legislative agenda, he took to Twitter on Monday to retweet a junk poll released last week that showed his approval rating at 50 percent.

Real Clear Politics average of major polls, which includes the latest results from Rasmussen Reports, shows 40 percent approve of the job President Trump is doing compared to 53 percent who disapprove.

UK leader May strikes tentative deal with N Ireland party
While DUP opposes same-sex marriage and abortion, its focus in Westminster may be more on issues specific to Northern Ireland . But for now, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson says reports of a plot to remove May herself is "tripe".

Trump also said his polling numbers were higher than that of former President Obama. Trump's approval rating has declined over the last few months in the CBS News poll. About one-third said Trump's approach on the process has left them thinking less of the president. But on the other side of the aisle, only 32 percent see the investigations as a distraction, while 27 percent see it was a serious issue, and 39 percent view it as a critical issue of national security. Several congressional probes are under way, as is a criminal investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, a former director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. However, 56 percent of Americans think Mueller will be impartial, and 81 percent polled don't think the president should stop Mueller's investigation.

Although Utah is one of the most Republican states in the nation, Trump won in 2016 with less than a majority of the vote, 45.5 percent.

Other recent surveys haven't brought good news for Trump either. Forty-six percent of all polled approved of his response to the tragedy.
