Days: How Trump's Low Approval Ratings Compare to Past Presidents

Just a third of respondents said they approved of his handling of the Islamic State group, and 37 percent said he was properly dealing with the economy.

"The country wasn't based on executive orders", said Trump at a town hall in SC in February 2016.

US President Donald Trump's approval rating has showed no signs of improvement amid sharp partisan divides and a failure to capitalise on post-election strengths, a new poll has revealed.

And that can sometimes be an enabling force that fuels some of his worst impulses - whether by reaffirming his attacks on the media or sharing personal anecdotes that Trump later seizes on as evidence to support his political views and sometimes his most unfounded opinions.

The poll from ABC/Washington stated that 62% of the Republican Party and 67% of Democratic Party said they felt their party and its leaders were "out of touch" with what people really want. "It's true, you can't tear your eyes away from Sean Spicer", Noah said. This comes as a curious turnabout because in his address to the nation, right after he was elected to power, he made several promises that he vowed to fulfill within this 100 day period since assuming office. Overall, 73 percent of those surveyed disapproved of the president's use of the platform. Despite still being early days of Trump's first term, it has been an eventful few months for the native New Yorker as he adjusts to Washington and the complex arena that is geopolitics. President Trump was elected with 49.9 percent of the vote in North Carolina in November, but only 41.6 percent of voters now approve of the job he's doing as president.

About 40 percent said they'd give Trump an "F" grade on his first 100 days. The poll results have a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percentage points.

The survey also found that the overwhelming majority of respondents were deeply skeptical of the media: Trump's assertion that the news media are "the enemy of the American people" was backed by 88% of them. Plenty, according to Wednesday's Elon Poll. The poll also found 60 percent of voters oppose building a wall along the Mexican border. Pretty much everyone told Team Trump it was likely to lose this case - and that's exactly what's happening.

Among other groups, suspicion that Russian Federation tried to influence the campaign peaks at 83 percent Clinton voters, compared with 28 percent of Trump voters.
