Majority of Americans concerned about Trump ditching Paris climate agreement

The president's approval rating, which has proved historically bad since he took office, has sunk again.

Just 36 percent of voters said they approved when asked "Do you approve or disapprove of the way Donald Trump is handling his job as president?" the poll stated.

The only government official who scored higher than Trump in Zogby's poll was Trump's Secretary of Defense James Mattis, who scored an approval rating of 43 percent. His disapproval rating, meanwhile, has jumped to 57%.

But even general support for Mr Trump among his party has dwindled, from 83 per cent in April to 72 per cent in June.

In Rasmussen's survey conducted June 13, which included 1,500 likely US voters and a margin of error of 3 percentage points, only 43 percent of likely voters approved of Trump's presidency.

In the poll released Tuesday, a third of Americans say Trump's approach to the Russian Federation investigation has worsened their opinion of him.

Out of the issues including terrorism, the recent shooting and the economy, respondents give the president his most negative scores on his handling of the Russian Federation probe.

General election 'had biggest generation gap since 1970s'
The figure is the highest since 1992, when 67 percent of 18-24 year old cast a ballot. Focusing on the right issues also motivated young people to get involved .

When asked about the objective of the investigations, 32 percent believe it is a political distraction that should be put aside, 27 percent said it's serious but not as serious as other issues and 39 percent called it a critical issue of national security. Twenty-seven percent thought it was a serious issue but not as serious as other issues.

The CBS poll was of 1,117 adults nationwide and was conducted between June 15 and June 18.

The latest poll has a margin of error of 4 percentage points.

Other recent surveys haven't brought good news for Trump either.

Polls showing the president this close to a majority approval rating are impossible to come by because they don't exist, so it's no surprise that the insecure Trump would lean on an outlier survey from a Republican-leaning pollster.

When CBS last polled Trump's job approval rating in late April, his approval rating was 41%.
