Majority Says Transgender People Should Be Allowed to Serve in US Military

The majority of 1,125 voters across the USA in the poll said Mr Trump was not honest, did not have good leadership skills, was not intelligent and did not care about them. Six months in, Trump had the worst approval rating of any president since modern polling began.

And though, as TIME reported this week of Rasmussen, "Trump has regularly tweeted links to the polling outfit, long a favorite among conservatives, when it's shown him doing better on his approval rating than other polls", he's not done so this week. The data shows that Donald Trump's approval rating among Republicans is where he experienced his steepest decline, thus further eroding his political base and distancing himself from the people who elected him president to start with.

Eric Trump, who's ostensibly steering clear of politics and helping run his father's business, appeared on Fox News this week and boasted about Donald Trump's broad popularity. Fifty percent of that key voting bloc that helped propel the real estate mogul to the White House now say they are unhappy with the president and 43 percent approve.

"Profound embarrassment over his performance in office and deepening concern over his levelheadedness have to raise the biggest red flags", he said.

The poll also found that negativity towards Trump ran stronger than positivity. Only 2%(!) of Democrats approve of the way the president is handling his job. In late June, 84% of Republicans approved of Trump's performance - now, 76% of Republicans say the same.

The poll was conducted July 27-August 1; Trump announced the ban July 26.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning fact-checker PolitiFact ruled Trump's tweet to be mostly false, noting that the conservative-leaning polling group had actually found higher approval for Obama during the same timeframe in his first term.

Americans are increasingly dissatisfied with President Trump's on-the-job performance, according to new polls out this week.

The June 29 national poll found Trump gets small bump from American voters; voters want Democrats to control House, Senate. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points. Its full results can be viewed here.
