Poll shows most doubt Trump's respect for institutions

On Friday, however, the president and his administration got some good news from the latest poll from Rassmussen Reports that showed the president breaking even at 50 percent approval and 50 percent disapproval, his highest approval rating in a while.

Overall, 43 percent approve of the job Trump is doing in office, while 51 percent disapprove.

Among whites without a college education, who voted overwhelmingly in favor of Trump previous year, 50 percent say they approve of Trump, down slightly from 58 percent in March. Twenty-eight percent of the GOP thought Trump was not keeping his promises about fighting corruption in D.C. Overall, the Quinnipiac survey found Trump's approval rating had dipped to a new low of just 34 percent.

Israel greenlights largest West Bank settlement construction in 25 years
The last round of peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians collapsed in 2014, mainly over the expansion of the settlements. Almost 400,000 Jewish settlers are estimated to be living in the West Bank along with 2.8 million Palestinians.

The poll conducted by the Associated Press was done before the shooting incident at a baseball field on Wednesday, June 14, which left a congressman injured. Trump's support among Democrats and independents has always been pretty dismal-but now things are growing worse among his own party and the demographic groups that largely thrust him into the White House. Denmon referenced recent news reports that Trump was considering firing Robert Mueller, the special counsel named by the Justice Department to investigate Russia's role in the 2016 election.

More than half of the voters said Trump does not have the temperament to serve as president, but that number reflects strong Democratic antipathy to the president. Comey has said Trump was trying to influence his handling of the Russian Federation investigation. For example, as long as Trump maintains 80 percent job approval among Texas Republicans, it is inconceivable that Republicans in the Texas congressional delegation will entertain any idea of impeachment proceedings. Still, the Supreme Court, which many conservatives cited as their reason for supporting Trump during the presidential campaign, was the top vote-getter with 38 percent.

Sixty-three percent disapprove of Trump's handling of foreign policy, 60 percent disapprove of his handling of immigration, and 55 percent disapprove of how he's handling the economy. Last week the same poll taken showed the president at 46 percent approval and 54 percent disapproval.

For that reason, he said he was switching the venue to Tverskaya Street, Moscow's main avenue near the Kremlin. The protests in March were called to demand the resignation of Prime Minster Dmitry Medvedev.

The AP-NORC poll of 1,068 adults was conducted June 8-11 using a sample drawn from NORC's probability-based AmeriSpeak panel, which is created to be representative of the USA population.

The poll surveyed 1,068 Americans from June 8 to 11, and respondents were interviewed either by phone or online.

The margin of sampling error is +/- 2.5 percentage points with a 95 percent level of confidence.
