NORC Poll: Most disapprove of Trump, except on economy

NORC Poll: Most disapprove of Trump, except on economy

But the poll suggests Trump may find it hard to step past health care.

What should be disconcerting to Republican leaders like House speaker Paul Ryan or Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and President Donald Trump is that a growing minority of Republicans-23 percent-say the ACA should be strengthened, with another seven percent saying it should be maintained in its current form.

But with Trump in the White House, Milton is so disappointed that she said she would take former President George W. Bush, who started two major wars that have killed more than 200,000 people and presided over one of the biggest economic recessions in USA history. Nineteen percent said there was no real change, while 4 percent were unsure.

- Along with health care, majorities of Americans also disapprove of Trump's handling of foreign policy, immigration, the budget deficit and taxes.

- Americans are likelier to support than oppose President Barack Obama's health care law, 45 percent to 38 percent.

Although already historically low compared to previous presidencies at this point in time of a new administration, it's 3 percent lower than Trump's job approval ratings in mid-February, according to McClatchy. And 51 percent disapprove of his work. Republicans approve by 79-10 percent, which are strong numbers, though they have gone down 3 points since February.

- Trump's approval rating overall is only slightly better, with 42 percent approving and 58 percent disapproving of his performance so far.

Miringoff said Trump's eroding Republican support was a "dangerous sign" and that if it continued to go down the president would have more trouble getting his priorities through the GOP-led Congress.

Numerous respondents to the Friday poll stressed that they had an unfavorable impression about Trump largely based on his personality, including his blunt language on Twitter, rather than his policies. More than three-quarters of Democrats favor an independent investigation while only one-quarter of Republicans do.

Sixty percent said that they feel embarrassed by Trump while 30 percent said they feel proud and 9 percent said that they are unsure. And most Americans - 56pc - describe the national economy as good, while 43pc describe it as poor.

But 57 percent thought his policies have most favored people who are upper-income, while 26 percent thought they have favored middle-income.

Trump, a businessman turned reality TV star, entered the White House as the least popular president in at least four decades following a bruising campaign against Democrat Hillary Clinton.
