A new ABC News-Washington Post poll had some dire news for President Donald Trump.


As it stands, his approval ratings today are holding at just 36%. More ominous still, 48% of Americans now “strongly disapprove” of the president’s job performance. Just to put that in perspective — neither president’s Obama or Clinton in their combined 16 years in office ever reached such a point among the U.S. electorate. George W. Bush hit the milestone only deep into his second term after years of morass in Iraq and Afghanistan.


A full 48% of Americans said U.S. leadership in the world had gotten “weaker” while only 27% said stronger. A majority, 52% also said they were of the opinion that Donald Trump was trying to impede the Russian investigation. Another 50% also said they liked the current healthcare law, Obamacare. That’s a milestone for legislation once so unpopular, it handed the GOP control of congress in 2010.

There were a few bright spots, however, mostly in voter confidence of the other party to be any better. When asked about Democrats, 52% of voters also said the party didn’t stand for anything except opposing Trump.
