WSJ Poll: Trump Still Strong in Counties He Won

In the ABC-Washington Post poll conducted this month, Trump's approval rating plunged to 36% from 42% in April - the lowest for any president in recent history.

The poor approval ratings are due in large part to the ongoing Russian Federation investigation as well as perceptions of Trump's ability to lead America on the world stage and the unpopularity of the proposed Republican health care bill.

The Russian controversy - Russia was accused of meddling in the 2016 USA elections in favor of Trump - is not the least of Trump's troubles and unfavorable perception among citizens.

On July 11, the second day the poll was in the field, Donald Trump Jr. released his emails with publicist Rob Goldstone regarding a meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya that Trump Jr. eventually attended with Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner during the 2016 election. Of those who believe Russia's attempt to intervene, most said Trump benefitted from that attempt.

Sekulow's comments about the Secret Service drew quick criticism, including from Frances Townsend, who advised former Republican President George W. Bush on homeland security.

Still, America is roughly evenly divided, 43-4%, on Trump's handling of the economy.

Public support for President Donald Trump is dropping, a poll showed Sunday, as he faces multiple setbacks over his stalled agenda and efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare.

Sekulow also said that there was nothing illegal in the meeting with the Russian lawyer and a Russian American lobbyist. Sixty-three percent of the poll's respondents said that Donald Trump Jr's recently-revealed campaign meeting with a Russian lawyer was inappropriate, and 60% believed that Russia worked to influence the campaign's outcome.

Political opponents see the email revelations as the most concrete evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation during the election.

In addition, 38 percent of those surveyed said Trump has not made significant progress toward his goals, with 55 percent thinking otherwise.

A bio on the website of Cobb's former firm, Hogan Lovells, says that "Clients managing crises, allegations of corruption, and other critical matters turn to Ty to guide them".
