Approval of US leadership under Trump tumbles globally in poll

Approval of US leadership under Trump tumbles globally in poll

And by a margin of 76 percent to 16 percent they believe that an immigrant's country of origin shouldn't make a difference when it comes to coming to America. And the AP-NORC poll conducted in December found that two-thirds of Americans thought the country has become even more divided as a result of Trump's presidency. Fifty-seven percent of those surveyed disapprove of his performance - including 51 percent who say they strongly disapprove.

Independents in particular are happy with the President's performance on the economy.

By reducing taxes and repealing regulations, Trump has allowed businesses to flourish, said Garr, 57, managing partner of a human resources company. Only 8 percent of Democrats gave Trump high marks. Feelings on this are largely driven by partisanship. When they share news, 68 percent say they are doing it with people who hold the same views as them. The partisan splits have proved as durable as they are wide.

The President ends his first year in office with an approval rating higher than he has seen in months.

One year since Donald Trump was inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States he has one of the lowest year-end approval ratings in history, yet his supporters still wouldn't have it any other way, according to a new poll. He enjoyed no presidential honeymoon, despite the fact that Republicans made a "clean sweep" of the November 2016 federal elections, securing majorities in both houses of Congress, as well as taking the White House. Whites without a college degree - whose votes helped Mr. Trump win the presidency - are divided today. And Trump, who campaigned on the promise of "America First", abandoned the Trans Pacific Partnership and withdrew from the Paris climate accord, may not care too much about what citizens of other countries think of US leadership during his presidency. During the unrests in some of the US states, Trump addressed the protesters to racism with the worst possible words, which led to the reaction of many politicians.

They believe America's credibility is damaged by threats to use force to "totally destroy" North Korea and our effectiveness is weakened by Trump's attacks on the Central Intelligence Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and other national security institutions.

When it comes to the economy and jobs, 42 percent of voters gave him an A or B. That shouldn't be surprising. Most Republicans approve of his handling of these issues, while most Democrats don't.

USA leadership under Trump also made gains in war-torn Iraq, where views improved by 9 points amid a string of victories against the Islamic State that have vastly reduced its military grasp on the region.

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will see corporate tax rates falling from 35 per cent to 21 per cent. A plurality thinks there has been too much emphasis on repealing Obamacare.

Don't you just love a reminder that presidents are just like us?

The poll was conducted January 4-5 and sampled 1,988 registered voters.

A new Knight-Gallup poll of 19,000 adults found that trust in the media is at a new low, with Americans ranking their faith at 37 out of 100. For the cell sample, interviews were conducted with the person who answered the phone.

Trump said he had not expected US companies to step up and show their support by paying bonuses. The rest of the poll will be released later Friday.
