It's not just Gallup, folks. PPP released polling Thursday also placing Donald Trump at an all-time low of 40 percent approval, 53 percent disapproval.
As a bonus, the health care debacle has turned Trump's Congressional bosom buddy Paul Ryan into the most reviled politician in the land.
This issue has made Paul Ryan into the most unpopular politician in the country. At the start of the Trump administration he had a 33% approval rating, with 43% of voters disapproving of him. Now his approval has plunged to 21%, with his disapproval spiking all the way up to 61%. Ryan's particularly seen his image crater with Trump voters- what was a 53/23 approval rating with them in mid-January is now negative at 35/41.
The cherry on top of that sundae is that the Affordable Care Act is more popular than ever, with a 52-37 percent approval rating.
A few other highlights from the poll regarding Russia:
•62 percent of Americans want to see an independent investigation of the Trump/Russia connections;
•A plurality of voters, 44 percent, believe Trump's campaign team was in cahoots with Russia during the election to 42 percent who think it wasn’t, with 14 percent undecided on the matter;
•53 percent think Trump should resign if his team did work with Russia;
•39% of voters consider the Russia story to be 'fake news,' to 48% who don’t
Of course, 39 percent of Americans (Trump supporters) remain hermetically sealed from the flurry of revelations that, at the very least, suggest something fishy is going on with our government. That said, by and large, Americans are following the Trump/Russia story and taking it very seriously.
