His disapproval rate, meanwhile, is on the upswing, rising five points to 58 percent, with 48 percent saying they "disapprove strongly" of the president's performance, a level, The Washington Post says, that was never reached by former presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, but was achieved in George W. Bush's second term. 48 percent say the United States' leadership on the world stage has weakened under Trump; merely 27 percent feel it is stronger.

Trump's six-month rating is the lowest of any American president at this point in the last 70 years.

And just 27 percent say US leadership on the world's stage has gotten stronger while 48 percent say it has grown weaker under Trump.

Sixty-three per cent of Americans felt a meeting between the President's son Donald Trump Jr and a Russian lawyer who claimed to have damaging information about Hillary Clinton was "inappropriate".

President Donald Trump already had low approval ratings.

However, Mr Trump took to Twitter to denigrate the poll, saying it had been "just about the most inaccurate" during the election a year ago. Among the world leaders that people don't want their president to negotiate with is Russian President Vladimir Putin, over rumors of Moscow meddling into the presidential election, the poll said.

Trump obviously got word of the results, and took to his favourite form of social media to vent his. well, they're not exactly frustrations, but. we're not exactly sure what we should be calling them. Among Democrats, eight in ten believe Russian Federation attempted to influence the election and more than six in ten think members of Trump's team attempted to aid their efforts.

Trump's had his own controversies: 40 percent of those polled said they think members of his campaign tried to help Russians interfere in the 2016 election.

Still, America is roughly evenly divided, 43-41 percent, on Trump's handling of the economy. While 17 percent say he's doing a "much better" job, 38 percent think he's doing "much worse". Each held a 59 per cent job approval rating in Post-ABC polling.

Mr Trump's 36 per cent overall approval rating is a close to a mirror image of his predecessor's score after six months. The poll shows that 50 percent prefer Obamacare, also known as the Affordable Care Act, compared to just 24 percent who prefer the GOP plan.

Americans who disapprove of Trump focused heavily on the president's personal and character traits.
