President Trump’s approval rating has dipped to a record low, according to a new poll.
The new ABC-Washington Post poll found 60 percent of Americans disapproving of Trump’s performance, the highest percentage since he took office in January 2017.
A majority of Americans also support the special counsel’s Russia investigation and say the president should not fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
The poll shows that a majority of the public has turned against Trump and is on guard against his efforts to influence the Justice Department and special counsel Robert Mueller’s wide-ranging probe.
According to the poll – conducted Aug. 26 to 29 — 49 percent of Americans say Congress should begin impeachment proceedings that could lead to Trump’s removal from office amid the 78 percent of Republicans who approve of his performance.
The poll also shows that more men support Trump than women. While 45 percent of Whites back him, just 19 percent of non-Whites approve of his performance.
