Poll: Donald Trump Hits Record Low In Job Approval

Donald Trump likes to tout his ability to break records, but this is a record no one would want to own.

According to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll, Trump has the lowest approval rating of any president in the past 70 years.

The survey shows only 36% of Americans approve of his job performance. And that's down 6 points from his 100-day mark. Of those polled, 58% disapprove of how Trump is handling the presidency.

The last time a president was even close to this level was in 1975 just after President Ford had pardoned Richard Nixon.

Other polling results:

• 63% say it was inappropriate for Donald Trump Jr. to take a meeting with a "Russian government attorney" during the presidential campaign

• Only 38% feel Trump is making progress on his campaign promises

• Only 24% of those polled prefer the new Trumpcare legislation versus 50% who like the current law

• 63% feel it's more important for the government to provide healthcare coverage for low-income Americans; 27% say cutting taxes is more important

Trump doesn't seem fazed by his record low numbers at all. This morning he tweeted that the results are "not bad at this time."
