Trump trying to derail Russian Federation probe, say USA voters in poll

Bolstered by the strong economy and quickly shifting numbers on tax reform, President Donald Trump's approval rating hit 40% in, his best score in this survey in seven months.

40 percent of American voters approve of the job Trump is doing - the highest since a poll taken June 29, 2017.

47 percent disapprove of the way he has handled taxes; 45 percent approve.

Additionally, 48 percent of Americans polled credit Trump with the state of the economy, while 41 percent say Obama deserves more credit.




Former FBI Director James Comey said Trump asked him to pledge his loyalty, Trump recently asked Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein if he was "on my team", and Trump also asked former deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe who he voted for in the 2016 presidential campaign. Fifty-five percent of Republicans still have a positive view of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, according to the poll, despite Trump's feud with the agency.

Voters are divided on whether Trump is a racist: 49 percent say he is; 46 percent say he is not.

Voters contend Trump is doing more to divide the country than to unite it by 60 percent to 35 percent. That stands in contrast to the majority of Americans, 56 percent, who say that Mueller has been fair during his probe so far. Trump has repeatedly dismissed the investigation as a witch hunt and attacked top investigators in his own Justice Department.

The Economist/YouGov poll surveyed 1,320 registered voters between February 4 and February 6, and it has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.8 percent. Still, 62% think the plan mostly helps the wealthy, a number almost unchanged since November.Favorable views of the Republican Party are up from 24% before tax reform passed to 32% now, though a majority of voters, 51%, still view the governing party unfavorably.This was conducted February 2-5, 2018, among 1,333 registered voters.
