64 percent of Americans disapprove of Trump's performance

64 percent of Americans disapprove of Trump's performance

Yet among whites without a college education the president's approval rating stands at just 50 percent, according to the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll. Only 5 percent of self-identified Democrats said he has the temperament for the office, while 68 percent of self-identified Republicans said he does have the proper temperament. The Real Clear Politics average of the most recent approval ratings shows Trump at 39.9 percent. Sixty-six percent of Americans said they disapprove of Trump's handling of healthcare.

In every most recent poll, bar Rasmussen's latest, the percentage of respondents disapproving of Trump is significantly higher than those who approve of the job he is doing. Among Republicans, 80 percent approve. Among Tea Party Republicans, Abbott gets approving nods from 90 percent; Patrick from 78 percent. To be sure, Texas Republicans have not embraced a rapprochement with Russian Federation to the extent that Trump appears to be pursuing. "They continue to embrace him". Democratic voters were more likely to choose the courts - 56 percent put their votes there - while 48 percent of Republicans put their faith in the president. Last week a Quinnipiac University poll found 32 percent of GOP respondents thought the president was not level-headed, while 21 percent said he did not share their values. He won. Nonetheless, these expectations continued as Trump's presidency has replicated the characteristics of his campaign.

Democrats' astonishment notwithstanding, the success of Donald Trump's usurpation of the Republican Party leadership is clearly in evidence in the attitudes of Texas voters, making any expectations that Republican elected officials can abandon him without penalty ill-advised.

While 51 percent of Democrats hold a favorable opinion of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, 43 percent of Republicans share that view.

Ashley Williams up for the fight as Wales prepare for Serbia qualifier
The visitors begun the clash the better of the two sides despite the scrappy opening in front of a passionate Serbian crowd. The Arsenal playmaker finished an injury-hit domestic season on a high with the victor in the FA Cup final against Chelsea.

Eighty percent of Republicans rated Trump's job performance positively. The incumbent is much better known: 18 percent said either that they had a neutral opinion of Cruz or no opinion at all. But 40 percent of Republicans chose a non-judgment (either "don't know" or "neither favorable or unfavorable"). Nearly half of Texas voters - 49 percent - have "somewhat" or "very" unfavorable views of the ACA, while 51 percent put the House plan in that same category. Another 30 percent registered no opinion.

The margin of sampling error is +/- 2.5 percentage points with a 95 percent level of confidence. TAP HERE to read the full methodology. That's one point higher approval than last week. Coming Friday: Texans' views on the state's top politicians and on the economy and direction of the state.
