Siena poll: Trump's job ratings fall, Congressional Democrats and GOP worse

Posted May 26, 2017

63 percent of registered GOP members surveyed believe Trump is doing an excellent or good job in office.

Further, even in the Rasmussen poll - which by far is more favorable to Trump than any other - a majority of Americans disapprove of his job performance.

A majority of voters believe that President Donald Trump is abusing the powers of his office, according to a poll released Wednesday by Quinnipiac University. Three quarters (75%) of Democrats said the media was being fair, while three quarters of Republicans (76%) said they weren't.

President Donald Trump has repeatedly accused media organizations which have published stories critical of him of disseminating fake news.

The President embarked on his globetrotting under a cloud of controversial reports regarding the probe into his campaign's potential Russian Federation ties and the fallout from his firing FBI Director James Comey, news of which rocked Washington earlier this month.

Those who disapprove of Trump's performance dropped from 53 percent to 50 percent. In the RealClearPolitics average of polls on May 3, his approval rating was at 43.6 percent, and his disapproval rating was at 51.3 percent - a net disapproval of under eight percent.

Forty-seven percent of those voters "strongly approve" of Trump.

Support among Democratic voters - 13 percent at Trump's January inauguration - was 7 percent in the latest survey.

In broad terms, Trump's voters are sticking by the president's side, even coalescing around the Republican in the last week, while Democrats are much more inclined to call for his head.

The poll finds Trump's continued slide is at least partly the result of strong concern over whether Russian Federation interfered with the November elections. The president asserted that he had lost confidence in Comey's ability to lead the FBI, The New York Times reports.
