The level of public support for the US President Donald trump has reached its lowest level since his inauguration on January 20. This is evidenced by the results of a public opinion poll conducted by Reuters in conjunction with Ipsos research center.
According to the study, trump support 38 percent of Americans. 56 percent of respondents disapprove of the actions of the President, another six percent are undecided with the opinion on this question.
The survey was conducted from 14 to 18 may, it took part 1971. The margin of error was three percentage points.
The Agency connects the fall of the rating of trump with a series of political scandals which rocked the White house lately. In the beginning of this week, the media reported the transfer of American President Sergey Lavrov of classified information regarding the banned terrorist organization “Islamic state”.
Later the New York Times wrote that trump asked the ex-FBI Director James Comey to stop the investigation against his former national security adviser Michael Flynn. The White house denied this information.
May 18, former official of the U.S. justice Department and former FBI Director Robert Mueller was appointed special adviser to oversee the investigation “attempts of intervention of the government of Russia in the presidential elections of 2016”. Trump said that the investigation into Muller confirms the absence of “collusion” between his presidential campaign and a foreign power. He later called the appointment “a witch hunt”.
