How Do Texas Voters Feel About Trump?

Michael Cohen attorney for The Trump Organization arrives at Trump Tower in New York City

Donald Trump celebrated his approval rating finally climbing to 50 percent Friday, but the full picture is a lot less rosy for the increasingly besieged president.

Rather than focus on the AP poll, however, Trump shared a recent Rasmussen poll, which put his approval rating at 50 percent-far higher than the AP poll's finding or the average of most recent polls.

This is reportedly the first time that President Trump's overall approval rating reached the 50% mark since April this year.

Given the mutually reinforcing effects of partisan polarization in the electorate and the intensity of both positive and negative feelings toward Trump, it is no surprise that the poll reveals that Democratic attitudes are the opposite, with the qualification that they are slightly more negative than the Republicans are positive.

Russian Federation 2 New Zealand 0: Hosts make confident start to Confederations Cup
Michael Boxall , left, and Tommy Smith are too late to prevent Russian Federation taking a lead in the first half. Without a win in 10 Confederations Cup matches, New Zealand next play Mexico on Wednesday in Sochi.

While that sentiment appeared most common among Democrats and independents - 9 in 10 and 6 in 10, respectively - a third of Republican voters said Trump had little or no respect for democratic institutions in America.

Special counsel Robert Mueller has also been appointed to oversee the Russian Federation investigation. For example, as long as Trump maintains 80 percent job approval among Texas Republicans, it is inconceivable that Republicans in the Texas congressional delegation will entertain any idea of impeachment proceedings.

By comparison, just 28% said the shooting of Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and the killing of six others in Arizona in January 2011 was the result of political anger. Comey has said Trump was trying to influence his handling of the Russian Federation investigation. Still, the Supreme Court, which many conservatives cited as their reason for supporting Trump during the presidential campaign, was the top vote-getter with 38 percent. The president announced earlier this month that he would from the 195-nation Paris climate deal and has made a concerted push to undo Obama-era environmental regulations.

Seventy-five percent of Americans disapprove of the job Congress is doing, the poll shows.

Trump friend: Mueller 'illegitimate as special counsel'
Ryan echoed that sentiment, calling the reports about the president possibly moving to fire Mueller "a rumor". Gingrich tweeted , "Republicans are delusional if they think the special counsel is going to be fair".

Sixty-five percent of Americans say they think the country is on the wrong track, the poll shows, and just 34 percent think it's headed in the right direction.

The AP-NORC poll of 1,068 adults was conducted June 8-11 using a sample drawn from NORC's probability-based AmeriSpeak panel, which is created to be representative of the US population. The survey's margin of error is 4.1 percentage points.

The poll surveyed 1,068 Americans from June 8 to 11, and respondents were interviewed either by phone or online.

Iran calls U.S. fight against ISIS "a lie"
President Donald Trump is fond of using tweeter to share his opinions but he is yet to reply to Khamenei's tweets. Iran repeated accusations that Saudi Arabia funds Islamist militants, including Islamic State.
