Trump is getting 72 percent approval from Republicans and just nine percent approval from Democrats.
Real Clear Politics calculated an average approval rating of 40 per cent, based on figures from several polls including Rasmussen, Gallup, CNBC and Quinnipiac. Seventy-two percent approve of the job Mr. Trump is doing, a decline of eleven points since April. Among Democrats, it was 88 percent against and 10 percent favoring interference.
Allies of President Trump have recently been attacking special counsel Robert Mueller in what seems to be preparation for Trump to fire him.
The survey of 1,117 adults nationwide, conducted, June 15-18, has a margin of error of 4 percentage points. Only 44 percent of Americans believe the Russians interfered to help Mr. Trump, while 31 percent do not believe Russia interfered in the election at all. But on the other side of the aisle, only 32 percent see the investigations as a distraction, while 27 percent see it was a serious issue, and 39 percent view it as a critical issue of national security. About one-third said Trump's approach on the process has left them thinking less of the president.

No 'direct' proof Russian Federation meddled in USA elections: Putin
Mr Putin suggested that skilled hackers anywhere, including the USA , could shift the blame for hacking onto Russian Federation . He accused the United States media of sensationalizing information and using it as a "weapon of war" against Trump.
Most Americans - 56 percent - believe Mueller's investigation will be impartial, compared with 30 percent saying it will be partial.
Remember, rank-and-file GOP lawmakers on Capitol Hill have a very strong incentive to toe the party line and follow Trump's lead: the most rabid contingents of the Republican base support the president, and GOP officials who break ranks risk a backlash - or a primary challenge. Forty-three percent approved of him in early April, a number that dropped to 41 percent by late April and now has hit the new low of 36 percent in late June. Of those who identify as Republican, 24 percent believe Comey and 64 percent believe the president more. More than half of those surveyed by CBS, 57 per cent, are on team Comey.
In the poll released Tuesday, a third of Americans say Trump's approach to the Russian Federation investigation has worsened their opinion of him. Twenty-seven percent thought it was a serious issue but not as serious as other issues. Only 23 percent of Americans polled by CBS think they have a good understanding of what the Republican healthcare plan will do.
