Seven out of 10 Americans believe Donald Trump’s behavior in office has been ‘unpresidential,’ and his Twitter binges aren’t swinging things in his favor.
That stunning number is coupled with an astonishingly low 36 per cent overall approval rating, the worst recorded in 70 years.
And more than half of Americans – 57 per cent – say the more they hear about Trump, the less they like him.
Trump spun his approval number as ‘almost 40%,’ saying it’s ‘not bad at this time.’
He played to his base with that tweet, a strategy that could be his only political refuge at a time when his Obamacare repeal effort has stalled and his White House is beset with embarrassing leaks playing to Democrats’ narratives about allegations of Russian election collusion.
