The poll conducted by the Associated Press was done before the shooting incident at a baseball field on Wednesday, June 14, which left a congressman injured.

Trump's base voters, his key demographics, appear to be growing tired of the president, as well. Trump was returning from a trip to Milwaukee. This pattern of attitudes suggests a secure position among Texas voters and also means that, for better or for worse, Trump and Texas Republicans fates, for the present, are tightly intertwined. An average of 34.8 percent of Americans think the country is moving in the right direction - up 0.5 percent, while 56.8 percent think the country is going in the wrong direction - down a full percentile from last week. Overall, 64 percent disapprove and 35 percent approve of how Trump is handling the presidency.

Burling, Kiwis beat Oracle third time in America's Cup
Team USA bounced back from an 8-1 deficit in 2013 against the Kiwis to win 9-8 in the sport's most captivating episode yet. Cycling nerd John MacLeary wants to know whether the cyclors on board the New Zealand boat wear trainers or cycling shoes.

So far, this poll is an outlier poll, as it's the only recent polls to show the president getting more than 45 percent approval, and one of the only polls to show the president above 40 percent approval.

While the president entered the White House with relative unpopularity, the AP noted, his dwindling approval numbers and perceived disrespect for the country's institutions show mounting challenges for Trump as he seeks to cast himself as a unifying figure.

Bodies found in search of US destroyer damaged in collision
Seven sailors were listed as missing following the collision, but it is unclear if all had been found by navy divers. Seventh Fleet confirmed that two berthing spaces, an auxiliary machine room and the ship's radio room all flooded.

Ron Denmon, a 55-year-old independent voter from Houston, agreed that Trump has little regard for the country's democratic institutions and traditions, including the White House taking steps to avoid politicizing the Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. This seems likely a result of the settling of the post-election enthusiasm that buoyed Republican perceptions in the immediate wake of Trump's election and inauguration. Mueller was appointed after Trump dismissed Comey, who had been leading the inquiry.

The US president has denied trying to influence the investigation, but acknowledged in an interview that Russian Federation was on his mind when he dismissed Comey. A smaller amount - 28 percent - said they believed the shooting was a random act of violence committed by an unstable person, while 17 percent said they weren't sure. This no doubt informs many Democrats' astonishment that Trump supporters don't see him as they do. "What he's trying to do is good". Clinton won the popular vote by 1 percentage point, even though Trump beat her on electoral votes.

Trump now under investigation for obstruction of justice
Vice President Mike Pence has also hired a private lawyer to represent his interests in the expanding probe. An official confirmed to Fox News that Trump was referring to Rosenstein in the statement.

Thirty-one percent of those polled strongly approve of his performance, while 42 percent strongly disapprove. Among Democrats, 90 percent disapprove.
