Sixty percent of Americans do not trust President Donald Trump being in control of the country's arsenal of nuclear weapons, according to a new survey.

Key results from the wide-ranging Washington Post-ABC News poll that included more Independents (40 percent) and Democrats (31 percent) than Republicans (23 percent):

  • 38 percent trust Trump with the nuclear button, while 60 percent do not trust him.
  • 36 percent approve of the job Trump is doing as president, while 58 percent disapprove.
  • A combined 37 percent said Trump has accomplished a great deal or a good amount in office. Sixty percent said the opposite.

  • 58 percent have a positive view of the economy, while 40 percent have a negative view of it.
  • 50 percent said the Obama administration deserves credit for economic gains, while 38 percent said the Trump administration deserves credit.
  • 34 percent support the GOP's tax plan that was signed into law before Christmas, while 46 percent oppose it. Further, 60 percent said it favors the rich.
  • 87 percent support a program like Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which allows people who came to the United States illegally as children to stay under certain conditions.
  • 50 percent believe the Trump campaign colluded with Russia, while 40 percent said the opposite.
