President Donald Trump's approval rating has dropped 5 points since the release last Thursday of special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 election, a new poll showed.
The Politico/Morning Consult survey showed Trump's 39 percent approval rating matches his presidency's low-water mark in the wake of Charlottesville, Virginia, violence in August 2017.
There is little support, however, for impeachment, the poll showed.
Here are the highlights:
- 39% of voters approve of the job Trump is doing as president, down from 44% last week.
- 57% disapprove of the job Trump is doing.
- 34% believe Congress should begin impeachment proceedings, down from 39% in January; 48% say Congress should not begin impeachment proceedings.
- 43% say Congress should continue to investigate, while 41% say it should not.
- 46% think the investigation into Russia's influence on the 2016 presidential election was handled fairly, 29% think it was handled unfairly. Further, 48% of Democratic voters, 46% of Republicans, and 43% of independents say they think the investigation was handled fairly.
- 30% approve of the way Attorney General William Barr has handled the case.
The poll's margin of error is plus or minus 2 percentage points.
