President Donald Trump’s poll numbers are continuing to deteriorate as his agenda gets stalled at home and allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 elections continue to grow, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

The poll found that:

  • Trump’s overall approval rating has dropped to 36 percent from 42 percent in April.
  • His disapproval rating has risen five points to 58 percent.
  • Overall, 48 percent say they “disapprove strongly” of Trump’s performance in office.

That last number surpasses the lows of former presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. It’s a number reached only in the second term of George W. Bush in Post-ABC polling, the Post reported.

The Post also reported that 48 percent of Americans see the country’s leadership in the world as weaker since Trump was inaugurated, compared with 27 percent who say it is stronger. Majorities also say they do not trust him in negotiations with foreign leaders and in particular Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The Post-ABC poll found that 60 percent of Americans think Russia tried to influence the election outcome, up slightly from 56 percent in April. Also, 44 percent suspect Russian interference in the election and think Trump benefited from their efforts.

Perhaps even more alarming for the Trump administration: roughly 4 in 10 believe members of Trump’s campaign intentionally aided Russian efforts to influence the election, though suspicions have changed little since the spring.
