Meanwhile Mr Trump's disapproval rating reached a zenith of 58 per cent, with 48 per cent saying they "disapprove strongly" of his performance as president.

The 50 percent approval rating comes from adults in "Trump Counties", "consisting of Republicans, Democrats and independents" who approve of the president's job performance, NBC reported.

Sixty percent also say they believe Russian Federation meddled in the election, while more than two-thirds (67 percent) say they believe Trump aides helped Russian Federation in this effort.

President Donald Trump's six-month approval rating is the lowest of any president in the past 70 years.

Besides, it also showed that 48 percent of the respondents see the U.S. leadership in the world as weaker since Trump's inauguration, with only 27 percent believing it to be stronger.

These results also came on the heels of revelations that Donald Trump Jr. met with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya last June to obtain damaging information on Hillary Clinton that was offered "as part of Russia and its government's support of Mr. Trump", according to emails Trump Jr. posted online.

Though responses split along partisan lines, the poll found that 60% of Americans believe Russian Federation interfered in the presidential election, and 44% thought Trump benefitted from it, while almost 40% said they thought the Trump campaign might have colluded in it.

The president's job approval rating looks quite different in the counties that propelled him to victory previous year, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

Obama's average "strong" approval was 28 percent during his presidency, not much different than Trump today.

Trump's handling of the economy also isn't a disaster: Forty-three percent approve of it compared to 41 percent who disapprove and 16 percent who are unsure. That marks a six-point decline from Trump's approval rating after his first 100 days in office.

Donald Trump may have just attempted his most audacious use of alternative facts to date. A 55 per cent majority say Trump is not making significant progress toward his goals.

A president's job approval rating is the essential barometer of his popularity, but it can also be unsatisfying in its lack of specificity. At that time, 71% of Americans said they agreed with Bush on issues.

The poll was conducted from a sample of 1,001 adults in English and Spanish via landline and cell phone from July 10-13, 2017, with a margin error of plus or minus 3.5 points.
