President Trump's approval rating hits 50 percent, poll shows

Rasmussen Reports, a public-opinion polling organization, reported on Friday Trump's approval rating amongst likely USA voters hit the 50 percent mark, the first time Rasmussen has recorded a Trump approval rating at 50 percent or higher since April 24, when Rasmussen found 51 percent of likely voters approved of Trump's performance. The same poll found that only 50 percent of whites without a college degree approve of the job the president is doing.

While 51 percent of Democrats hold a favorable opinion of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, 43 percent of Republicans share that view.

According to a new Rasmussen Reports poll, 55 percent of Americans say the shooting incident was a result of political anger in the country.

And, while Republicans are more dissatisfied than ever since Trump took office, Democrats are even more concerned. Fifty-one percent (51%) disapprove. Forty-seven percent of independents approve of Trump's performance while 41 percent disapprove.

Portugal: more than 20 dead in forest fires
The fire broke out Saturday just before 3:00 pm (1400 GMT) in the municipality of Pedrogao Grande in the region of Leiria. Portugal has lots of experience but seems short on equipment and finances. "I commend the bravery of the firefighters".

Texas voters' views of Trump roughly track the findings of the February UT/TT Poll.

The only government official who scored higher than Trump in Zogby's poll was Trump's Secretary of Defense James Mattis, who scored an approval rating of 43 percent. "But Texas Republicans are holding steady". This no doubt informs many Democrats' astonishment that Trump supporters don't see him as they do.

Only 9 percent of Republican voters said Russian Federation influenced the election; 81 percent said it didn't. He said Trump's statement on Twitter Friday was specifically in response to a story in The Washington Post about the expanding probe into Russia's election meddling. But Cruz is also the leader in negative reviews, getting those from 44 percent of voters. The speaker, as is ordinarily the case, remains the least well-known of the three, with 46 percent of voters either giving him neutral or no ratings. The June 2017 University of Texas/Texas Tribune Poll reveals direct signs of the Texas Republican voters' embrace of Trump as well as signs of his indirect influence on the attitudes of Republican voters.
