President Donald Trump has attempted to "derail or obstruct" the Russian Federation investigation, said 53 percent of American voters in a Quinnipiac University National Poll released Wednesday. Just 44% of voters approved of Obama, while 56% disapproved. He now has an approval rating of 40 percent, a number he hasn't hit since June 29, 2017.

75 percent of American voters say they are in good or excellent shape financially.

A broad 77 percent of GOP voters say that the investigation into Trump associates and Russian meddling is a "witch hunt", according to Tuesday's new survey from Quinnipiac.

Voters are now virtually evenly split on Trump's handling of taxes: 45% approve and 47% disapprove.

You've been hearing the steady drumbeat from establishment media: President Trump lost the popular vote and he's even more unpopular now. The tax plan itself has experienced a 13-point jump in approval since it passed, from 26% to 39%.

A plurality of Republican voters, 46 percent, say that Mueller has not been fair in his investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

85 percent of Republicans say he is not a racist, while 84 percent of Democrats say he is.

Tim Malloy, assistant director for the poll, said in a news release that the recent State of the Union speech may have helped Trump's standing with voters. "Americans are feeling good about their personal finances, but we'll have to see whether the Wall Street plunge takes a toll on the guy in charge".

New developments are surfacing in special counsel Robert Mueller's probe almost every day, but new poll numbers are showing Republican voters aren't all that concerned.

The Quinnipiac poll surveyed 1,333 self-identified registered voters nationwide and had a margin of error at plus or minus 3.3 percentage points.
