  • Poll: Voters ambivalent about Russia probe

Perhaps if Trump and his cohorts in the Republican Congress, along with some of the more vocal Republican mouthpieces at Fox and in right-wing radio, were given the opportunity to spend even a fraction of the time spent by McCain in a POW camp, they would come away with a better understanding of what American patriotism really is all about.

President Trump's approval rating in one of the major daily tracking polls has improved significantly and is now higher than President Barack Obama's on the same date of his first term.

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. A whopping 83 percent of Republicans voters -- almost the number of party faithful who tend to approve of Trump's job performance -- say that Trump hasn't tried to derail anything.

Policeman killed, two wounded in Georgia shooting
Corley's brother Wade asked for prayers for the officers' families and said he felt lucky his brother was not more seriously hurt. The exact location of the shooting is disputed at this time, but it was in the city of Locust Grove near the Tanger Outlets.

A poll released Thursday indicates otherwise, though, with 48 percent of likely voters approving of his performance amid undiminished media opposition. Seven in 10 American voters, 70%, say the U.S. economy is excellent or good - the best mark on this question since 2001.

57 percent disapprove of Trump's foreign policy efforts; 37 percent approve.

Mueller's investigation is legitimate, 50 percent of voters say, while 42 percent say it is a "political witch hunt".

Trump says it's a 'tough time' for ex-aide accused of abuse
Holderness says Porter kicked her, chocked her, and punched her in the face on their honeymoon. In his resignation statement, Porter said "these outrageous allegations are simply false".

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

"The post State of the Union bump kicks in", assistant poll director Tim Malloy said in a statement. "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".

An Economist/YouGov poll also released Wednesday, for example, showed the president's approval rating among registered voters at 45 percent, and his disapproval rating at 53 percent - a net approval of negative eight percent. The poll has a margin of error of 3.7 percentage points.

White House Staff Secretary resigns amid abuse allegations
Porter had told people in the West Wing, including Kelly, that his exes were trying to smear him, according to the official. Ms Willoughby, a motivational speaker, told the Daily Mail she was married to Mr Porter from 2009-13.
