Poll: Trump Gets Best Approval Rating In 7 Months

Trump trying to derail Russia probe, say US voters in poll

A majority of Americans say special counsel Robert MuellerRobert Swan MuellerSasse: US should applaud choice of Mueller to lead Russian Federation probe MORE's investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation is fair and should continue without interference, a Marist College poll reports.

Weekly Gallup numbers released Monday show President Donald Trump's approval rating among Republicans at a sky-high 90 percent -- his best number among those in his own party since Inauguration Day.

More than half of respondents - 51 percent - approved of Trump's handling of the economy.

Luckily, one courageous Republican did speak out forcefully on the issue saying that "the latest attacks on the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department serves no American interests ... only Putin's". He now has an approval rating of 40 percent, a number he hasn't hit since June 29, 2017. Forty-six percent say there is GOP obstruction in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's possible interference in Trump's 2016 campaign. Mueller's investigation has charged four people, including former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn, who pleaded guilty in December to lying to the FBI about conversations with Russia's ambassador.

Treasury bond yield spike spooks stock market bulls
Analysts are attributing this fall to rising global bond yields, which have unsettled investors and central banks the world over. Stocks closed lower Wednesday, but not before swinging wildly to sharply higher and lower levels, as interest rates rose.

Voters contend Trump is doing more to divide the country than to unite it by 60 percent to 35 percent. Trump has repeatedly dismissed the investigation as a witch hunt and attacked top investigators in his own Justice Department.

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

Quinnipiac University ran the poll February 2-5, surveying 1,333 voters nationwide.

The Economist/YouGov poll surveyed 1,320 registered voters between February 4 and February 6, and it has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.8 percent.
