New polling indicates that President Donald Trump's favorability has dipped to a new low following a series of controversies.

The poll, conducted between May 14 and 18, pegged the number of Americans who disapprove of the president's job at 56 percent. There is a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points. Do you think they need to tone it down?

Fifty-eight percent of voters said it was inappropriate for Trump to share the information, while just 22% said it was appropriate.

While it is the polls lowest recorded approval since Trump took office on January 20, other polls have recorded lower numbers in the past.

The survey queried national adults on their knowledge and opinions of two recent news stories about the president, finding that a majority were aware of them. The information had been provided by a key US ally and could have potentially compromised an asset within the Islamic State group (ISIS), The Washington Post reports.

GE Appliances to get Google voice control option
Instant apps works on any Android device that runs Android version 6.0 (Marshmallow) or higher, and is available in 40 countries. At this stage the app only operates in English, however, Google has announced that new languages will be available soon.


The poll was conducted after a Washington Post report claimed Trump revealed highly classified information to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in a White House meeting last week. A relatively small 50.9 percent of respondents reported they approved of Trump's job performance at the time the poll was taken.

Almost six in 10 voters (58%) said they felt Trump's decision to share sensitive information about ISIS with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during an Oval Office meeting last week was "inappropriate", the poll found, while just 22% said they felt the disclosure was appropriate. The president had allegedly requested that Comey drop the probe during a private meeting, The New York Times reports.

58% disapproved of Trump's move to share classified information with the Russian officials last week while 41% percent said they were not confident in the President's ability to handle classified information.

That's a drastic change from the 43.6 percent approval rating the divisive politician received in the May 1st poll.
