Given the mutually reinforcing effects of partisan polarization in the electorate and the intensity of both positive and negative feelings toward Trump, it is no surprise that the poll reveals that Democratic attitudes are the opposite, with the qualification that they are slightly more negative than the Republicans are positive. The remaining 16 percent chose "don't know enough to say". Sixty-six percent of white voters without college degrees cast their ballot for Trump, according to CNN's exit polls. Among the Republicans who have an unfavorable view of Russian Federation, 20 percent have a very unfavorable view, compared to 53 percent of Democrats whose views are very unfavorable - a remarkable reversal of the attitudes toward Russian Federation expressed in American politics in the post-World War II era.

Americans are more divided over Trump's handling of the threat of terrorism, with 47 per cent saying they approve and 52 per cent that they disapprove. That contention aligns with the views of Republican voters in Texas. Cornyn got negative marks from 41 percent.

The senior senator from Texas won't be on the ballot in 2018. U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise, R-LA., was the only congressman to be hit and is in criticial condition. Beto O'Rourke, D-El Paso, plans to challenge him. Trump's support among Democrats and independents has always been pretty dismal-but now things are growing worse among his own party and the demographic groups that largely thrust him into the White House. Nearly half of Texas voters - 49 percent - have "somewhat" or "very" unfavorable views of the ACA, while 51 percent put the House plan in that same category. Trump said in another tweet. "Most people don't have any idea who he is; 70 percent don't have any opinion about him".

A large portion of the respondents in a poll released two days ago on June 14, including 66% of Republican voters, thought that James Comey should be punished for leaking memos to the New York Times. A higher share, 80 percent, said he was competent. Another 30 percent registered no opinion. Some voters were emphatic: 2 percent "strongly" approve of Congress' work, while 43 percent disapprove "strongly". See the Texas Lyceum poll results from April for more. "What's striking is that Republicans in Texas are warming to Trump even though they have reservations about his temperament and character".
