There has also been a surge in the number of those who believe the country is heading the right way under the NY billionaire, from 18 percent last July and 33 percent last December to 40 percent in the latest poll.

While 43 percent attribute the administration's struggles simply to "growing pains", 52 percent say they are "real problems".

Forty-eight percent of voters surveyed said they disapproved of the job the Republican is doing, though the polling shows a stark partisan divide. On January 6th, President-elect Trump tweeted, 'I am asking the chairs of the House and Senate committees to investigate top secret intelligence shared with NBC prior to me seeing it.' On February 13th, 14th, and 15th, news outlets reported on Mr. Trump's ties to Russian Federation.

Six-in-ten Americans said they are hopeful and optimistic about the future of the country, including an overwhelming 87 percent of Republicans (but just 37 percent of Democrats).

Among those who took part were running, cycling and endurance athletes who were contacted through trade magazines. The findings were discussed in the journal Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise.

But among Republicans, Trump gets overwhelming positives (85%), while among Democrats the negatives are 84%. His predecessor, in contrast, started off with a net positive 34 percent, while George H.W. Bush had a net positive of 45 percent.

Trump's first month in office included the bungled rollout of his travel ban targeting seven Muslim-majority countries, which was halted by federal courts. Fully 86 percent of those surveyed said they believe that a small group in D.C. has "reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost".

The 27 percent who feel very positively about the president is a high water mark for Trump, who received 3 percent on that question when it was first asked in July 1990, during the midst of his highly-publicized divorce, and again in October 1999, when he announced his first presidential exploratory committee.
