    Donald Trump's unfavorability rating has reached 70 percent, a poll showed.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Seven in 10 Americans have an unfavorable view of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, up 10 percent from the previous survey in mid-May, according to a poll by Langer Research Associates for ABC News and the Washington Post that was released on Wednesday.

    "Trump’s result reverses a boost he received after securing the Republican presidential nomination, from 37-60 percent favorable-unfavorable in mid-May to 29-70 percent now, after a week in which he took sharp criticism for suggesting that he was being treated unfairly by a federal judge because of the judge’s Mexican heritage," a press release explaining the poll revealed.

    Trump has come under fire, even from supporters within the Republican Party, for attacking a judge in a lawsuit against the billionaire candidate by claiming the judge lacks objectivity because he is the son of Mexican immigrants.

    Rival Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, meanwhile, received no boost from having secured her party’s nomination, with a 43-55 percent favorable-unfavorable rating in mid-June that was nearly identical to the 44-53 percent rating a month earlier.
