    Approval ratings for President Donald Trump fell to a new low for the third time in less than three weeks, according to the daily Morning Consult/Politico survey released on Friday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Approval for the president fell 44 percent in the May 4 survey and 42 percent on May 4, the latest poll revealed.

    "Fifty-three percent disapprove of Trump… and 41 percent approve," a press release explaining the latest poll stated.

    The release credited Trump’s decline in popularity to ongoing federal probes of Russia’s purported role in the 2016 presidential election — allegations that have been repeatedly denied by Moscow.

    Trump claims that a US obsession with Russia is driven Democrats who are unwilling to admit that they fumbled an election that was theirs to win and using Russia as a scapegoat.
