Offering no evidence, Trump says Russian Federation will back Democrats in election

In another worrying trend for Mr Trump, the poll revealed rising support for Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the U.S. 2016 election.

As bipartisan fury over Trump's summit with Vladimir Putin last week reverberates in Washington, Pompeo will hear from senators demanding to know what happened during the president's one-on-one meeting with the Russian president, what Trump meant when he called the European Union a "foe" and whether the USA is being duped again by North Korea. A sizable 18 percent say they have no opinion. Just 6 percent of Democrats said they felt the same way.

The president wavers often on whether or not Russian Federation is trying to interfere with USA politics. "The task to restore a constructive dialogue remains very urgent and should I say that new sanctions are hardly the best background for this", Slutsky said.

The US intelligence community has concluded that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 presidential election and that the effort was specifically aimed at helping Trump win. Among Republicans who were polled, 51 percent said they think so. Will Hurd's (R-TX) op-ed in the New York Times Thursday asserting that Trump had "actively participated in a Russian disinformation campaign that legitimized Russian denial [of election interference] and weakened the credibility of the United States to both our friends and foes overseas". He states often that Russian meddling in USA elections is fake news. Trump's comments in the days since - he called Montenegro "very aggressive" - raised doubts about the USA commitment to defend alliance partners and maintain penalties on Russian Federation for its annexation of Crimea. Fifty-seven percent of respondents said they anticipate more meddling in November. In contrast, most Republicans - 58 percent - appear hopeful that Russian Federation will not interfere in US elections this fall.


Putin's top foreign policy aide Yury Ushakov said that several days after the Helsinki meeting the Kremlin received a USA proposal to organise a new summit in Washington "at the end of the year".

"The only outcome of this so far is that people are selling Russian Federation", said one state banker. The Hill and the HarrisX polling company run the American Barometer poll. In what world is Russian Federation not behind everything that Donald Trump is doing?

Eight days after the Helsinki summit, the backlash on US President Donald Trump is now felt on his approval numbers and leadership approach, according to a latest poll by Quinnipiac University. "Putin and Trump may also meet at other global forums they will participate in, such possibilities will surely be discussed", he said, adding that the parties had not yet started preparations for a new summit. "I let him know we can't have this", said Mr Trump.

The poll was conducted over a four-day period beginning July 15, It polled 900 registered voters and has a plus-minus 3.27 percentage point margin of error.
