The poll also found that 48 percent of the country thinks America is weaker since Trump took power in January, with only 27 percent believing it to be stronger. Fifty-eight percent disapprove, the vast majority of them "strongly".

Approaching six months in office, Trump's overall approval rating has dropped to 36 per cent from 42 per cent in April.

Despite Mr Trump's claims on the campaign trail to "make America great" on the world stage, the survey found 48 per cent believed the U.S. has actually been weakened.

Trump, who is known to keep a close eye on polls, responded with predictable scorn, tweeting that the ABC-Washington Post polls were "just about the most inaccurate poll around election time".

Almost half of respondents - 48 per cent - said they "disapprove strongly" of the president's performance in office, a low level never reached by ex-presidents Bill Clinton or Barack Obama, both Democrats, and reached only once by George W Bush, during his second term.

Two-thirds of respondents said they do not trust Trump, or trust him only somewhat, in negotiating with foreign leaders.

Trump reacted to the survey by downplaying the result and questioning the accuracy of the poll.

More than half (55%) of those polled thought Trump was not making significant progress toward his goals.

In addition, 60% of respondents believe that Russian Federation was trying to influence the outcome of US presidential elections, and 67% are convinced that team trump helped her in this.

Some 60 percent of USA citizens think Russian Federation sought to interfere, though Democrats are far more likely to believe that than members of Trump's Republican Party.

That poll, released on the eve of the vote, showed Hillary Clinton leading Trump by 4 points (47 percent to 43 percent) nationally.

Half of respondents, 50 percent, said Trump's performance in office has been worse than his predecessors, while just 23 percent it was better. While 58 percent of men call them inappropriate, that jumps to 78 percent among women.

Despite having an overall low rating, statistics reveal dramatic differences in approval from different groups - for example, conservative Republicans rate Trump at a 90% approval versus liberal Democrats rating him at 5%.

An even worse result on this question has been seen before - as few as 18 percent of Americans saw President Bill Clinton as a positive role model.
