CBS's new poll showed America just about split over Trump and some of his first key actions. As usual, the divide falls mostly along party lines.

Refugee ban: More people disapprove than approve of Trump's ban — 51% to 45%. And 57% think the temporary ban is against the nation's founding principles. However, most Republicans think it makes America safer.

SCOTUS Nominee: While 56% can't decide yet, more Americans think the Senate should confirm Gorsuch, than think they should vote against him.

Trump himself: 40% of Americans approve of Trump's work so far — the lowest approval rating of any president at this point in the presidency.
