A new ABC/Washington Post poll finds 65% of Americans think Trump has either accomplished "not very much" or "little or nothing," with 43% selecting "little or nothing." Meanwhile 35% believe he has accomplished either "a good amount" (23%) or "a great deal" (12%). Majorities say he is not a strong leader and has made American leadership weaker.

  • Tump's overall job approval is 37%. On issues, he scores best on the economy (44% approve) and worst on health care and race relations (70% disapprove).
  • The big picture: No president in the poll's 70 year history had a negative approval/disapproval rating at this point in his presidency. Trump's is -22%.
