President Trump's approval rating has sunk to the lowest level since becoming president, according to a CBS News poll. That's largely in part to his handling of the Russia investigation, an issue that gets lower ratings than any other topic, including the economy or terrorism, per the poll.

Why it matters: The latest ranking reveals that the scandals involving Moscow are now dragging down Trump's approval ratings, and has elevated the issue to one that Americans care most about — a big problem for a WH trying to shift the focus back to Trump's policy agenda.
