If Trump Coordinates With Russia 53% Say He Should Resign
Americans want answers. That is the verdict of a new PPP poll that shows 44% believe Trump coordinated with Russia-42% believe he didn’t. But on the question of what happens if the investigation determines he did coordinate-53% believe he should resign and only 39% believe he shouldn’t.

But 63% of Americans believe it’s necessary for the FBI to investigate if there was coordination.

The polls don’t have much good news for Trump these days. He’s now down to 35% approval in Gallup:

This is no doubt in large part due to the Tryancare debacle.
But I thought Trump suspended the laws of physics in politics. Indeed, his popularity is already approaching Watergate levels. Nixon left at 26%, George W. Bush at 29%. But this was after Katrina and the financial crisis. Nixon didn’t get to those levels until year five.
Trump has been here for just 2 months and 10 days.
“President Donald Trump only needed 69 days to accomplish something Jimmy Carter, Richard Nixon, and George W. Bush took years to achieve: reach an approval rating of 35 percent.”
“In a brand new Gallup poll released Wednesday, Trump’s approval rating has plummeted to 35 percent. For context, the lowest approval rating of President Obama’s eight-year tenure in the White House was 38 percent.”
“If Trump’s approvals plunge any lower, he will become one of just six presidents to do so, as Johnson and Reagan bottomed out at 35%.”
“Trump’s popularity took a massive hit last week as he began to publicly support the wildly unpopular healthcare bill that many are calling “RyanCare.”
“According to the Gallup poll, House Speaker Paul Ryan’s American Health Care Act (AHCA) was polling at around 17 percent before he was forced to pull the bill.”
“Trump’s approvals were also affected when more allegations came to light over alleged campaign ties to Russia, including an announcement from FBI Director James Comey that there was a pending investigation into whether or not any of his associates colluded with Russian agents to influence the 2016 presidential election.”

Slouching towards Watergate.
P.S. As we saw in my poll out last week, the long awaited poll results are in, and right now I’m just 11 points down vs. Peter King (GOP-NY-District 2). And the voters don’t even know who I am yet.
There is nothing more important in getting answers to Trump-Russia collusion than a Democratic House in 2019. Please donate to help me in my part of the effort to fight for a Dem House.
Thank you. We must have a Dem House. And so, we will
