Trump's approval rating drops by five points in new poll

That same poll - which surveyed 1,008 randomly chosen registered voters nationwide - found that 47 percent of people like how the economy is doing under Trump and 45 percent approve of how he his handling terrorism.

Less than a week ago, a poll from CNN/ORC showed Melania Trump's approval rating had overtaken her husband's.

The new survey - conducted in the days following release of the bill by House GOP leaders - underscores the political thicket that President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans face in taking on the issue. While Americans are open to the GOP proposal, there is pessimism that rolling back Obamacare will improve quality, price and coverage.

However the only parts of the GOP plan voters overwhelmingly approve of are actually Obamacare hallmarks - including guaranteeing coverage to those with pre-existing conditions and allowing people under the age of 26 to stay on their parents' health care plans. Nineteen percent of voters say they don't have an opinion of the bill.

When asked about the direction of the country, 46 percent of Americans said they believe the country is on the right track, up 4 points since a late January poll and up 17 points since immediately after Election Day, when just 29 percent of voters felt the same way.

Much of the gains track with positive economic indicators during his first few weeks in office, including a strong jobs report and stock market gains.

This is a drop of five points from the same survey taken just one month ago, with the breakdown of disapproval ratings showing Trump's decisions on immigration and healthcare and the US's relationship with Russian Federation all apparent bones of contention for voters.
