The whirlpool of Donald Trump’s presidency leaves people in overload. His daily lies are so bad that The Washington Post has had to create a 5 Pinocchio rating, meaning falsehoods repeated at least 20 times. It is specific to only one person — POTUS. The intrigue and backbiting in the White House leaves people unsettled. Plus, the Trump-Moscow connection is so vast that it is mind-boggling. People are not happy in this latest poll.

According to a new CNN poll, Americans have not been happy with the way that Trump dealt with Russia’s attack on the 2016 presidential election and its continuing assault. Only 29 percent of adults feel that the commander-in-chief handled the situation well. That number fell from 33 percent in October.

CNN conducted the poll after the special counsel’s people reported how well Michael Flynn worked with Mueller’s prosecutors. Flynn was the president’s short-lived national security adviser.

That week, Mueller cancelled Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s plea deal. The news came out that Manafort played the special counsel by working as a Trump mole. In addition, Mueller’s court filings indicated that the man sitting in the Oval Office directed his former personal attorney and self-described fixer to violate campaign finance law.

Mueller’s report into Cohen’s case read, according to Wired:

‘The defendant also provided information about attempts by other Russian nationals to reach the campaign. For example, in or around November 2015, Cohen received the contact information for, and spoke with, a Russian national who claimed to be a ‘trusted person’ in the Russian Federation who could offer the campaign “political synergy” and “synergy on a government level.” The defendant recalled that this person repeatedly proposed a meeting between Individual 1 (aka Donald Trump) and the President of Russia. The person told Cohen that such a meeting could have a “phenomenal’ impact ‘not only in political but in a business dimension as well,” referring to the Moscow Project, because there is no bigger warranty in any project than consent of (the President of Russia).’

The president continued to insist that the investigation by Mueller into Russia’s attack on the 2016 presidential election and conspiracy between Trump and Moscow was just “fake news.”

As a result, Trump approval rating fell among both Democrats and Republicans. Just 15 percent of Democrats thought he did a good job with Russia. Republicans dropped to 51 percent.

Surprisingly, the poll showed that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s approval fell, too. In October, 48 percent felt he was doing a good job. The new poll indicated that only 43 percent of the interviewed adults approved.

That looked different when the poll broke the results into party lines. A full 71 percent of the Democrats interviewed approved of Mueller’s job, and 21 percent of Republicans approved.

Trump sent out this tweet in the midst of the polling:

‘….Will Robert Mueller’s big time conflicts of interest be listed at the top of his Republicans only Report. Will Andrew Weissman’s horrible and vicious prosecutorial past be listed in the Report. He wrongly destroyed people’s lives, took down great companies, only to be.’

The CNN poll interviewed a random sampling of 1,015 adults from December 6th to 9th. The survey was conducted with 406 landline individuals and 609 cell phone individuals. The survey was conducted in both English and Spanish. Of the sample, 32 percent self-described as Democrats, 26 percent said they were Republicans, and a full 42 percent said that they were “independents or members of another party.” In addition, the responders were asked about additional demographics, “gender, race, age, education, region of the country, and telephone use.” The poll had a margin error of +/- 3.8 percentage points.
