GOP voters still loyal to Trump after controversial Putin meeting

GOP voters still loyal to Trump after controversial Putin meeting

USA special counsel Robert Mueller is probing whether Trump or anyone from his campaign coordinated with Russian Federation in its attempt to tilt the 2016 election toward the Republican. He asked his interviewer, "Say that again, did I hear you?"

However, Trump sent out a tweet last night saying the following.

The White House says President Donald Trump was "obviously" referring to allegations of collusion between his campaign and Russian agents when he tweeted Sunday about "a big hoax".

The poll comes days after liberal legislators and the mainstream media trashed the President's face-to-face meeting with Putin, with former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan going so far as to call the summit "treasonous".

Coats released a statement Monday re-affirming the conclusion of the United States intelligence community that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election after Trump declined to endorse that conclusion during a press conference with Putin in Helsinki.

On the question of Russia's interference in the 2016 election, President Trump appears to have a blind spot he simply can not overcome.

A bare majority of Republicans in the new poll - 51 percent - approve of Trump expressing doubts about USA intelligence conclusions on Russian election interference.

It also may help explain the reluctance of many top Republicans to criticize Trump.

Officials release names of those killed in boat accident
The Springfield News-Leader reported that Stone County Sheriff Doug Rader said a tourist boat reportedly sank on Table Rock Lake. There had been wind gusts of more than 60 miles per hour reported at Branson Airport at the time of the tragic accident.


Criticizing Trump is, perhaps, something Barletta will never do: Barletta makes no bones about his hope that the coalition that propelled Trump to a win of less than 1 percentage point in Pennsylvania over Democrat Hillary Clinton will deliver a victory for him in November.

Trump had just days earlier confirmed his acceptance USA intelligence conclusions about Russian interference.

Democratic Senate leader opposes more meetings between USA and Russian Federation until summit details are known.

On this question, independents lean more negatively than positively, with 22 percent saying America's leadership has gotten stronger under Trump, 47 percent weaker and about one-quarter saying it has stayed the same.

Meanwhile, Trump has railed throughout the week at the news media, blaming reporters for negative coverage of the summit, even though much of the reporting has focused on Republicans' condemnations.

Young Americans - those under age 40 - gave Trump lower marks for his overall handling of the summit than did those over 40.

The Post-ABC poll was conducted by landlines and cellphones from July 18 to 20 among a random national sample of 464 adults.
