Russians Sour on Trump in New Poll Amid Sanctions Fight

Russian citizens' views of the U.S. president have turned more negative

Donald Trump’s not getting much love from Russia anymore now that new U.S. sanctions are taking effect. Just 18 percent of Russians view Trump positively as U.S. president, according to a July 30-31 survey of 1,200 people by the Russian Public Opinion Research Center, known as VTsIOM. That’s down from 27 percent in a similar poll three weeks earlier and 38 percent in March.
