Much of the analysis of the consequences of trials with President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former lawyer Michael Cohen was August 21, 2018, the worst day of Trump's presidency.
But a recent poll by NBC News and The Wall Street Journal suggests that Trump voters seem to be keeping these legal developments in check.
The NBC News / Wall Street Journal poll of 18.-22. August showed that Trump's approval rating for the polled republicans was 46%, with 51% disapproving of the president's workload.
These numbers remained in a follow-up survey of the 22-25. August, in which Trump's Republican approval rate was 44%. 52% said they disapprove.
A Fox News survey of 1,009 registered voters, which took place on 19 and 21 August, found that 45% of respondents endorsed Trump's work, while 53% said they disapprove.
The Fox News poll also signals a potentially disturbing development in Russia's perception of Robert Mueller as a special advisory service. The survey showed an upward trend in Mueller's approval among registered voters: 59% in the 19-21 August survey, compared with 48% just one month earlier.
In response to the legal developments surrounding Cohen and Manafort, Trump tightened his criticism of Müller and the Russia investigation last week. He also opened new broadsides against Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who promptly fired on the president.
