Key findings of the AP-NORC poll on health care

According to Newsweek, the new PPP poll showed that 44 percent of all registered voters surveyed were in favor of Donald Trump's impeachment about two months after he first took office, while 45 percent were against the idea.

The poll was conducted by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research amid the collapse of the GOP's health care overhaul.

On a day when President Trump turned to Twitter to rip the New York Times and one of the most influential conservative caucuses in the House, a new poll found that a majority of Americans believe he is too fast to pick a fight.

In contrast, at this point in his presidency in 2009, President Obama got an A or B from 58 percent of respondents and an F from just 11 percent. Slightly more than half of all female respondents - 51 percent of women - were in favor of impeaching Trump.

But the poll suggests Trump may find it hard to step past health care.

The article explained the number changed when broken down between Democrats, Republicans and Independents, as Democrats viewed polls more favorably with 47 percent stating they have "a great deal" or "a good amount" of confidence in poll results, as opposed to 26 percent among Republicans. It was his worst rating among seven issues the poll tested, which included the economy, foreign policy and immigration.

-Most Americans - 56 percent - describe the national economy as good, while 43 percent describe it as poor. Republicans approve by 79-10 percent, which are strong numbers, though they have gone down 3 points since February.

— Most Americans — 62 percent — say the country is headed in the wrong direction, while just 37 percent say it's headed in the right direction.

Fifty-eight percent of whites without a college degree — who were especially likely to vote for Trump — approve of the job he's doing overall.

More than half of voters feel their taxes are too high, and almost three-quarters think the tax system should be reformed this year - but just one third expect their taxes to go down under President Trump.

The AP-NORC poll of 1,110 adults was conducted March 23-27 using a sample drawn from NORC's probability-based AmeriSpeak panel, which is created to be representative of the US population.

The Reuters/Ipsos poll was conducted online in English in all 50 states. Its margin of error is 4 percent.
