However, as many as 55 per cent of United States voters still said they did not approve of the job Trump was doing, the poll found, noting that 60 per cent voters believed that Trump was doing more to divide the country than to unite the country.

The poll, released Friday, finds that just more than half of those surveyed, 53 percent, say that the special counsel probe is a "fair" investigation into Trump's campaign, while 28 percent say it is "unfair".

A total of 75 per cent of American voters said their financial situation was "excellent" or "good", said the poll. The margin of sampling error is ±3.3 percentage points; it is larger for subgroups.

And ultimately, 55 percent of respondents said they didn't trust Trump to do what's right.

The poll does show a dip in confidence in US law enforcement agencies from Republicans, Reuters reported, which marks an unusual distrust from GOP voters, who traditionally largely support such agencies. (But 57 percent said they didn't trust the media to do what's right either).

"Special Counsel Robert Mueller is not out to get President Donald Trump, American voters say, but they do feel the president is out to get Mueller", said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

A new Reuters/Ipsos poll released in the wake of the Nunes memo shows that nearly three in four Republican voters believe the president is a victim of a plan to undermine him; with voters' attitudes on the investigation into alleged collusion between Trump's team and Russian Federation during the 2016 election unsurprisingly split down party lines.

The poll was take February 2-5 - the last day of polling coincided with a stock market plunge followed by a swinging day of corrections - among 1,333 voters via landlines and cellphones with a +/- 3.3 percent margin of error.
