According to a new poll by Washington Post and University of Maryland, 71% of Americans believe politics have reached a dangerous low. With Trump's average approval rating floating at around 36% and disapproval rating at 58% (according to Gallup), that's not really anything unexpected.

Some 1,663 adults were interviewed between September 27 and October 6. Just a bit more than 50% (51%) of those polled said that Trump personally deserves a lot of blame for the dysfunction in the political system. 65% of the people blamed the amounts of money in politics, 56% wealthy donors and people with extreme views. Total of 70% (38% for Republicans, 32% for Democrats) also put a blame on either party, 47% blamed also members of congress.

Also, 49% people also place a lot of blame on the news media and social media.

In August a different kind of poll was conducted about Trump by Pew.
