Poll: Majority of young Americans see Trump as an illegitimate president

President Donald Trump has been besieged with a series of weak polling numbers since taking office -- including a new record low just this week -- and that now includes millennials too.

A new GenFoward poll found a majority of young Americans consider President Trump to be illegitimate. The Associated Press and the Black Youth Project at the University of Chicago teamed up to survey people between the ages of 18 and 30, finding that the Trump presidency doesn't appear to be sitting well with younger voters.

The poll found 57 percent of respondents see Trump's presidency as illegitimate. The majority includes 75 percent of young African-Americans and large majorities of Latinos and Asians.

However, a small majority (53 percent) of young whites consider his presidency legit.

All in all, just 22 percent of all young adults approve of Trump's handling of the job so far -- compared to 62 percent who disapprove.

Democrat John Lewis questioned Trump's legitimacy earlier this year ahead of his inauguration.

During an interview with NBC News' Meet The Press, Rep. Lewis said "it's going to be very difficult. I don't see this president-elect as a legitimate president."

Lewis cited the allegations of Russian interference in the election to back his statement. "I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected," he told NBC. "And they helped destroy the candidacy of Hillary Clinton."

On Monday FBI Director James Comey confirmed the agency had been probing possible Trump and Russian connections during the campaign since July.

"Because it is an open, ongoing investigation and is classified, I cannot say more about what we are doing and whose conduct we are examining," Comey said.

Trump's latest job approval ratings fell to a new low over the weekend. The Gallup poll marks his latest approval at just 37 percent, marking the lowest point of his presidency.
