Some of the president's dip in support may be related to developments associated with fired FBI Director James Comey, who testified last week that Trump directed him to let investigations into former Trump national security adviser Mike Flynn go.

According to a new HuffPost/YouGov poll, most Americans find Comey to be more trustworthy than President Trump.

More people trust Comey by a 20-point margin, as 46 percent to 26 percent, say he is more honest and trustworthy than the president.

Among those polled that watched Comey's historic testimony on Thursday, 43 percent said that it didn't change their minds, while 18 percent said it improved their view of Trump and 39 percent saying it worsened their view of the president.

Attorney General JeffSessions is set to appear before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday, and has said he will answer questions about his dealings with Russian officials.
