This is according to an NPR/PBS NewsHour Marist Poll that surveyed more than 1200 adults. The 54 percent number is up 5 percentage points from February's 49 percent.

A Washington Post/ABC News poll last month found that the president also has a credibility issue regarding Russia's interference in last year's election, with more than 70 percent of Americans saying they either have only some or no trust in Trump's statements regarding the ongoing investigation.

However, Thursday's NPR/PBS poll also found that 73 percent of Republicans now think that President Donald Trump has done nothing wrong with Russia.

While 25 percent of Republicans think he did something illegal, and 29 percent think what he did wasn't illegal, but unethical.

Intelligence agencies say that Russian President Vladimir Putin orchestrated hacking Democratic National Committee emails and had them sent to sites like WikiLeaks, in order to help Trump win the election.

On the eve before the president is set to meet with Putin, Trump said in a press conference in Poland 'nobody really knows' about what happened with the Russian hacking.

Trump's meeting with Putin is set to happen at the G-20 summit in Hamburg on Friday.
