On Thursday, Trump said on Twitter for the second time that his meeting with Putin on Monday in Helsinki was considered a triumph among all "except with the real enemy of the people, the Fake News Media."
Trump added that he looked forward to a second meeting with the Russian leader.
Only 32 percent, or about a third, of Americans approve of Trump's handling of the Helsinki summit, according to CBS' poll. Fifty-five percent disapprove.
The survey shows a partisan divide between Republicans and Democrats, however. While 8 percent of Democrats approve of Trump's meeting with Putin, 68 percent of Republicans said they approved of Trump's handling of the summit.
Perhaps more troubling for the president is that 53 percent of independent voters said they disapproved of Trump's performance, while 29 percent approved. Trump had an edge with independent voters when he defeated Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016.
