8:07 am
immigration. what complicates that is that many republicans, at least four republicans did not vote to keep the government open either on friday. if republicans can get unified they might be able to figure out a way to get to the next step. my guess is what's most likely is you'll see some kind of extension reopening the government for a few weeks in return for some more negotiations over immigration and daca. they are not there yet. >> so this thing could keep going. let's gig -- dig into the abc "washington post" poll trump's approval rating historically low. also we have nearly half of americans questioning his mental stability and nearly two third rejecting his assertion he's a genius. how damaging is this dynamic? >> we've never seen anything like this before. one year into a presidency. the biggest problem for the president that is likely the biggest drag on republicans into the midterms. if democrats take over the house

the chances of president trump getting impeached in the house go up dramatically. that's one big concern right now. the other thing to look at here is combine the approval ratings with the president with the fact you have the most positive views on the economy in almost 20 years, 17 years, the fact the president's approval rating is that low when people have such a strong view of the economy should be a warning sign for the white house. >> real quick with the russia investigation, robert mueller's approval has dipped 8 points. is that a sign the strategy to discredit him is working? >> a little bit. i think many republicans in congress have convinced more republicans that robert mueller has problems with his investigation. in the end what happens with the investigation is going to depend on the evidence that robert mueller combines, not what's showing up in polls. >> george has a big show coming up.
