WASHINGTON (AP) - There's a lot confronting President Donald Trump as he's set to give his State of the Union address on Tuesday night.

There's impeachment, the presidential campaign and the global virus health threat. But one thing about the Trump era has remained remarkably steady, and that's public opinion on the president.

Approval of Trump has stayed persistently in negative territory, and the country is more polarized now than it has been under any other president.

Polls also show Americans express significant dissatisfaction with the direction of the country and even more so with the state of politics. But Americans have largely positive views of both the economy and how Trump is handling it.
