Emirates remains committed to the US market despite plans to slash 20 percent of its flights in the wake of tougher security and visa measures put in place under the Trump administration, the airline's president said Thursday.
It's been a truly bruising couple of weeks for the airline, and this is reflected in the poll's numbers.
As the president has waded more into world affairs, 39 percent of respondents said they believe he will embroil the United States into World War III, while a slightly bigger group, 40 percent, believe Trump won't start a massive war.

United Airlines is almost as unpopular as U.S. President Donald Trump, according to a new Public Policy Polling survey released Thursday.
With 51 percent saying they think Obama had a better handle on world affairs, compared to the 39 percent who said that of Trump.

While the family received an apology and $100 travel voucher, Furfey demanded that United Airlines as well as the others should "review its procedures" to avoid similar situations.

Trump's approval rating has mainly stayed in the cellar since he took office, and he is garnering far less support early in his early tenure than his predecessors in the White House. Comparatively, 52 percent of Republican respondents said they were "very excited" to vote.
A Public Policy Poll (PPP) indicates that 42% of Americans said they think higher of United than Trump while 40% say they favor the President. "But this polling suggests that, at the very least, many of his voters see room for improvement".
