In an earlier poll I posted, I talked about how Congress was losing the Republican voters.
Also from Quinnipiac, it appears the president is losing support, as well.
In the latest measure of Trump’s job performance, his approval hovers in the low 30s.
The findings mark Trump’s lowest approval rating and highest disapproval rating in the Quinnipiac poll. Sixty-one percent of respondents say they disapprove of the President’s performance, with 55% of people saying they strongly disapprove — the highest share of respondents yet.
Trump’s numbers declined more among Republicans than they did among Democrats, who had already viewed the President unfavorably. In late June, 84% of Republicans approved of Trump’s performance — now, 76% of Republicans say the same. Seventeen percent of Republicans now say they disapprove of the way Trump is performing in the job.
I’d suggest he stay off the golf course and Twitter, keep his head down and listen to his Cabinet, but to do so would be out of character, and at 70-years old, he’s not likely to change now.
So what other numbers were included in this poll?
- 63 percent say Trump does not have good leadership skills, nor does he share their values.
- 62 percent say he is not honest.
- Only 26 percent say he is level-headed.
- 46 percent approve of his handling of terrorism, while another 47percent disapprove.
The majority of respondents to the poll also have a problem with his foreign policy, his handling of the economy, immigration, and health care.
These are all pretty bad for a president who should still be in the honeymoon period of his presidency. In fact, no president since modern polling began has ever had such an abysmal showing.
Using both cell phone and landline calling, 1,125 American voters were polled. The polling went on from July 27 to August 1, and has a margin of error of 3.4 percent.
