Donald Trump just keeps setting personal records. Sure, they’re records for unpopularity, but he doesn’t need to know that, does he? A new Quinnipiac University poll has Trump at just 33 percent approval, with 61 percent disapproving of his job performance.
Could it be just one bad pollster? Hmm …
Quinnipiac is lower, but not by a lot. And Rasmussen puts Trump at 38 percent? Sheesh, ouch, and ha ha ha.
The bright spots Trump could sift out from the pile of bad numbers Quinnipiac offers up are that majorities of people still think he’s strong and intelligent. That said:
American voters say 54 – 26 percent that they are embarrassed rather than proud to have Trump as president. Voters say 57
40 percent he is abusing the powers of his office and say 60 – 36 percent that he believes he is above the law.
President Trump is not levelheaded, say 71 – 26 percent of voters, his worst score on that character trait. Voter opinions of most other Trump qualities drop to new lows:
- 62 – 34 percent that he is not honest;
- 63 – 34 percent that he does not have good leadership skills;
- 59 – 39 percent that he does not care about average Americans;
And while 55 percent of people saying Trump is intelligent may seem like a solid, even generous, number for him, it doesn’t look as good when you consider that in November 2016, 74 percent of people thought he was intelligent. That’s quite a drop-off in less than a year.
