The findings indicate Trump’s lowest approval rating and highest disapproval rating in the Quinnipiac poll. Sixty-one percentage of respondents say they disapprove of the President’s operation, with 55% of people saying they strongly disapprove — the share of respondents nevertheless.
Trump’s numbers declined more among Republicans than they did among Democrats, who had already seen the President unfavorably. In June, 84 percent of Republicans approved of Trump’s performance — now, 76 percent of Republicans say the same. Seventeen percent of Republicans now say they disapprove of how Trump is performing in the job.
The President also reached new lows on a number of additional measures. The poll found that 63% of voters say they don’t think Trump has good leadership skills and that he doesn’t share their values. Sixty-two percent do not think that the President is fair, and only 26% say he is level-headed. The findings would be the worst yet for Trump in the Quinnipiac poll.
A majority of voters also say they disapprove of Trump’s performance on the economy, foreign policy, immigration, and health care. Voters are split with 46% expressing 47% and approval expressing disapproval, on his handling of terrorism.
Trump’s numbers are also historically weak for a president this far into his term. Six months in, Trump had the worst approval rating of any president since polling began.
