Quinnipiac poll: President Trump's job approval sinks to 33%

Losing the White Working Class, Too
Trump Still a Working-Class Hero, Democratic Poll Shows

The other numbers compiled by Quinnipiac University also don't paint a nice picture for Trump. Fifty-seven percent of voters say they think he is abusing the powers of his office, and even more say they believe he is above the law.

The poll also reflected the deep partisan divide over the Russian Federation investigation that has consumed much of Trump's presidency.

The majority of 1,125 voters across the U.S. in the poll said Mr Trump was not honest, did not have good leadership skills, was not intelligent and did not care about them. And (standard poll-story disclaimer) this is only one poll. Those surveyed who strongly disapproved of his job performance outweighed those who strongly approved by a whopping 2:1 margin, Silver calculated. The polls used in his average split Trump's approval rating into four categories: strongly approve, somewhat approve, somewhat disapprove and strongly disapprove. Rasmussen found in June, for instance, that Trump's approval rating had risen all the way to 50 percent, which is by no means stellar but is a good result for a president who has seen his popularity decline steadily since taking office. Six months in, Trump had the worst approval rating of any president since modern polling began. The survey was conducted entirely prior to Monday's ouster of Anthony Scaramucci from his position as White House communications director, and was already in the field when Reince Priebus left the chief of staff position.

A Quinnipiac poll, also released yesterday, pointed in an even more discouraging direction for the White House.

By contrast, the Red Crescent reported at least 450 Palestinians were wounded in the demonstrations, almost half from tear gas. Muslim leaders are calling on worshipers to demonstrate outside rather than enter the mosque for Friday prayers.

The June 29 national poll found Trump gets small bump from American voters; voters want Democrats to control House, Senate. What's more, 55% of voters in military households said transgender people should be able to serve.

The poll surveyed working-class white voters in pivotal districts that Democrats are targeting in the midterms.

The poll also gauged opinion on how members of Congress are dealing with the Affordable Care Act. But there's at least one hot-button issue they're in wide agreement on: President Donald Trump shouldn't ban transgender people from the United States military.
