Additional Trend Information
Sample and Methodology detail

President Donald Trump begins his term with a negative 36 - 44 percent job approval rating from American voters, including a negative 33 - 50 percent rating from women, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today. Another 19 percent are undecided.

President Barack Obama scored a positive 59 - 25 percent approval rating in his first post- inaugural poll by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University on March 4, 2009.

There are party, gender, age and racial gaps in President Trump's approval rating:
  • Republicans approve 81 - 3 percent, while Democrats disapprove 77 - 4 percent and independent voters disapprove 45 - 35 percent;
  • Men approve 41 - 38 percent, as women disapprove 50 - 33 percent;
  • Voters 18 to 34 years old disapprove 51 - 26 percent and voters 35 to 49 years old disapprove 53 - 30 percent, but voters 50 to 64 years old approve 47 - 33 percent and voters over 65 are divided 41 - 41 percent;
  • White voters approve by a narrow 43 - 40 percent, while non-white voters disapprove 55 - 20 percent.
Americans are optimistic 53 - 43 percent about the next four years with Trump as president and say 44 - 36 percent that he will help rather than hurt the nation's economy.

President Trump will be a worse president than Barack Obama, 50 percent of American voters say, and 37 percent say he will be a better president.

Trump will be a "great" president, 18 percent of voters say; 25 percent say he will be a "good" president; 16 percent say he will be "not so good" and 36 percent say he will be "bad."

"Stumbling out of the blocks, President Donald Trump is considered a divider not a uniter, flunking on honesty, empathy and level headedness, while his predecessor sees his legacy burnished by better and better numbers every polling cycle," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll. "But voters are optimistic in general and confident he will help the economy."

American voters give President Trump a negative 39 - 52 percent favorability rating. Vice President Mike Pence gets a split 37 - 36 percent favorability rating.

Looking at Trump's personal qualities, American voters say:
  • 56 - 39 percent that he is not honest;
  • 49 - 46 percent that he has good leadership skills;
  • 53 - 44 percent that he does not care about average Americans;
  • 62 - 33 percent that he is not level-headed;
  • 68 - 29 percent that he is a strong person;
  • 65 - 32 percent that he is intelligent.
Donald Trump will do more to divide the country, rather than unite the nation, voters say 55 - 40 percent. His policies will help their personal financial situation, 31 percent of voters say, while 28 percent say they will hurt and 38 percent say they will make no difference.

Best/Worst President

American voters select the best president in the last 70 years:
  • 30 percent name Ronald Reagan;
  • 29 percent name Barack Obama;
  • 12 percent pick John Kennedy;
  • 9 percent select Bill Clinton;
  • 3 percent each for Dwight Eisenhower and George W. Bush;
  • 2 percent each for Harry Truman, Lyndon Johnson, Jimmy Carter and George H.W. Bush;
  • Less than 1 percent for Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford.
A list of the worst presidents shows:
  • 24 percent for Richard Nixon;
  • 23 percent for Barack Obama;
  • 22 percent for George W. Bush;
  • 10 percent for Jimmy Carter;
  • 5 percent for Ronald Reagan;
  • 4 percent for Bill Clinton;
  • 3 percent for Lyndon Johnson;
  • 2 percent for George H.W. Bush;
  • 1 percent for Gerald Ford;
  • Less than 1 percent for Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower and John Kennedy.
From January 20 - 25, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,190 voters nationwide with a margin of error of +/- 2.8 percentage points. Live interviewers call landlines and cell phones.
