Additional Trend Information
Sample and Methodology detail

American voters give President Donald Trump a negative 35 - 57 percent job approval, with negative approval among men and white voters, leaving him below former President Barack Obama's worst approval rating, a negative 38 - 57 percent in 2013, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today.

Today's job approval rating compares to a negative 37 - 56 percent approval rating in a March 22 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University.

President Trump is behind among key elements of his base:
  • Men disapprove 51 - 39 percent;
  • Republicans approve 79 - 14 percent;
  • White voters disapprove 48 - 43 percent.
Disapproval is 63 - 31 percent among women, 91 - 6 percent among Democrats, 57 - 32 percent among independent voters and 77 - 16 percent among non-white voters.

American voters' opinions of some of Trump's personal qualities are mostly negative:
  • 61 - 34 percent that he is not honest;
  • 55 - 40 percent that he does not have good leadership skills;
  • 57 - 39 percent that he does not care about average Americans;
  • 66 - 29 percent that he is not level-headed;
  • 64 - 33 percent that he is a strong person;
  • 60 - 35 percent that he is intelligent;
  • 61 - 34 percent that he does not share their values.
"President Donald Trump continues to struggle, even among his most loyal supporters. Many of them would be hard pressed to see even a sliver of a silver lining in this troubling downward spiral," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

"President George W. Bush, who hit a negative 28 - 67 percent on May 14, 2008, had less support, but it took eight years, two unpopular wars and a staggering economy to get there."

American voters say 55 - 39 percent that President Trump is keeping his campaign promises.

But 52 percent of voters say they are embarrassed to have Trump as president, while 27 percent are proud and 19 percent don't feel either emotion.

Trump gets a negative 28 - 64 percent approval rating for the way he is handling health care. Opinions on other issues are:
  • Disapprove 61 - 29 percent of the way he is handling the environment;
  • Disapprove 48 - 41 percent of the way he is handling the economy;
  • Disapprove 58 - 33 percent of the way he is handling foreign policy;
  • Disapprove 49 - 42 percent of the way he is handling terrorism;
  • Disapprove 57 - 39 percent of the way he is handling immigration issues.
A total of 52 percent of voters say the American economy is "excellent" or "good," while 45 percent say it is "not so good" or "poor." Former President Barack Obama is more responsible than President Trump for the current state of the economy, voters say 66 - 18 percent, including 64 - 26 percent among Republicans. Republicans in Congress

American voters disapprove 70 - 21 percent of the job Republicans in Congress are doing, compared to a 64 - 29 percent disapproval March 22.

Voters disapprove 57 - 34 percent of the job Democrats in Congress are doing.

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan gets a negative 28 - 52 percent favorability rating, compared to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's negative 30 - 47 percent.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell gets a negative 14 - 47 percent favorability rating, compared to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer's negative 25 - 36 percent.

"As President Trump's approval tanks, Congress, especially Republicans, follow right behind him," Malloy said.

"Speaker Paul Ryan is less popular than Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, a long-time target of the Right. Over on the Senate side, it's no party either. Republican leader Mitch McConnell and Democratic leader Chuck Schumer both have terrible numbers."

From March 30 - April 3, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,171 voters nationwide with a margin of error of +/- 2.9 percentage points. Live interviewers call landlines and cell phones.

The Quinnipiac University Poll, directed by Douglas Schwartz, Ph.D., conducts public opinion surveys in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Florida, Ohio, Virginia, Iowa, Colorado and the nation as a public service and for research.
