Additional Trend Information
Sample and Methodology detail

American voters say 61 - 31 percent President Donald Trump's decision to launch a missile strike in Syria was the right decision, giving him a slight lift in his job approval rating, although it still is a negative 40 - 56 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today.

Today's job approval rating compares to a negative 35 - 57 percent approval rating in April 4 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University.

While President Trump's approval rating has inched up, his disapproval remains fairly constant in the total and among various groups. For example, his negative approval among men goes from 39 - 51 percent April 4 to 46 - 50 percent today. The negative approval among women goes from 31 - 63 percent two weeks ago to 34 - 62 percent today.

American voters are divided on how Trump is handling North Korea as 45 percent approve and 42 percent disapprove.

American voters' opinions of some of Trump's personal qualities are still mostly negative:
  • 58 - 37 percent that he is not honest, compared to 61 - 34 percent April 4;
  • 55 - 40 percent that he does not have good leadership skills, unchanged;
  • 57 - 42 percent that he does not care about average Americans, little change;
  • 63 - 33 percent that he is not level-headed, compared to 66 - 29 percent;
  • 61 - 36 percent that he is a strong person, compared to 64 - 33 percent;
  • 58 - 38 percent that he is intelligent, compared to 60 - 35 percent;
  • 61 - 35 percent that he does not share their values, virtually unchanged. "With only a slight bombing bump, President Donald Trump stays mired in miserable numbers. The first 100 days draw to a close with character flaws overwhelming his strongest traits, intelligence and strength as a person," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.
American voters say 62 - 30 percent that the U.S. missile strike in Syria will not be effective in preventing the Syrian government from using chemical weapons in the future. Voters say 49 - 44 percent that it is not in the U.S. national interest to be involved in the Syrian conflict, but say 52 - 40 percent that America has a "moral responsibility to get involved."

A total of 78 percent of voters are "very concerned" or "somewhat concerned" about the U.S. getting into a war in Syria, like the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. A total of 72 percent of voters are "very concerned" or "somewhat concerned" that U.S. involvement in Syria could lead to armed conflict with Russia.

Trump Family Favorability

American voters give President Trump a negative 39 - 56 percent favorability. First Lady Melania Trump gets a 34 - 24 percent favorability.

First Daughter Ivanka Trump has a positive 36 - 31 percent favorability, but voters say 53 - 36 percent that it is not appropriate that she play a "significant role in the White House."

First Son-in-Law Jared Kushner gets a negative 15 - 32 percent favorability rating, with 50 percent who don't know enough about him to form an opinion of him. Voters say 53 - 32 percent that it is not appropriate that he play a "significant role in the White House."

"When it comes to President Trump's immediate family, Ivanka and the First Lady get so-so marks," Malloy said.

American voters disapprove 56 - 40 percent of the way Trump is handling foreign policy. His grades on handling other issues are:
  • 49 percent approve of the way he is handling U.S. policy toward Syria and 45 percent disapprove;
  • Disapprove 49 - 42 percent of the way he is handling the economy;
  • Disapprove 51 - 44 percent of the way he is handling terrorism;
  • Disapprove 58 - 39 percent of the way he is handling immigration;
  • Disapprove 61 - 31 percent of the way he is handling the environment.
From April 12 - 18, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,062 voters nationwide with a margin of error of +/- 3 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.
