Additional Trend Information
Sample and Methodology detail

President Donald Trump plunges to a new low as American voters disapprove 61 - 33 percent of the job he is doing, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today. White men are divided 47 - 48 percent and Republicans approve 76 - 17 percent. White voters with no college degree, a key part of the president's base, disapprove 50 - 43 percent.

Today's approval rating is down from a 55 - 40 percent disapproval in a June 29 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University. This is President Trump's lowest approval and highest disapproval number since he was inaugurated.

American voters say 54 - 26 percent that they are embarrassed rather than proud to have Trump as president. Voters say 57 - 40 percent he is abusing the powers of his office and say 60 - 36 percent that he believes he is above the law.

President Trump is not levelheaded, say 71 - 26 percent of voters, his worst score on that character trait. Voter opinions of most other Trump qualities drop to new lows:
  • 62 - 34 percent that he is not honest;
  • 63 - 34 percent that he does not have good leadership skills;
  • 59 - 39 percent that he does not care about average Americans;
  • 58 - 39 percent that he is a strong person;
  • 55 - 42 percent that he is intelligent;
  • 63 - 34 percent that he does not share their values.
"It's hard to pick what is the most alarming number in the troubling trail of new lows for President Donald Trump," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

"Profound embarrassment over his performance in office and deepening concern over his level-headedness have to raise the biggest red flags.

"The daily drip drip of missteps and firings and discord are generating a tidal wave of bad polling numbers.

"Is there a wall big enough to hold it back?"

American voters give Arizona Sen. John McCain a 57 - 32 percent favorability rating, with a 74 - 18 percent positive score from Democrats and a 60 - 28 percent positive rating from independent voters. Republicans give McCain a negative 39 - 49 percent rating.

Trump gets a negative 34 - 61 percent favorability rating, with a 79 - 17 percent positive score from Republicans. All other groups are negative, with white men at 47 - 48 percent.

That Russian Thing

The president "has attempted to derail or obstruct the investigation into the Russian interference in the 2016 election," American voters believe 58 - 37 percent.

Voters believe 63 - 31 percent that the Russian government interfered in the 2016 election. Republicans don't believe it 61 - 30 percent, while every other group believes by wide margins that the Russians interfered.

Trump did something illegal in dealing with Russia, 30 percent of voters say, while 30 percent say he did something unethical, but not illegal and 32 percent say he did nothing wrong. These numbers are similar for Donald Trump Jr. and Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

American voters give Trump negative approval ratings for handling key issues:
  • 41 - 52 percent for handling the economy;
  • 36 - 59 percent for foreign policy;
  • 46 percent approve of his handling of terrorism and 47 percent disapprove;
  • 38 - 59 percent for immigration;
  • 28 - 65 percent for health care.
Trump's Tweets

Trump should stop tweeting from his personal Twitter account, American voters say 69 - 27 percent, the biggest no-tweet vote so far.

From July 27 - August 1, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,125 voters nationwide with a margin of error of +/- 3.4 percentage points, including the design effect. Live interviewers call landlines and cell phones.

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