Sample and Methodology detail

American voters feel better about the economy and good about their own pocketbooks, but still disapprove 56 - 38 percent of the job President Donald Trump is doing, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today.

Today's approval rating compares to a 57 - 36 percent disapproval in a September 27 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University.

Voters today say 55 - 43 percent that Trump is not fit to serve as president, compared to 56 - 42 percent not fit two weeks ago.

On his job approval, President Trump gets 81 - 12 percent support from Republicans, 55 - 40 percent backing from white voters with no college degree and 52 - 43 percent from white men. Every other listed party, gender, education, age and racial group disapproves.

American voters are divided on Trump's handling of the economy, as 48 percent approve and 46 percent disapprove.

A total of 61 percent of voters - close to an all-time high - say the nation's economy is "excellent" or "good," while 37 percent say it is "not so good" or "poor."

Their personal financial situation is "excellent" or "good," 73 percent of voters say, while 26 percent say it is "not so good" or "poor."

But only 27 percent of voters are "very satisfied" or "somewhat satisfied" with the way things are going in the nation today, while 72 percent are "somewhat dissatisfied" or "very dissatisfied."

Anti-Twitter sentiment hits a new high as 70 percent of voters say the president should stop tweeting from his personal account.

"After a turbulent stretch of heartbreaking tragedies, President Donald Trump is still deep in negative territory," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

"President Trump may not be fit, but the economy is, voters say. They remain troubled by the president's competence, but see the economy booming along under his stewardship."

American voter opinions of most Trump qualities remain negative:
  • 56 - 40 percent that he is not honest;
  • 59 - 38 percent that he does not have good leadership skills;
  • 54 - 44 percent that he does not care about average Americans;
  • 67 - 29 percent that he is not level headed;
  • 61 - 35 percent that he is a strong person;
  • 56 - 40 percent that he is intelligent;
  • 60 - 37 percent that he does not share their values.
NFL Protests

American voters say 58 - 34 percent that Trump's comments on NFL protests were not appropriate. Republicans say 67 - 21 percent the remarks were appropriate and white voters with no college degree are divided 46 - 45 percent. Every other party, gender, education, age and racial group listed says the remarks were not appropriate.

Voters also disapprove 52 - 43 percent of NFL players taking a knee during the National Anthem. There are wide gender, age and racial gaps:
  • Men disapprove 57 - 39 percent while women are divided 48 - 48 percent;
  • Voters 18 to 34 years old approve 66 - 27 percent, while voters over 65 years old disapprove 62 - 34 percent;
  • White voters disapprove 60 - 37 percent, as black voters approve 79 - 18 percent. Hispanic voters are divided 46 - 45 percent.
Voters are divided 48 - 46 percent on their approval of Trump's handling of terrorism. He gets mostly negative approval ratings for handling other key issues:
  • 38 - 58 percent for handling foreign policy;
  • 39 - 56 percent for immigration;
  • 35 - 59 percent for race relations;
  • 37 - 49 percent for taxes.
From October 5 - 10, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,482 voters nationwide with a margin of error of +/- 3 percentage points, including the design effect. Live interviewers call landlines and cell phones.
