Additional Trend Information
Sample and Methodology detail

Wide gender, racial and political gaps leave American voters divided on whether President Donald Trump is "mentally stable," as 45 percent say he is stable and 47 percent say he is not stable, according to a Quinnipiac University National Poll released today.

President Trump is stable, men say 53 - 40 percent, while women say 53 - 39 percent that he is not, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds. White voters say 51 - 43 percent he is stable, as black voters disagree 71 - 15 percent. Republicans say 89 -9 percent that Trump is stable. Democrats say 80 - 10 percent he is not stable. Independent voters are divided as 46 percent say he is stable and 45 percent say he is not stable.

American voters disapprove 57 - 38 percent of the job President Trump is doing.

Trump is doing more to divide the nation than to unite the nation, voters say 64 - 31 percent. Every listed party, gender, education, age and racial group says the president is dividing the nation except Republicans, who say 70 - 24 percent that he is doing more to unite the nation, and white voters with no college degree, who are divided 48 - 46 percent.

Trump does not respect people of color as much as he respects white people, voters say 59 - 38 percent. Republicans, white voters with no college degree and white men are the only listed groups who say he respects people of color as much as white people.

"President Donald Trump can't seem to improve his approval rating, perhaps because of the troubling fact that half of the voters we spoke to think he is mentally unstable," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

"The president is a divider, not a uniter, say an overwhelming number of voters, an assessment made even more disturbing by his perceived lack of respect for people of color."

American voters say 58 - 35 percent the comments President Trump allegedly made about immigrants from certain countries are racist.

American voters are divided on the way Trump is handling the economy, as 48 percent approve and 46 percent disapprove. He gets negative marks on handling other key issues:
  • 36 - 60 percent on foreign policy;
  • 33 - 60 percent on health care;
  • 38 - 60 percent on immigration;
  • 42 - 51 percent on taxes.
Trump v. Oprah

In a very early hypothetical presidential matchup, Oprah Winfrey, running as a Democrat, beats Trump 52 - 39 percent.

Women rally to Oprah 58 - 33 percent, while men are split 45 - 45 percent. Oprah leads 88 - 4 percent among black voters and 66 - 24 percent among Hispanic voters, while white voters go 47 percent for Trump and 44 percent for Winfrey.

Republicans back Trump 84 - 10 percent as Democrats go to Oprah 88 - 4 percent. Independent voters back Oprah 49 - 38 percent.

But American voters say 66 - 14 percent that electing a celebrity to the office of president is a bad idea.

In a question in which no opponent is named, voters say 65 - 24 percent that they would not be inclined to vote for Oprah for president.

These same voters say 62 - 34 percent they would not be inclined to vote for Trump.

By a narrow 48 - 44 percent, voters would be inclined to vote for former Vice President Joe Biden for president. Voters would not be inclined, 55 - 39 percent, to vote for U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont for president and also turn thumbs down, 49 - 13 percent, on Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York.

From January 12 - 16, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,212 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 nationwide public opinion surveys, and statewide polls in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Florida, Ohio, Virginia, Iowa and Colorado as a public service and for research.
