Sample and Methodology detail



American voters approve 52 - 42 percent of the way President Donald Trump is handling the nation's policy toward North Korea, and support 61 - 30 percent the military action against Syria after the alleged use of chemical weapons, according to a Quinnipiac University National Poll released today.

President Trump received a negative 44 - 48 percent grade for handling North Korea in a May 10, 2017 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University.

Despite these positive grades, American voters disapprove 54 - 39 percent of the job the President is doing, compared to a 52 - 41 percent disapproval in an April 10 poll.

Trump gets negative grades for handling U.S. policy with other countries:
  • 36 - 56 percent for handling Russia;
  • 42 - 48 percent for handling China;
  • 44 percent approve of his handling of Syria and 46 percent disapprove.
American voters approve 66 - 27 percent of Trump's planned meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, but say 51 - 45 percent they do not have confidence in Trump to handle the situation with North Korea.

Voters also say 73 - 19 percent that North Korea will not give up its nuclear weapons.

"President Donald Trump remains as unpopular as ever when voters rate his job performance overall," said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

"But in two key policy areas - North Korea and Syria - that have dominated the news flow over the last few weeks, he is getting better grades.

"He gets a small majority of voters approving his dealings with North Korea and 2-1 backing for his Syria attack. And, by more than that margin, voters back his planned meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un."

"But these two areas seem to be the exception to the rule that has kept President Trump's popularity in the dumpster for his entire presidency," Brown added.

"Even as voters give him higher grades on North Korea and Syria, they do not think he is making the world a safer place."

President Trump is making the world safer, 37 percent of American voters say, but 55 percent say Trump is making the world less safe.

Members of the president's national security team get good grades as voters approve:
  • 59 - 22 percent of the job Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis is doing;
  • 42 - 29 percent of the job Central Intelligence Agency Director Mike Pompeo is doing;
  • 63 - 17 percent of the job United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley is doing;
  • 44 - 35 percent of the job White House Chief of Staff John Kelly is doing.
Voters split 37 - 35 percent in their approval of National Security Advisor John Bolton.

Approval of Congress and Its Leaders

American voters disapprove 69 - 22 percent of the job Republicans in Congress are doing and disapprove 66 - 26 percent of the job Democrats in Congress are doing.

Voters say 48 - 40 percent, including 48 - 36 percent among independent voters, they would like the Democratic Party to win control of the House of Representatives in this year's elections.

Voters say 48 - 42 percent, including 47 - 40 percent among independent voters, they would like to see Democrats win control of the U.S. Senate this year.

American voters do not like congressional leaders, especially Republicans, disapproving:
  • 62 - 22 percent of the job Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is doing;
  • 58 - 33 percent of the job House Speaker Paul Ryan is doing;
  • 46 - 34 percent of the job Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is doing;
  • 58 - 30 percent of the job House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is doing.
Ryan's term as House Speaker has been mainly a failure, voters say 57 - 31 percent.

From April 20 - 24, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,193 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, Colorado and Texas as a public service and for research.
