Trend Information
Sample and Methodology detail

The As and Bs outweigh the Ds and Fs as American voters grade President Donald Trump's handling of last week's summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, according to a Quinnipiac University National Poll released today.

Responding to the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University National Poll request to grade President Trump on his handling of the summit, results from U.S. voters are:

A - 25 percent;

B - 17 percent;

C - 15 percent;

D - 14 percent;

F - 20 percent.

American voters say 54 - 37 percent that the summit reduced the likelihood of nuclear war. The U.S. gained more from the summit, 7 percent of voters say, as 33 percent say North Korea gained more and 52 percent say both countries gained the same amount.

But President Trump does not deserve the Nobel Peace Prize, voters say 66 - 27 percent. Republicans say 58 - 29 percent that Trump deserves the Nobel Prize, the only listed party, gender, education, age or racial group that feels that way.

American voters disagree 70 - 22 percent with Trump's claim that there is no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea. Republicans are divided as 41 percent agree and 44 percent disagree. Every other listed group disagrees by wide margins.

"American voters say President Donald Trump deserves a pat on the back for his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

"But a trip to the Nobel ceremony in Stockholm is a stretch, say voters, who are not at all convinced the North Korean threat has passed."

American voters disapprove 52 - 43 percent of the job President Trump is doing, compared to a 51 - 40 percent disapproval in a June 6 Quinnipiac University National Poll and Trump's best net approval rating since February 2017.

Voters approve 51 - 45 percent of the way Trump is handling the economy, but disapprove 53 - 44 percent of the way he is handling foreign policy.

Trump has weakened the U.S. position as leader of the free world, 47 percent of voters say, while 40 percent say he has strengthened the U.S. position.

He is too unfriendly to U.S. allies, 47 percent of voters say, while 5 percent say he is too friendly and 45 percent say he has the right attitude.

He is too friendly to dictators 44 percent of voters say, as 6 percent say he is too unfriendly and 45 percent say he has the right attitude.

"President Trump picks up approval points despite a feeling among many voters that he's treating our enemies like friends and our friends like dirt," Malloy said.

Trump and the Media, House, Senate Races

American voters trust the news media more than Trump 53 - 36 percent to tell the truth about important issues.

The news media is an important part of democracy, 65 percent of voters say, while 23 percent say it is the enemy of the people.

By a narrow 49 - 43 percent, including 47 - 39 percent among independent voters, all American voters would like to see the Democratic Party win control of the U.S. House of Representatives this year.

By a similar 49 - 44 percent, including 49 - 41 percent among independent voters, all American voters would like to see the Democratic Party win control of the U.S. Senate.

If a candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives or Senate strongly embraces Trump and his policies, 43 percent of voters are less likely to support that candidate, while 29 percent are more likely and 26 percent say the candidate's position on Trump will have no impact.

From June l4 - 17, Quinnipiac University surveyed 905 voters nationwide, with a margin of error of +/- 3.9 percentage points, including 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.
