Trump approval in GOP-leaning poll drops below Obama's lowest

Trump approval in GOP-leaning poll drops below Obama's lowest

While U.S. President Donald Trump claimed early Monday in a tweet that there was no "chaos" in his White House, voters disagree: 60 percent say the administration is running somewhat or very chaotically, compared with 33 percent who say it is running well.

"It's hard to pick what is the most alarming number in the troubling trail of new lows for President Donald Trump", Tim Malloy, assistant director of the poll, said in a written statement.

Even after six months of shambolic Republican governance, Democrats are still viewed as an unacceptable alternative to many persuadable voters in middle America. A mere 2 percent of Democrats indicated approval of the President.

The former chairman of Trump's campaign also met in private with the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday morning. He said that Trump wonders "What are you guys suggesting? Nothing else occurred", the statement said.

Those who believe he does not have good leadership skills: 63-34 percent. The findings are the worst yet for Trump in the Quinnipiac poll. "Profound embarrassment over his performance in office and deepening concerns over his level-headedness have to raise the biggest heads".

However, the poll did find that 58 percent of people found Trump to be "strong".

White voters with no college degree, a key part of the president's base, disapprove by 50 percent to 43 percent.

On Aug. 2, a Rasmussen Reports survey found that 38 percent of likely US voters approved of Trump's job performance while 62 percent disapproved. Outside of the low approval numbers, the survey also shows that a solid majority of voters - 58% - believe the president has tried to derail or obstruct the investigation into Russian election interference, and 63% of respondents feel Russia attempted to influence the election.

Wednesday's results are down from 55 percent in a June 29 poll.

Voters were more turned off by Trump calling Sessions "beleaguered" and "very weak", with 64 percent of them saying such comments were inappropriate, including 47 percent of Republicans.
