Quinnipiac University Poll: Trump Sinks To The Low 30% Approval

The weekly Quinnipiac University Poll was published this morning. The poll is a weekly assessment, among other things, of the nation's 45th President. It is important to point out, Quinnipiac had a decided Left lean, as indicated via the survey methodology below. On the other hand, the viewer has a better than moderate response rate from "Independent" registered voters.

All said, the survey tracks along with other national surveys in showing Trump is eroding into a not so popular reality TV show.  

Quinnipiac Survey methododgy

This RDD telephone survey was conducted from July 27 – August 1, 2017 throughout the nation. 

Responses are reported for 1,125 self-identified registered voters with a margin of sampling error of +/- 3.4 percentage points, including the design effect. Margins of sampling error for subgroups are available upon request. 

Surveys are conducted in English or Spanish dependent on respondent preference with live interviewers calling landlines and cell phones. All data was collected and tabulated by the Quinnipiac University Poll. 

PARTY IDENTIFICATION QUESTION WORDING - Generally speaking, do you consider yourself a Republican, a Democrat, an Independent, or what? 


Republican 23% 
Democrat 33
 Independent 37 
Other/DK/NA 7


President Donald Trump plunges to a new low as American voters disapprove 61 - 33 percent of the job he is doing, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today. White men are divided 47 - 48 percent and Republicans approve 76 - 17 percent. White voters with no college degree, a key part of the president's base, disapprove 50 - 43 percent. 

Today's approval rating is down from a 55 - 40 percent disapproval in a June 29 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University. This is President Trump's lowest approval and highest disapproval number since he was inaugurated. 

American voters say 54 - 26 percent that they are embarrassed rather than proud to have Trump as president. Voters say 57 - 40 percent he is abusing the powers of his office and say 60 - 36 percent that he believes he is above the law. 

President Trump is not level headed, say 71 - 26 percent of voters, his worst score on that character trait. Voter opinions of most other Trump qualities drop to new lows:

62 - 34 percent that he is not honest;
63 - 34 percent that he does not have good leadership skills;
59 - 39 percent that he does not care about average Americans;
58 - 39 percent that he is a strong person;
55 - 42 percent that he is intelligent;
63 - 34 percent that he does not share their values.

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

We will pass on through this piece without further comment beyond this:
Any reality TV Show with declining ratings as at the 33% level would be canceled outright.
