New poll reveals bad news for Trump


A new poll released Monday revealed that more than two-thirds of adults in the United States view President Donald Trump’s use of Twitter as inappropriate and do not believe that he is acting as a positive role model.

When asked in the ABC News/Washington Post poll if Trump has acted in an “unpresidential” manner since his January inauguration, 70 percent of respondents said that he has. That number dropped to 38 percent among Republicans surveyed.

Twenty-four percent of respondents viewed Trump’s image and behavior as president as “fitting and proper.”

On the subject of the president’s tweets, 21 percent of all adults view them as “refreshing,” while 52 percent believe they are “dangerous.”

According to the poll, taken from July 10-13, Trump’s overall approval ratings dipped to 36 percent, a record low.

Trump fared better in a Bloomberg survey released Monday in which he earned a 40 percent approval rating. Fifty-five percent of U.S. adults do not view the president’s job performance favorably, an increase of 12 points since December.

Trump received his best scores on his handling of the economy, with 46 percent of respondents approving and 44 percent disapproving.

The ABC poll was conducted via landline and cell phone and included 1,001 randomly selected adults nationwide. The survey’s margin of error was 3.5 percentage points.

Bloomberg’s survey was also a phone survey of 1,001 U.S. adults and had a 3.1 percentage point margin of error.
