Trump’s approval rating continues to slump


President Trump’s approval rating has dropped 6 percentage points, according to a new poll by Quinnipiac University (QU).

The survey unveiled on Tuesday shows that 57 percent of pollees disapprove of Trump’s performance as president. Only 35 percent actually approve of his performance, while 8 percent claim they were unsure.

Two weeks ago, the same survey showed Trump’s approval rating as higher by two points. Since then, the approval rating has dropped, and the disapproval rating has risen by a percentage point.

Nearly a month ago, on March 7, Trump’s approval rating was at 41 percent. This means that in less than one month, his score has plummeted by 6 points.

In the latest poll, many respondents reacted negatively to Trump’s character and qualities as a person. According to QU’s poll, this is how respondents voted:

 57% say Trump “does not care” about average Americans.

• 66% say the president is not “level-headed.”

• 61% say Trump is “not honest.”

Quinnipiac’s assistant director for polling, Tim Malloy, released a statement following the results of the latest survey:

“President Donald Trump continues to struggle, even among his most loyal supporters. Many of them would be hard pressed to see even a sliver of a silver lining in this troubling downward spiral. President George W. Bush, who hit a negative 28-67 percent on May 14, 2008, had less support, but it took eight years, two unpopular wars and a staggering economy to get there.”

The survey polled 1,171 registered voters nationwide through cell phone and landline interviews from March 30 to April 3. The margin of error calculated: 2.9%.
