Donald Trump has never been particularly popular among the American electorate. After all, he lost the popular vote to Hillary Clinton by millions of votes – a fact he still, nine months later, cannot seem to get over. Now, a Quinnipiac Poll released on Wednesday shows that Trump’s polling numbers have cratered to new lows – even among his base demographics.
From Quinnipiac: “President Donald Trump plunges to a new low as American voters disapprove 61 – 33 percent of the job he is doing….White voters with no college degree, a key part of the president’s base, disapprove 50 – 43 percent.”
A deeper dive into the Quinnippiac poll numbers shows as follows:
60 – 36 percent that he believes he is above the law.
71 – 26 percent say Trump is is not levelheaded
63 – 34 percent that he does not share their values
63 – 34 percent that he does not have good leadership skills
59 – 39 percent that he does not care about average Americans
55 – 42 percent that he is intelligent.
54 – 26 percent that they are embarrassed rather than proud to have Trump as president.
Oh – and a full 62 – 34 of Americans think their president is dishonest.
These are brutal numbers for Trump. Says Tim Malloy, assistant director at Quinnipiac: “It’s hard to pick what is the most alarming number in the troubling trail of new lows for President Donald Trump. Profound embarrassment over his performance in office and deepening concern over his level-headedness have to raise the biggest red flags.”
