Recent poll suggests Trump’s approval rating continues to fall

New York[USA]: According to a recent poll, US President Donald Trump’s approval rating has dropped over the last month, with a majority of voters now disapproving of his job performance.

According to CNN, a national survey, released by Quinnipiac University, found that 38 percent of American voters approve of Trump’s job performance, while 55 percent disapprove.

A poll released earlier this month by Quinnipiac taken shortly after Trump’s inauguration found that 42 percent of American voters approve of his job performance, while 51 percent disapprove.

Since then, Trump has instituted a variety of controversial measures, including his executive order on immigration and new deportation policies.

His administration has many positions currently unfilled, and town halls of Republican members of Congress have been the sites of protests and outbursts, largely concerning Trump’s call to repeal and replace Obamacare.

38 percent of American voters said they trust Trump to do the right thing “almost all of the time” or “most of the time,” while 61 percent said they trust him to do what is right “some of the time” or “hardly ever.”

Inversely, 58 percent of voters reported they trust US courts to do the right thing “almost all of the time” or “most of the time,” while 40 percent said they trust the courts to do what is right “some of the time” or “hardly ever.”

59 percent of American voters approved of court actions blocking Trump’s travel ban, a revision of which is expected this week.

A majority of voters polled, 55 percent, said they think Trump was not honest and does not have good leadership skills. An even greater number, 60 percent, reported Trump does not share their values.

Quinnipiac University employed live interviewers calling landlines and cell phones to survey 1,323 voters across the country between February 16 and 21. The poll has a margin error of 2.7 percentage points. (ANI)
