Trump’s approval rating hit a new low in a fresh poll


President Trump’s approval rating with voters nationwide has sank to its lowest level yet, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll.

The survey out Wednesday found that 33 percent approve of Trump’s job performance, which is the smallest percentage since the president’s inauguration last January.

Sixty-one percent disapprove of Trump’s showing, which is conversely the largest percentage during the same period.

Quinnipiac’s last poll on June 29 discovered 55 percent disapproved of Trump and 40 percent approved of him, meaning the former is up 6 percent and the latter is down 7 percent.

Some Twitter users on Wednesday needled Trump over Quinnipiac’s findings, which found voters responding him to negatively on several fronts.

Other people on the social media platform questioned Quinnipiac’s accuracy regarding Trump and his presidency.

Quinnipiac’s new poll also found the highest disapproval yet for Trump’s personal Twitter account.

Sixty-nine percent said Trump should stop tweeting from the account, while 27 percent prefer he keep using the social media platform.

Wednesday’s results additionally saw that 63 percent think Russia’s government interfered in the 2016 presidential election, while 30 percent disagree with that idea.

Fifty-eight percent say Trump “has attempted to derail or obstruct the investigation into the Russian interference in the 2016 election,” while 37 percent reject that assessment.

The FBI and several congressional committees are probing Russian meddling in the 2016 race, including possible collusion between Russia and Trump’s election campaign.

Trump has repeatedly derided the probes as a “witch hunt” against him and his administration, arguing it is an attempt at undermining his presidency.

Quinnipiac conducted its latest poll of 1,125 voters nationwide via cell and landline telephone interviews from July 27 to Aug. 1. It has a 3.4 percent margin of error.
