Trump’s Approval Rating Hits New Low

WASHINGTON (CBS4) – A new poll indicates more voters than ever are dissatisfied with President Donald Trump’s job in office.

A survey conducted by Quinnipiac University indicates that only a third of American voters approve of the president’s job in office, while 61 percent disapprove.

That’s a drop of seven percentage points from the 40 percent approval rating he received in late June.

According to CBS News, these are the president’s lowest approval and highest disapproval ratings yet.

Majorities of voters said the president is not honest, does not have good leadership skills, isn’t a strong person nor is he intelligent, he doesn’t share their values, and he doesn’t care about the average American.

In addition, according to the poll, Trump was given disapproval ratings for how he’s handled key issues like foreign policy, the economy, immigration, health care, and terrorism.
