  • Trump Still a Working-Class Hero, Democratic Poll Shows

A little over a week ago, President Donald Trump announced on Twitter that the USA military would no longer let transgender people serve in the military, reversing the policy established by former President Barrack Obama.

President Trump hit a record low approval in a new poll from Quinnipiac University - only 33 percent of Americans now approve of the president (margin of error +/- 3.4 percentage points).

The poll's findings also mark a new high for the president's disapproval rating, which now stands at 61 percent of voters.

The president's approval ratings in the conservative-leaning Rasmussen poll generally have been higher than in other polls. A majority of all respondents, 59 percent, disapproved of the way Democrats in Congress are handling the issue.

They disapproved 60 percent to 32 percent.

Military households approved of transgender people serving in the military 55 percent to 39 percent, according to the poll.


The June 8 national poll found Merkel challenges Trump as leader of free world; voters oppose GOP health care bill nearly 4-1. Voters also responded negatively to questions about the president's personal demeanor, with 71 percent saying he is not level-headed.

The latest YouGov poll (B+): 37% approve, 54% disapprove (31 July - 1 August).

A quarter of those polled said they strongly approve of how Trump is performing in the White House, while 50 percent strongly disapprove. This matches a previous low in Gallup's polling of the president's approval.

It found that 62% disapprove of Donald Trump, well ahead of the 38% who approve of his performance, giving him a net approval rating of -24%. Buried in that poll is one sign of where he's losing that support: For the first time, the poll showed Trump with a negative net approval rating among white Americans without a college degree.

The July 12 New York State poll found Gov. Cuomo's approval drops to near record low; Cuomo gets low grades for handling transit.

The Asbury Park Press wrote, "The Quinnipiac University Poll is considered the gold standard in the business, frequently lauded by USA Today and other national media organizations for its information and accuracy".
