In an earlier post, I explained how polling data on the Russian Federation investigation underscores the degree to which partisanship taints Americans' assessment of security politics.When asked about matters related to the Russian Federation investigation, an overwhelming majority of Democrats consistently respond in a fashion that reflects deep suspicion of the activities of President Trump and his advisors.
Sixty-two percent of those surveyed said he is not honest; 63 percent said he does not have good leadership skills; and 59 percent said he does no care about average Americans. Trump has repeatedly praised the poll - which has been rated by polling analysts as less accurate than many of its peers - for its accuracy in instances where it has shown positive ratings.
The president fared poorly on a number of other questions about his character traits. "40 percent he is abusing the powers of his office and say 60 - 36 percent that he believes he is above the law".
While the Q poll represents the lowest approval rating for Trump among recent surveys released, it isn't exactly a insane outlier. Per HuffPost Pollster, Trump's average job approval rating is 37.5%, with disapproval sitting at 58.4%.
"Is there a wall big enough to hold it back?"
And, just to rub salt int he wound, Rasmussen adds: "Trump's overall approval numbers this week are lower than any Barack Obama received during his entire presidency". The telephone poll surveyed 1,125 voters, and had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points.
The Quinnipiac University poll found that 54 percent of Americans are "embarrassed" that Trump is president compared to 26 percent who described themselves as "proud".
