shifted from 39 percent approving to 29 percent with the percentage who disapprove of the president rising from 56 percent to 63 percent.
“There is no way to spin or sugarcoat these sagging numbers,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll said in a statement. “The erosion of white men, white voters without college degrees and independent voters, the declaration by voters that President Donald Trump’s first 100 days were mainly a failure and deepening concerns about Trump’s honesty, intelligence and level headedness are red flags that the administration simply can’t brush away.”
Quinnipiac even asked those polled to share the first word that comes to mind about the president. Then numbers they shared are not percentages, but are reflective of many voters; attitudes.

Trump’s sagging support is also reflected in voter’s preferences for Congress. “If Democrats had won control of the U.S. Senate in the 2016 elections, the country would be in a better place than it is now, 41 percent of voters say, while 27 percent say it would be in a worse place and 30 percent say it would be the same,” according to the press release.

Even the media is benefiting from Trump’s dismal ratings. When asked, “Who do you trust more to tell you the truth about important issues: President Trump or the news media?” 57 percent of voters said they trust the news media more.
