Trump's Approval Rating Continues To Dip: Poll

Washington: US President Donald Trump's approval rating has continued to drop over the last month, with a majority of American voters now disapproving of his job performance, a new poll has found.

In a national survey released on Wednesday, Quinnipiac University found that 38 per cent of American voters approve of Trump's job performance, while 55 per cent disapproved, CNN reported.

A poll released earlier this month by Quinnipiac taken shortly after Trump's inauguration on January 20 found that 42 per cent of American voters approved of his job performance, while 51 per cent disapproved.

Since then, Trump has instituted a variety of controversial measures, including his executive order on immigration and new deportation policies.

Thirty-eight per cent of American voters said they trusted Trump to do the right thing "almost all of the time" or "most of the time", while 61 per cent said they trust him to do what is right ôsome of the time" or "hardly ever", the poll showed.

A majority of voters polled, 55 per cent, said they thought Trump was not honest and does not have good leadership skills. An even greater number, 60 per cent, reported Trump did not share their values.

Voters' opinions varied according to gender, reports CNN citing the poll findings.

Thirty-six per cent of women said they approved of Trump's performance while 41 per cent of men did. The President's negative approval rating among independent voters was found to be 38-55 per cent.

Fifty-eight per cent of American voters said they believed Trump's actions were dividing the country; 36 per cent said he was working to unite it.

Quinnipiac University employed live interviewers calling landlines and cell phones to survey 1,323 voters across the country between February 16 and 21.
