New Polls: As an Individual, Trump is Disliked, Even By Many Who Support Him, and Most Don't Tru
Americans don't particularly like Donald Trump, even many that support his presidency. While his approval rating has been fairly consistent at about 42%, a new Quinnipiac University National Poll released today finds that just 31% of American voters like the President as an individual. 59% dislike him.
Quinnipiac: "Not the kind of numbers that gets you a date to the prom - or helps your party as the Midterm Elections approach. Only one in three Americans 'likes' President Donald Trump," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll."
Voters don't like the way Trump has handled race issues either.
Quinnipiac: "President Trump does not treat people of color with the same amount of respect he affords white people, American voters say 54 - 39 percent."
American voters say 54 - 37 percent that "President Trump has emboldened people who hold racist beliefs to express those beliefs publicly."
CNN has also released some polling results today concerning the Russian investigation and 59% disapprove of how the President has handled questions concerning his ties with Russia. More from the CNN poll:
CNN: "About 6 in 10 say the investigation itself is a serious matter that should be fully investigated, while 4 in 10 say it's mainly an effort to discredit Trump's presidency, numbers that have remained nearly constant since last summer."
"A majority (56%) say they think Trump has attempted to interfere in the investigation, about the same as said so in February (55%). Most think Trump's public statements about the investigation are largely false (56%, same as in December)."
And 57% of Americans believe that President Trump did know that members of his campaign were in contact with Russian operatives.
