Latest Poll Numbers For Trump Are Going DOWN (Cartoon image is by Gary Varvel in the Indianapolis Star.)
This should be crushing for our narcissist-in-chief and his supporters. It turns out that his poll numbers are not only not improving -- they are going down! The following is from the latest Quinnipiac University Poll:
American voters today give President Donald Trump a negative 38 - 55 percent job approval rating, his worst net score since he took office, down from a negative 42 - 51 percent approval rating in a February 7 Quinnipiac University national poll. 
President Trump's negative scores are 36 - 59 percent among women and 41 - 50 percent among men, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds. Republicans approve 83 - 10 percent, while negative approval ratings are 5 - 91 percent among Democrats and 38 - 55 percent among independent voters. 
Trump gets a negative 39 - 55 percent favorability rating, also his worst net score since taking office. Vice President Mike Pence gets a split 41 - 40 percent favorability. 
Opinions on most of Trump's personal qualities also are negative, as American voters say:

  • 55 - 40 percent that he is not honest;
  • 55 - 42 percent that he does not have good leadership skills;
  • 53 - 44 percent that he does not care about average Americans;
  • 63 - 33 percent that he is not level-headed;
  • 64 - 32 percent that he is a strong person;
  • 58 - 38 percent that he is intelligent;
  • 60 - 37 percent that he does not share their values.
Trump is doing more to unite the country, 36 percent of American voters say, while 58 percent say he is doing more to divide the nation. 
"President Donald Trump's popularity is sinking like a rock," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll. 
"He gets slammed on honesty, empathy, level headedness and the ability to unite. And two of his strong points, leadership and intelligence, are sinking to new lows. 
"This is a terrible survey one month in." 
A total of 38 percent of American voters think they can trust Trump to do what is right "almost all of the time" or "most of the time," and 61 percent think they can trust Trump to do what is right "some of the time" or "hardly ever." 

From February 16 - 21, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,323 voters nationwide with a margin of error of +/- 2.7 percentage points. Live interviewers call landlines and cell phones.
