Majority of Americans Support Transgender Troops

Trump Still a Working-Class Hero, Democratic Poll Shows

The data marked the lowest approval rating that the polling group had recorded for the president since he assumed office.

More than 50 per cent of those surveyed also said Mr Trump has "attempted to derail or obstruct the investigation into the Russian interference in the 2016 election", and two thirds believe Russia did interfere.

Also worse, the Q poll finds "American voters say 54 - 26 percent that they are embarrassed rather than proud to have Trump as president".

President Donald Trump's approval has hit a new low, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll. Eighty percent of voters surveyed said they disapprove of the way Republicans are handling the issue, while 59 percent said Democrats are handling things the wrong way.

Fifty-seven percent of respondents said they think Trump is abusing the office of the presidency and 60 percent say they believe Trump thinks he is above the law. On these numbers, 46 percent approve of his handling of terrorism, but 47 percent disapprove, leaving him yet again in the red, although only slightly.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning fact-checker PolitiFact ruled Trump's tweet to be mostly false, noting that the conservative-leaning polling group had actually found higher approval for Obama during the same timeframe in his first term.

Voters also aren't fond of many of Trump's policies, including a recent decision to ban transgender people from serving in the military.

Other polls reflect a decline in approval ratings among Americans for the 45th president, too. And a look at Trump's net approval among non-college whites over time, according to Quinnipiac polls, shows a bumpy but pronounced drop since inauguration. In late June, 84% of Republicans approved of Trump's performance - now, 76% of Republicans say the same.

The June 29 national poll found Trump gets small bump from American voters; voters want Democrats to control House, Senate.

"Voters say a soldier is a soldier, no matter what his/her gender identity is", Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac poll, said in a statement released with the survey results.
