Donald Trump's approval rating sinks to new low, latest poll finds

Donald Trump's approval rating sinks to new low, latest poll finds

Disapproval of the President's handling of events rose following the news conference in which he blamed the violence in Charlottesville on aggressors on both sides of the conflict - equating the white supremacists on one side with the "alt-left" on the other side - after his top White House aides spent days trying to clean up after Trump's initial vague response.

President Donald Trump's support among Republicans dropped below 80 percent in two new polls that show his job approval ratings sinking to the lowest level of his presidency. Women who approve of Trump are most likely to say they will never change their minds: 72% of female Trump approvers say they will never strip their support, vs. only 54% of male Trump approvers.

But, there was some agreement on whether or not the murder of Heather Heyer was an act domestic terrorism: 51 percent of Republicans joined 73 percent of Democrats in saying so.

Before President Trump's mind-boggling press conference on Tuesday, 52 percent disapproved of his handling of the situation, while 35 percent approved. In comparison, only 32 percent said they should keep their roles in the administration.

The Survey also found that 60% of Americans, including one in five Republicans, had a negative impression of Trump, with only 34% having a favorable impression, that was compared to 56% unfavorable/37% favorable in June.

Four in 10 Americans now believe Trump should be impeached and removed from office. Sixty-eight percent of Republicans said it was an accurate statement, and 83 percent of Democrats said it was inaccurate.

Recently, Trump has come under fresh scrutiny from both sides of the aisle after failing to immediately condemn white nationalists by name in the aftermath of the Charlottesville, Virginia, protests.

The new study also finds that more Americans think Trump has encouraged racial division. The sample size includes 805 adults for a margin of error of ±3.5 percentage points for full sample.

Quinnipiac surveyed 1,361 voters nationwide from August 9 to August 15, and the poll had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points. The Quinnipiac poll of 1,361 registered voters was conducted August 9-15, and had a margin of error of 3.4 percentage points.
