Voters Wary of Trump, Confident in Economy

Voters Wary of Trump, Confident in Economy

Even though 66 percent of American voters believe the economy is either "excellent" or "good", only 37 percent believe that Trump's policies are helping the economy.

A new poll gave President Trump several pieces of bad news on Wednesday night: After the Trump first year, 39 percent of Americans would give his presidency a failing grade, while a large majority think he is dishonest, lacks leadership skills and is unfit to serve as president. "Something noble about the presidency", former CBS news anchor Dan Rather told Salon in November. The president also received an "A" from 16 percent of voters, a "B" from another 16 percent, a "C" from 11 percent of voters and 17 percent give him a "D".

Now, almost a year into Trump's tenure at the White House, almost six-in-10 voters in Georgia hold an unfavorable view of the president.

As for the Quinnipiac poll, 59 per cent of those surveyed disapprove of Trump's handling of the Oval Office, while 36 per cent approve.

On Twitter, Trump insisted that he was a " very stable genius " in defense of some critics speculating about his mental health. He urged his followers to "watch the hatred and unfairness of this CNN flunky!"

Even worse, an incredible 57 percent of respondents said Trump is "not fit for office" and 69 percent said he isn't "level-headed".

More than half of the 43 words uttered about Trump's freshman year at least five times, 25, were negative, while just 10 were positive and eight were considered neutral, including "interesting" and "different".

Quinnipiac surveyed 1,106 voters from January 5-9 with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.6 percentage points.

"President Trump can hang his hat on the economy, but must share the hat rack with President Barack Obama, as two-thirds of the country see the economic picture as excellent or good", Malloy said.
