Trump Approval Ratings Hit New Lows in Latest Surveys

Majority think Trump administration is running chaotically

That's a 7-point swing in Democrats' direction since last week, when voters were split at 40 percent for each party.

They said Trump tried to derail or obstruct the probe by 58 percent to 37 percent, that Russian Federation did intervene in the election by 63 percent to 31 percent, and that the president acted illegally or unethically toward Russian Federation, 60 percent to 32 percent. This is President Trump's lowest approval and highest disapproval number since he was inaugurated.

The Asbury Park Press wrote, "The Quinnipiac University Poll is considered the gold standard in the business, frequently lauded by USA Today and other national media organizations for its information and accuracy".

Trump's approval rating has dropped down to the 36 percent mark June 25, and July 19 and 24. That's down from 78 in the first Quinnipiac poll of the Trump administration (the margin of error among Republicans in this new poll is 6.9 points). Fifty-seven percent of voters say they think he is abusing the powers of his office, and even more say they believe he is above the law. And with continuous tension reported in the White House, things don't seem to be slowing down. In the history of modern polling, no president has ever seen approval ratings so bad at this point in their tenure.

It may come as no surprise that Democrats are largely against Trump. The survey was conducted entirely prior to Monday's ouster of Anthony Scaramucci from his position as White House communications director, and was already in the field when Reince Priebus left the chief of staff position.

However, the addition of Kelly, a military general, could signal a major change in how the White House presents itself.

Housing prices have been rising briskly in some markets, although there are some signs that these conditions are starting to ease. The bank noted that forward-looking indicators point to continued growth in employment over the period ahead.

Republican voters remained the only demographic group opposed to allowing transgender people in the military.

Americans are increasingly dissatisfied with President Trump's on-the-job performance, according to new polls out this week.

The Quinnipiac poll surveyed 1,125 voters nationwide between July 27 and August 1 over landline telephones and cellphones.

The poll also gauged opinion on how members of Congress are dealing with the Affordable Care Act.

Sixty-eight percent of respondents said they thought transgender people should be allowed to serve in the armed forces.
