After Trump’s catastrophic press conference performance, a new poll was conducted and displayed a drastic change in the President-elect’s approval rating.
Released by Quinnipiac University, the poll shows that 51 percent said they disapprove of the job Trump is doing as president-elect compared to 37 percent who said they approve. Meanwhile, this same poll shows that 55 percent of Americans approve of the job President Barack Obama is doing.
Here is an in-depth explanation courtesy of Quinnipiac:
Donald Trump will be a worse president than Barack Obama, 45 percent of voters say, while 34 percent say he will be a better president and 15 percent say he will be about the same, American voters tell the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll.
Trump will be a “great” president, 12 percent of voters say; 30 percent say he will be a “good” president; 20 percent say he will be “not so good” and 32 percent say he will be “bad.”
The measures of Trump’s personal qualities all are more negative than they were in a November 22 Quinnipiac University poll:
53 – 39 percent that he is not honest, compared to 52 – 42 percent November 22;
49 – 44 percent that he has good leadership skills, compared to 56 – 38 percent;
52 – 44 percent that he does not care about average Americans, compared to 51 – 45 percent who said he did care;
62 – 33 percent that he is not level-headed, compared to 57 – 38 percent;
71 – 25 percent that he is a strong person, compared to 74 – 23 percent;
68 – 27 percent that he is intelligent, compared to 74 – 21 percent
Let’s not mention the fact that President Obama even leaves the White House more popular and well-liked than President-elect Donald Trump.
In terms of Trump’s cabinet picks and administration, a plurality of those polled – 40 percent – said they disapprove of Trump’s appointments, while 30 percent approve of them. Despite that, 28 percent said they don’t know enough to form an opinion.
Trump’s approval ratings will only drop the more he tweets, dodges questions, denies every Russian accusation, and withholds his tax returns. Americans are just starting to realize how much of a mistake they really made.
