Not only does a clear majority of Americans not approve of Trump's job performance, but even more don't like him or his personal traits: He's not levelheaded, he's not honest, he's not a good leader, and he doesn't care about average Americans. His disapproval rating, meanwhile, climbed to 60%, which is unheard of for a president who's only been in office for six months. Today, Gallup shows Trump's disapproval rating climbing to a new high of 60 percent.
Because of their stalwart support of Trump, especially as opposed to their college-graduate peers, whites without college degrees (or "blue-collar whites" or "working-class whites") became an obsession during the presidential election.
Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, said that "profound embarrassment" over his performance in office and "deepening concern" over his level-headedness were his two major concerns from the poll findings. White men are divided 47 - 48 percent and Republicans approve 76 - 17 percent. Even Trump's job-approval rating is a respectable 52 percent with the demographic in these swing districts.

The Spain worldwide was thought to be on the cusp of a move to Madrid in 2015 before a deal fell through on La Liga's deadline day. "He was never on my list", Mourinho said of the Welsh attacker.
The July 12 New York State poll found Gov. Cuomo's approval drops to near record low; Cuomo gets low grades for handling transit. It pointed out that 18 other countries - including Australia, Canada, Israel, and the United Kingdom - allow transgender people to serve openly in the military with "little or no impact on unit cohesion, operational effectiveness, or readiness".
A Quinnipiac University national poll released Thursday found that 68% of American voters think that transgender people should be allowed to serve.
Quinnipiac surveyed 1,125 voters nationwide from July 27 to August 1 with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percent. Read the full results here.
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.
The poll of 1,125 voters was conducted July 27-Aug.
