Trump Still a Working-Class Hero, Democratic Poll Shows

Quinnipiac recorded two favorable assessments of Trump's performance: almost two out of three voters (58 to 39 percent) said the president is "a strong person" and, similarly (55 to 42 percent), they said they believe he is intelligent.

New U.S. public-opinion surveys show that President Donald Trump's approval ratings, already the lowest ever for an American president early in his White House tenure, are continuing to fall.

The June 28 national poll found US voters reject GOP health plan more than 3-1; voters support gun background checks 94-5 percent.

The July 31 New York City poll found Mayor de Blasio's approval rating plunges; but he still has a big lead over other challengers.

In addition to those figures, 54 percent of voters surveyed say they're embarrassed by Trump compared to the 26 percent that say that they feel proud. Forty-six percent of voters said more acceptance of transgender people would be "a good thing for the country", 14 percent said it would be "a bad thing", and 39 percent said it would make little difference difference.

Additionally, an overwhelming number of Americans - 89 percent - believe that employer discrimination based on sexual orientation should be illegal.

On top of that, 50% of all respondents said they strongly disapprove of Trump while just 25% said they strongly approve. A majority of all respondents, 59 percent, disapproved of the way Democrats in Congress are handling the issue.

"They put on uniforms and face the same risks as their brothers and sisters in arms for little reward other than protecting their country", said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

Another 40 percent said repeal parts of Obamacare and 33 percent of voters said don't repeal any of it. Forty-eight percent had an unfavorable view of the Democratic Party overall, but 64 percent viewed the Republican Party unfavorably. "The message: Start over and do it right".

The sample of 1,500 individuals has a margin of error of 2.5 percentage points.

According to FiveThirtyEight's calculations, an average of the most recent polls show that his strong disapproval rating has increased more than 3 percent from May - from 44.1 percent to 47.4 percent. Read the full results here.
