I have a few choice words I use to describe America’s Mango Maniac-in-Chief, but my keyboard just ran out of f*cks. I’m sure you have your own words, too.
And now we know the first three words that come to voters’ minds when they hear the name Trump, according to the latest Quinnipiac Poll published Wednesday:
The word “president” came in sixth — below the word “unqualified.”
As The Week reports:
Most of the words, though, were pretty unflattering. Yes, “strong” and “businessman” made the list, but so did “ignorant,” “bully,” “narcissist,” and “a–hole.” The list only recorded words that were mentioned by five or more respondents, but that allowed descriptors like “blowhard,” “evil,” and “greedy” to eke in — alongside the more flattering “negotiator” and “patriot.”
Other key highlights of the poll include:
The president is losing support among independent voters and groups which are important parts of his base. Approval ratings are:
Negative 29-63 percent among independent voters, down from a negative 38 – 56 percent April 19;
A split among white voters with no college degree, as 47 percent approve and 46 percent disapprove, compared to a 57-38 percent approval April 19;
White men go from a 53-41 percent approval April 19 to a split today with 48 percent approving and 46 percent disapproving.
American voters’ opinions of several of Trump’s personal qualities are down:
61-33 percent that he is not honest, compared to 58-37 percent April 19;
56-41 percent that he does not have good leadership skills, little change;
59-38 percent that he does not care about average Americans, compared to 57-42 percent April 19;
66-29 percent that he is not level-headed, compared to 63-33 percent last month;
62-35 percent that he is a strong person, little change;
56-41 percent that he is intelligent, compared to 58-38 percent;
64-32 percent that he does not share their values, compared to 61-35 percent.
By a 54-38 percent margin, American voters want the Democratic Party to win control of the U.S. House of Representatives. This is the widest margin ever measured for this question in a Quinnipiac University poll, exceeding a 5 percentage point margin for Republicans in 2013.
If Democrats had won control of the U.S. Senate in the 2016 elections, the country would be in a better place than it is now, 41 percent of voters say, while 27 percent say it would be in a worse place and 30 percent say it would be the same.
American voters dislike Democrats less than they dislike Republicans:
Voters disapprove 71-22 percent of the way Republicans in Congress do their job.
“There is no way to spin or sugarcoat these sagging numbers,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.
The Quinnipiac University poll surveyed 1,078 voters nationwide with a margin of error of +/- 3 percentage points. Live interviewers call landlines and cell phones.
The polling was directed by Douglas Schwartz, Ph.D., who conducts public opinion surveys in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Florida, Ohio, Virginia, Iowa, Colorado and the nation as a public service and for research.
