More very bad news for Trump: His poll numbers just hit a bunch of new lows

President Trump is dealing with a budding scandal after firing FBI Director James B. Comey on Tuesday.

But even before that, he appears to have hit a new low with the American people.

A new poll from Quinnipiac University shows Trump's disapproval rating rising to 58 percent a new high in Quinnipiac's regular polling and the highest in a high-quality, non-tracking poll since his inauguration. Just 36 percent approved of Trump's job performance.


...
The Quinnipiac poll also shows the president's favorable rating more of a personal measure than a job measure dropping to a new low of 35 percent. The percentage of Americans who strongly approve of him is tied for an all-time low at 25 percent. And the percentage who strongly disapprove has reached an all-time high of 51 percent.

Trump also has his worst numbers to date across 10 Q polls since the 2016 election on the following measures:

Honesty: 33 percent say he is
Good leadership skills: 56 percent say he doesn't have them
Caring about average people: 59 percent say he doesn't
Being levelheaded: Voters say 66-29 percent that he's not (unlike the other numbers here, this is tied for all-time worst, not setting a new one)
Being intelligent: Voters say 56-41 percent that he is
Sharing your values: Voters say 64-32 percent that he doesn't
How he has treated the news media: Voters disapprove 65-31 percent
Whether people trust him or the media more for the truth: 57 percent media, 31 percent Trump (even 17 percent of Republicans pick the media over their president)
Interestingly, the reason the numbers have ticked down appears to be the group that elected Trump in the first place: white, working-class voters. Whites without college degrees approved of Trump 57 percent to 38 percent in the mid-April Q poll and 51-39 percent in late March/early May; today they are split, with 47 percent approving and 46 percent disapproving.

Buyers remorse is setting in bigly.

1. His numbers sucked during the whole election cycle and he still won

In the end people who don't like him still vote for him for some reason

2. Polls Mean SHIT

 

Why should he care? "W" had #'s in the 20's I believe, towards the end. It hardly matters.

Perhaps these dipshits who view him unfavorably shouldn't have voted for him 6 months ago.

6. Important words: "towards the end."

Trump has been in office fewer than four months.
