President Donald Trump’s approval has hit a new low, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll.
The poll found 61 percent of those surveyed disapprove of the job Trump is doing, while 33 percent approve. The president’s disapproval jumped six points since Quinnipiac’s last poll on June 29.
A particularly troubling sign for the president is that, for the first time, his approval among white voters without a college degree has hit a net negative, according to the poll released Wednesday. Fifty percent of that key voting bloc that helped propel the real estate mogul to the White House now say they are unhappy with the president and 43 percent approve.
Trump's disapproval rating has been on the rise since taking office in January, when 44 percent said they disapprove of the newly inaugurated leader. But his administration has been largely engulfed in chaos, high-profile departures, and the continuing investigations into Russia’s possible link to his presidential campaign.
Fifty-seven percent of respondents said they think Trump is abusing the office of the presidency and 60 percent say they believe Trump thinks he is above the law. A whopping 71 percent also said he is not level-headed, the poll found.
Voting opinions on Trump’s qualities like honesty, leadership and intelligence also hit new lows.
More than 60 percent of Americans believe Russia interfered in the 2016 election, an assessment the president has at times called into question despite agreement from the U.S. intelligence community.
