Majority says Trump not 'fit to serve as president'

Majority says Trump not 'fit to serve as president' Majority says Trump not 'fit to serve as president'

The exception, according to Quinnipiac researchers, is that a considerable majority of Republican voters surveyed, 84 percent, said he is fit for the office.

American men were equally split on the question - 49-49 - while women believed by a 63-35 margin that Trump is not fit to be president. Eighty-four percent of Republicans said he is fit while 14 percent said he is not. 60 percent of Hispanic voters said Trump was not up to the job while 40 percent said he was. But it's also possible that a declining share of voters identify as Republicans but that those who do, by and large, live in a Fox News-created political universe in which Trump is just the best.

The Quinnipiac University Poll found that 62 percent of voters disapproved of how Trump was handling race relations in America while 32 percent approved. (Some hope that Trump is like a high fever that will pass, leaving the patient back to being his old self; I think that's unlikely, but it'd be nice if the fever theory turns out to be correct.) You can change a president or a presidential candidate but can you change a party's composition?

The numbers keep getting worse for President Donald Trump. Fifty-seven percent of those surveyed said they disapprove of the job Trump is doing as president with 36 percent saying they approved.

Meanwhile, 41 percent of the Latinos polled said immigration reform and the passage of the Dream Act is among one of the most important issues facing the country as a whole that Congress and the USA president should address.

Overall, 56% of voters say Trump is not fit to serve as president.

"There is no upside. That is the inescapable characterization of President Trump from voters who see race relations deteriorating on his watch". "American voters disapprove 78-15 percent of the job Republicans in Congress are doing, worse than their 70-25 percent disapproval in a June 29 Quinnipiac University poll".

Gunman opens fire at Nashville-area church, killing at least one
At some point during the confrontation, authorities say the gunman then shot himself, but it's unclear if it was intentional. One man who confronted the shooter while inside the church was violently pistol whipped, Aaron said .

67% say he isn't level-headed.

The July 12 New York State poll found Gov. Cuomo's approval drops to near record low; Cuomo gets low grades for handling transit.

The personal rtings of Trump could not be more dismal.

In dealing with immigrants who want to move to the US, 56 percent said the government's top priority should be reforming current immigration laws to better reflect the country's needs.

Good marks? A majority feel he is intelligent and a strong person.

The September 19 Virginia poll found Dem tops 50 percent, up 10 points in governor's race; Trump has big disapproval rating.
