Quinnipiac Poll: Trump is intelligent but not level headed


Almost 4 in 10 US voters gave President Donald Trump a failing grade for his first year in office, with "disaster" and "chaotic" the words most used to describe his first 12 months in the White House.

"President Trump can hang his hat on the economy, but must share the hat rack with President Barack Obama, as two-thirds of the country see the economic picture as excellent or good", Quinnipiac University Poll assistant director Tim Malloy said in a statement.

More damning, however, Quinnipac said 49 percent of voters credit former President Barack Obama, not Trump, for the success.

The wealthy will benefit most from this plan, 66 percent of voters believe, while 22 percent say the middle class will benefit most and 4 percent say low income people will benefit most.

Even though 66 percent of American voters believe the economy is either "excellent" or "good", only 37 percent believe that Trump's policies are helping the economy.

Sixty-six percent is the highest positive rating for the economy since Quinnipiac University began asking the question in 2001.

Asked to grade Trump's first year in office, 43 percent gave Trump an A, B or C. Thirty-nine percent gave him an F, while 17 percent gave him a D.

Even worse, an incredible 57 percent of respondents said Trump is "not fit for office" and 69 percent said he isn't "level-headed".

The poll was conducted just after the release of Fire and Fury, the highly critical, tell-all book about Trump's first year in office, which depicts a chaotic White House and has been roundly denounced by the Trump administration.
