Trump Has Dismal Job Approval And Honesty Numbers
Donald Trump is still unable to convince a majority of Americans that he is doing a good job as their president. In fact, the percentage who disapprove of the job he's doing has grown. Only 37% of the public now thinks he's doing a good job, while a significant majority (56%) say he's not doing a good job -- a difference of 19 points.
One reason for this (other than his despicable policies) could be that his incessant lying seems to be catching up with him. Last November, about 52% thought he was dishonest. Currently, about 60% think he is dishonest -- a growth of 8 points. Only about a third of the public (35%) say he is an honest person. Those are mostly Republicans. I think they know he is a liar, but just aren't yet ready to admit it publicly (afraid it will hurt their party).
The charts shown hear reflect the results of a new Quinnipiac University Poll -- done between March 16th and 21st of a random national sample of 1,056 voters, with a 3 point margin of error.
