HAMDEN, Conn. (WTNH) The Quinnipiac University National Poll has released their recent findings on president Barack Obama and president-elect Donald Trump.
According to their polls, American voters have given Obama his highest approval rating in seven years with 55-39 percent voters approving of the job he has done. The same voters disapproved of way that Trump has been handling the position 51-37 percent. Polling of these same voters also found that 45% of voters believe that Trump will be a worst president, 34% saying he will be a better president, and 15 % saying he will do about the same.
However, the polling center has found that 52-43 percent of Americans are optimistic about the next four years with Trump serving in the Oval Office with 47-31 percent believing that he will help improve the economy.
President Barack Obama leaves the White House a lot more popular than Donald Trump is as he crosses the threshold and saddles up for the most important job in the world, said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll. President-elect Trump gets points for strength and intelligence, but voters feelings about his personality traits, empathy, leadership and level-headedness, are headed south.
In terms of Trumps presence on social media, people who were polled believed that he should close his twitter. In fact 71-26 percent of voters ages 18 to 34, say that Trump she close his account now that he will become president.
Connecticut governor Malloy had been adamant that Trump should delete his account saying 140 characters may not be enough to tell Donald Trump just how much Americans want him to knock off the tweeting.
I am all heart broken.
Oh yes. Quinnipiac. Another fake news site that said Hillary was going to win.
Fake news comes from fake polls.
Fake poll. Fake news.
There should be a laugh track attached to this tripe.
Get used to it. This is going to be their MO for the next four years.
Oh My! How worrisome! ~sarc
I thought the topic of polls was settled BS.
How about a poll with breakdown of where these people get their news from? Fake news like CNN?
I mentioned to someone recently that Quinnipiac was very Liberal. They quickly corrected me: “Oh, no! Quinnipiac is very respected, and very objective!”
They actually meant it seriously. I just shrugged. No use arguing.
Patent Bullshiit. Liars poll and pollers lie.
Yeah but enough voters in enough states liked Trump well enough to give him the win in the Electoral College, which is the only win that matters.
They can take their fake polls and shove them where the sun don’t shine.
also found that 45% of voters believe that Trump will be a worst president, 34% saying he will be a better president, and 15 % saying he will do about the same................. Oracles and soothsayers? Who know what the cards hold? He isn’t in the oval office, and everyone seems to know his future? !!!! AMAZING!!!!
Well that’s it, Trump will never get elected now.
