American Voters Have Few Kind Words For Trump, Quinnipiac University National Poll Finds


In trying to find the right word for President Donald Trump, American voters are overwhelmingly negative, as 53 voters (not percent) say "idiot" is the first word that comes to mind when they think of the president, followed by 44 voters who say "liar" and 36 voters who say "incompetent," according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today.

In the same open-ended question, allowing for any answer, 35 voters say "leader," with 35 voters saying "strong," 26 voters saying "a**hole," 21 voters saying "great," 19 voters saying "moron," 18 voters saying "arrogant" and 17 voters saying "disgusting," the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds. Of the 48 words used by five or more voters, 30 words are negative.

Voters disapprove 57 - 37 percent of the job President Trump is doing, consistent with findings for the last four months. Trump has hit or topped the 40 percent approval mark four times since he was inaugurated. His highest approval, 42 percent, was in February.

The Russian government tried to influence the 2016 presidential election, voters say 73 - 22 percent, including Republicans by a narrow 50 - 45 percent.

Voters say 41 - 28 percent this interference changed the outcome of the election.

And American voters say 57 - 38 percent Trump has attempted to "derail or obstruct the investigation into the Russian interference in the 2016 election." By a narrow 48 - 44 percent, American voters say Trump did not collude with the Russian government to influence the election, but voters say 52 - 40 percent that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government.


From December 6 - 11, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,211 voters nationwide with a margin of error of +/- 3.5 percentage points, including the design effect. Live interviewers call landlines and cell phones.
