Trump touts a poll that's bad for him

"Trump's policies are helping the nation's economy, 37 percent of voters say, as 29 percent say his policies are hurting the economy and 30 percent say these policies are not making much difference", the Quinnipiac news release says.

The president has only drawn attention to one of the worst polls for him yet.

"It's been a very tough freshman year for President Donald Trump by any measure", said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac poll. Poll takers called people at both landline and mobile phone numbers.

Sixty-three percent of respondents say he is not honest; 59 percent say he does not have good leadership skills; and 59 percent said he does not care about average Americans.

The Quinnipiac University Poll conducts nationwide public opinion surveys, and statewide polls in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Florida, Ohio, Virginia, Iowa and Colorado as a public service and for research.

His major concern was finding out whether the animal was alive or dead when it was screwed to the pole. Australia's koala population is in steep decline due to receding habitats and numerous bush fires.

The poll says that 51 percent of Americans answered that Democrats should not impeach the president if they regain the House in the midterm elections in 2018.

While more than half, 53 percent, of respondents considered Trump intelligent, 69 percent said he is not level-headed and 57 percent believe he is not fit to serve as president.

Trump's approval rating is at 36 percent, the same approval rating he had on January 26 in Quinnipiac's first poll after his inauguration.

Voters were also asked to describe the first year of the president in open-ended questions and 25 words were negative in nature.
