Voters Wary of Trump, Confident in Economy

Trump touts poll showing voters think the U.S. economy is “good” — but there’s a catch

A new poll gave President Trump several pieces of bad news on Wednesday night: After the Trump first year, 39 percent of Americans would give his presidency a failing grade, while a large majority think he is dishonest, lacks leadership skills and is unfit to serve as president.

"Looking at immigration, voters insist emphatically, 'Don't dash the dream.' Voters say that immigrants who were brought here as kids should be allowed to live out their adult lives here as citizens", said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac poll.

Quinnipiac said the poll surveyed 1,106 voters nationwide and had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.6 percentage points. "That is the highest number ever recorded by this poll", he wrote on Twitter. It was 36% to 44% a year ago.

Sixty-nine percent of respondents said Trump is not levelheaded, while 28 percent disagreed.

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.

Seventy-three percent of voters also believed their personal financial situation was "excellent" or "good" and 26 percent said theirs was "not so good" or "poor".

Another 7 percent say they should stay but not become citizens - while only 11 percent say they should get the boot. Sixty-five percent said Trump does not share their values.

Thirty-seven percent of respondents said Trump's policies are helping the nation's economy, while 29 percent said he is hurting the economy, and 30 percent said the administration's policies are not making a difference.
