American Voters Favor Dems by 14 Points

American Voters Favor Dems by 14 Points

The new numbers from the eight polls mark the president's lowest approval rating in six months.

Quinnipiac surveyed 1,038 voters from September 6 to 9 for the poll, which had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.7 percentage points. Further, independent voters back Democrats over Republicans by 50-35 percent, according to the poll.

In an Economist-YouGov poll released Wednesday, 34 percent of US adults said they wanted to see Democrats retake control of the House, while another 32 percent said they wanted Republicans to maintain control of the chamber. The poll from almost two years ago was taken less than two weeks after Trump defeated Hillary Clinton. Trump approval saw an even bigger slump in CNN/SRSS's poll, hitting 36 percent, from 42 percent in August.

Each book describes a White House in chaos and Trump aides shielding the president from information in efforts to curb potentially risky policies or actions. Watergate reporter Bob Woodward published a book recently that depicted the current chaos in the White House as well.

"American voters don't want Congress to tell President Donald Trump, 'You're fired!' by serving him with articles of impeachment", Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, said.

Trump's decreasing popularity with voters outside of the Republican Party can have a major effect in the results of the upcoming midterm elections.

This, together with Trump choosing Brett Kavanaugh, an unpopular candidate, as Supreme Court nominee, might make it hard for the administration to project a confident image, which might be reflected in the November polls, Vox reported.

But according to Quinnipiac's most recent poll, 70 percent of respondents labeled the economy as "excellent" or "good", which has allowed Trump to hold on to his base of Republicans.
