National (US) Poll – January 10, 2018 – Trump Is Intelligent, But Not Level Headed ..
- Bright Economic Outlook – With Credit to Obama (The good numbers)
A total of 66 percent of American voters say the nation’s economy is “excellent” or “good,” up from 63 percent December 19 and the highest positive rating for the economy since the Quinnipiac University Poll first asked this question in 2001. Another 33 percent say the economy is “not so good” or “poor.”
“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.”
“But 49 percent of voters say former President Barack Obama is more responsible for the state of the economy, while 40 percent say Trump is more responsible.”
“A total of 73 percent of voters say their personal financial situation is “excellent” or “good,” while 26 percent say “not so good” or “poor.”
“Only 24 percent of voters say Trump policies are helping their personal financial situation, while 26 percent say his policies are hurting them and 47 percent say his policies are not making a difference.”
Excerpts from 1/10/18 Newsweek’s analysis of the 1/10/18 Quinnipiac University Poll:
“He gets very low grades on character traits—in fact, they’re going south,” Malloy said.
A clear majority of respondents, 69 percent compared with 29 percent, said Trump was not level-headed. Fifty-seven percent said he was not fit to serve as president compared with just 40 percent who deemed him up to the task. Most voters, 60 percent compared with 38 percent, said the real estate magnate does not have good leadership skills.
Voters also felt that Trump doesn’t care about average Americans by a margin of 59 to 38. That schism was even greater when asked if Trump shared their values, with voters answering 66 to 32 that he does not.
“These are terrible numbers,” Malloy said.
“This has been a president of breaking news and course changes and some discord. And some would say—not us—a presidency of chaos,” he said.
“Some people, in fact, have said just that. In journalist Michael Wolff’s new explosive tell-all book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, former White House deputy chief of staff Katie Walsh said that was how the White House’s since-ousted chief strategist Steve Bannon liked things. “Chaos was Steve’s strategy” Walsh is quoted saying in the book.”
“These situations have found their way into polling,” Malloy said.”
“Pollsters also asked the 1,106 respondents to describe Trump’s first year in office in their own words, giving them the opportunity to speak freely rather than select from a multiple choice option. The word “disaster,” showed up most often, 69 times, followed by “chaotic,” 62 times. That’s nearly twice as many times as the words “successful” (44) and “great” (27) appeared. Entries also included neutral words like “interesting” and “different.”
“Of the 43 words used at least five times, 25 words are negative, 10 are positive, and eight are neutral,” read a press release from Quinnipiac University.”
“Even the positive responses in the latest Quinnipiac poll are problematic for Trump.”
“The silver lining in this, if you’re the White House, is 66 percent said the nation’s economy is excellent or good,” Malloy added. That’s up from a December 19, 2017, Quinnipiac poll when 63 percent of voters surveyed described the nation’s economy is excellent or good.
“There’s a positive trend and it’s happening under this administration, so that’s something they can hang their hat on,” Malloy said.
“However, the White House will have to share the glory with Trump’s predecessor. Almost half, 49 percent, credit former President Barack Obama with the economic growth. Just 40 percent of respondents said Trump was more responsible.”
“The pollsters also compared Trump’s first-year approval rating to Obama’s.”
“The country was split in January 2010, with 45 percent approving of Obama and 45 percent disapproving. “This after a very strong start,” Malloy noted. The majority of Americans, by a margin of 59 to 25, approved of Obama in the first few months of his presidency in 2009.”
“President Obama lost ground, too, but no one’s been this low at this point,” Malloy said of Trump’s 36 percent approval rating.”
“Pollsters spoke with voters nationwide from January 5 to 9 by phone for the survey. Its margin of error is 3.6 percentage points.”
Excerpts from 1/10/18 USA Today’a analysis by Jessica Estepa:
“The Quinnipiac University National Poll found that 53% believe the president is intelligent, compared to 44% who believe he is not. That’s part of an overall downward trend over the past year, according to Quinnipiac. In January 2017, prior to his inauguration, 68% of voters said the president was intelligent, while 27% said he was not.”
“Further, 69% of voters said they didn’t believe the president was level-headed, while 28% said he was. The number of voters saying they didn’t think the president was level-headed was up from January 2017, when 62% said they didn’t think the president was level-headed and 33% said he was.”
“The new numbers were released days after the president proclaimed that he was intelligent, in the wake of a new tell-all book that claimed aides were unsure of his mental capacities. The White House has disavowed the book.”
“Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart,” Trump tweeted on Saturday, the day after the book, Fire and Fury, was released. He also said he was a “very stable genius.”
The poll also asked voters to grade the president’s first year in office:
- 39% gave him an F
- 17% gave him a D
- 16% gave him an A
- 16% gave him a B
- 11% gave him a C
