Voters Wary of Trump, Confident in Economy

More voters in the poll said Obama's policies led to the high-performing economy while 40% said Trump deserves credit

The president has only drawn attention to one of the worst polls for him yet. "A" and "B" received 16 percent each with 11 percent giving Trump a "C".

While nearly two-thirds of USA voters, 66 percent, described the nation's economy as good or excellent - the highest percentage in Quinnipiac polls going back to 2001 - nearly half of them, 49 percent, gave the credit to former President Barack Obama, while 40 percent credited Trump.

A new Quinnipiac University poll gave the president a negative job approval rating including some of lowest scores since Inauguration day in a recent poll on Wednesday.

The Quinnipiac Poll showed two-thirds of Americans believe the country's economy is "excellent" or "good", but voters where split over who is responsible for the economic growth, with 49 percent saying former President Barack Obama is more responsible and 40 percent saying Trump had more to do with it.

63 percent of voters believe the president "is not honest". Less frequently used words to describe his first year in office were; "successful", "good", and "interesting". It was 36% to 44% a year ago.

Meanwhile, 33 percent said they saw the economy as "not so good" or "poor".

Even worse, an incredible 57 percent of respondents said Trump is "not fit for office" and 69 percent said he isn't "level-headed".

Trump on Saturday sent a flurry of tweets in defense of his intelligence and fitness for office, wherein he brandished his personal successes to support his assertion that he's a "very stable genius".

Quinnipiac conducted its poll surveying 1,106 American voters from January 5 to 9.
