The poll results were released on Tuesday and revealed that voters disapprove of President Donald Trump's performance 58 to 35 percent. That's a dip from 43 percent who said he was fit versus 55 percent who thought he wasn't in an October 11 poll by the university, and 42 percent who thought so versus 56 percent who didn't think so in a September 27 poll.
However, Trump, in a Twitter comment, cited Monday's result from the Republican-leaning Rasmussen Reports, which showed him at a 53-46 negative standing and attacked mainstream national news outlets for citing the polls with his approval ratings in the 30-percent range. Thirty-one percent of independents said they approve.
Quinnipiac pollster Tim Malloy said, "President Donald Trump returns from his big Asia trip to find numbers frozen in the negative".
According to the phone survey of 500 likely voters, 30 percent say they "strongly approve of the way the president is performing", while 44 percent say they "strongly disapprove". "Ominously, there is creeping slippage in (Trump's political) base".
