The new numbers from the eight polls mark the president's lowest approval rating in six months. Independent voters surveyed in the poll broke for Republicans, giving the party a 5-point lead over Democrats among unaffiliated voters. Further, independent voters back Democrats over Republicans by 50-35 percent, according to the poll.
As Newsweek reports, when asked if they believed the 45th president is intelligent, just 51 percent answered that they do, while 42 percent answered that they did not.
A mere 51 percent of voters believe President Donald Trump is intelligent, a new low for a president now facing accusations of mismanagement and a lack of fitness to serve from damning books and even a people within his administration, according to a new poll released Monday.
The weekly poll from Gallup found Trump's overall approval slightly higher at 40 percent.
Instead, the president is repeatedly muddling that message with easily debunked falsehoods or hyperbole about the state of the economy while pressing on with unpopular trade wars that frustrate establishment Republicans and business groups anxious about price increases.
Americans are happy with the economy, according to two polls released Monday.
Trump's decreasing popularity with voters outside of the Republican Party can have a major effect in the results of the upcoming midterm elections.
A new Quinnipiac University poll puts Trump's job approval rating at 38 percent, with 54 percent disapproving, a drop of 3 percentage points from Trump's 41 percent approval number on August 14.
There might be several reasons, including many controversies, as to why the poll percent has dropped.
The poll also showed the bind Mr. Trump is in. The Real Clear Politics average this week puts Democrats ahead of Republicans by a margin of 47 percent to 39 percent.
