Over half of Americans believe that Trump is unfit to be President

Posted September 30, 2017

A majority of American voters do not believe that Donald Trump is fit to serve as president, according to a new poll from Quinnipiac University.

In addition, 70 percent of the voters who participated in the poll said that Trump's recent comments regarding North Korea, which include vowing to "totally destroy" the country and calling North Korean leader Kim Jong-un "Little Rocket Man", are not helpful.

African-American voters tend to back Democrats and Hillary Clinton won 88 percent of the black vote in the November 2016 election while Trump picked up just eight percent, according to exit polls.

69% of voters want Trump to give up his Twitter account, which he has used in recent days to castigate professional athletes from the National Basketball Association and NFL, as well as his political opponents.

"There is uneasiness among Americans about Trump's ability to keep them safe", Democratic pollster Chris Anderson, who conducts the Fox News poll along with Republican Daron Shaw, told Fox News.

Breaking down the data, there was a profound partisan and gender split over Trump's fitness for office.


Some 56 percent of voters say things are "going to hell in a handbasket". It isn't just that most Americans don't approve of the job he's doing, a solid majority says he isn't even fit to be president and a slim majority even says they're embarrassed about it. Ninety-four percent of Democrats feel Trump is not fit to be President, Independents doubt his fitness by a 57-40 percent margin.

"A divider, responsible for the deepening chasm of racial discord", said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University poll of 1,412 voters nationwide.

59% of respondents said that Trump is not honest.

On Sept. 22, Trump called for NFL team owners to fire players who kneeled during the national anthem, The Guardian reports.

One more message to Trump: Shut up! 55 percent of the voters said that they disapprove of Trump's conduct regarding North Korea, an increase of 10 percent from July and 5 percent from August. Those are absolutely devastating results for any president, but especially this early in his term and with the Republican-led Congress unable to pass any legislation that might help Trump's image.

Not surprising, perhaps, considering that the real estate tycoon launched his political career by questioning whether Barack Obama, America's first black president, was born in the United States.
