Quinnipiac Poll: Trump is intelligent but not level headed

Quinnipiac Poll: Trump is intelligent but not level headed

By contrast, 49 percent of voters believe former President Barack Obama was more responsible than Trump for America's current economic conditions; only 40 percent said Trump deserved more credit. Poll takers called people at both landline and mobile phone numbers.

The poll was conducted between January 5 and January 9 and asked just over 1,100 voters how they would sum up the state of the economy.

Seventy-three percent of voters also believed their personal financial situation was "excellent" or "good" and 26 percent said theirs was "not so good" or "poor". The university did note that it was the highest positive rating for the economy since Quinnipiac first began to poll Americans about the topic in 2001.

"Looking at immigration, voters insist emphatically, 'Don't dash the dream.' Voters say that immigrants who were brought here as kids should be allowed to live out their adult lives here as citizens", said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac poll.




It came just days after Trump made the unexpected declaration that he is "a very stable genius" following the publication of a new book that says, among other sensational things, Trump's top advisors regularly discuss his mental health and stability, and the possibility of using a constitutional amendment to oust him from office. When asked if Trump is honest, 63 percent said he is not.

The poll went on to ask voters to grade Trump's first year in office.

Voters said by a margin of 69-28 percent that Trump is not level-headed and 57 percent of voters said he is not fit to serve as president.
