Meanwhile, 53 percent believe that he is dishonest, 62 percent believe that he does not have a good temperament and 52 percent believe that he does have empathy for average Americans.
Donald Trump has never been a popular political figure, but the notion of beginning his presidency by taking healthcare away from almost 30 million Americans has come back to haunt him. Trump's net favorability rating of negative 14 percentage points is a notable comedown from a Quinnipiac poll released on November 22, when 44 percent of respondents of respondents viewed him favorably while 46 percent viewed him unfavorably.
Just 37 percent give a thumbs-up to Trump's transition work while 51 percent disapprove of the job he is doing. Thirty percent said he will be a good president, and 12 percent said he would be a great president.
Trump was a strong person after the election: 74 percent.
He did not care about the Americans in November: 51 percent.
Researchers also found Trump's "personal qualities" are now viewed much more negatively than they were when the poll was last conducted in late November.
According to a survey of almost 1,000 USA adults released today by Quinnipiac University, 64 percent said they think the president-elect should give up his 19.4 million followers on the platform when he becomes president. Toward the bottom, Quinnipiac asked respondents whether they thought Trump's behavior since the election made them feel better or worse about him. By a two-to-one margin -- highest among young people - Americans say Trump should shut down his Twitter account. Trump squeaked his way into the White House with a very narrow win in which he got 46 percent of the vote, won the states he needed to by less than a point, and lost the national popular vote, as voters told pollsters said they had huge reservations about him. And that's bad news for Trump's political mandate 10 days before he's sworn in.
