  • Majority think Trump administration is running chaotically

The nationwide poll of 1,125 voters was taken from July 27 to August 1; it has a margin of error of 3.4 percentage points.

The president's approval ratings in the conservative-leaning Rasmussen poll generally have been higher than in other polls. Eighty percent of voters surveyed said they disapprove of the way Republicans are handling the issue, while 59 percent said Democrats are handling things the wrong way.

Military households approved of transgender people serving in the military 55 percent to 39 percent, according to the poll.

The July 12 New York State poll found Gov. Cuomo's approval drops to near record low; Cuomo gets low grades for handling transit.

"Voters say a soldier is a soldier, no matter what his/her gender identity is", Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac poll, said in a statement released with the survey results.

This goes with a separate poll by Reuters and Ipsos from last week, which found that 58 percent of U.S. adults agree trans people should be allowed to serve in the military, while 27 percent disagreed.

On top of that, 50% of all respondents said they strongly disapprove of Trump while just 25% said they strongly approve.

Quinnipiac University said Wednesday that Americans, by a 61-to-33 percent margin, disapprove of Trump's performance six months into his four-year term in the White House.

It found that 62% disapprove of Donald Trump, well ahead of the 38% who approve of his performance, giving him a net approval rating of -24%.

To put the poll into context, Trump's Rasmussen disproval figure is his highest since the start of his presidency.

Known for its exactness and thoroughness, the Quinnipiac poll is featured regularly in The New York Times, The Washington Post, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal and on national network news broadcasts. The Quinnipiac poll was also called "the standout performer" by City and State for the most accurate prediction in the Democratic primary for New York City mayor in 2013. The polls are conducted at the Polling Institute on West Woods Road, close to the Mount Carmel and York Hill Campuses.
