Trump's approval rating fell to 35 percent, according to the poll, with 55 percent of Americans disapproving of his job performance. Trump's approval rating among Republicans fell from 91 percent in June to 79 percent now. 

“While Republicans are still largely in Trump’s corner, the cautionary tale for the president lies in the softening of support at his base,” says Dr. Lee M. Miringoff, Director of The Marist College Institute for Public Opinion. “Since his numbers among Democrats and independents are weak, a crack among his most ardent supporters is something Trump can ill afford.”

Other results found that 60 percent of Americans view Trump unfavorably, 60 percent do not believe he is honest and trustworthy, 75 percent think he is temperamental.

When it came to his Twitter feed, 72 percent of Americans said they think it is reckless and distracting.
