The president's approval rating in the poll is down from 42 percent in March and 35 percent in June, AP-NORC said.

Trump's job approval rating in the poll is lower than many released recently.

"The polls that failed to detect the full strength of President Trump on Election Day continue to underestimate the president's support for the job he is doing, paying way too much attention to the Twitter wars and ignoring the public support for numerous actions he is undertaking", wrote Mark Penn, a pollster for former President Bill Clinton and chief strategist for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.

According to the poll, 55 percent of voters now say Trump is not fit to serve as president, compared to 56 percent two weeks ago.

American voters are divided on Trump's handling of the economy, as 48 percent approve and 46 percent disapprove.

"After a turbulent stretch of heartbreaking tragedies, President Donald Trump is still deep in negative territory", Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, said in the press release.

Seventy-three percent of voters said their personal financial situation was "excellent" or "good".

Sixty-four percent of Americans said the president understands their needs "not very well" or "not very well at all".

However, 72% of voters are either "somewhat dissatisfied" or "very dissatisfied", with the country's direction overall.

56 - 40 percent that he is intelligent.

While 58 percent of those polled by Quinnipiac University said the president's remarks are inappropriate, 34 percent said they think his comments were proper.
