An array of surveys of voter approval ratings for U.S. President Donald Trump continue to be mired in the 30 percent range, but he contended Tuesday that an outlier poll with a higher mark proves the others are wrong.

The latest figures include 28% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 45% who Strongly Disapprove.

While 86 percent of self-identified Republicans said Trump is fit to serve, an overwhelming 93 percent of Democrats said the opposite. Thirty-one percent of independents said they approve.

"Must feel like Groundhog Day in Trumpland", said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

As of Monday, the commander in chief has a 46 percent approval rating among likely USA voters-a number Trump was keen to share with his followers. "Ominously, there is creeping slippage in (Trump's political) base".

For more on the poll's results, head here. But the same poll, conducted by Rasmussen Reports, shows 53 percent disapprove. "#FakeNews likes to say we're in the 30's. Together, WE will MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!"

A Politico/Morning Consult poll in October found 46 percent of voters believe the news media fabricates news stories about Trump and his administration. The survey has a margin of error of 2.5 percentage points.

And a majority of registered voters said Trump is not honest (58 percent), does not have good leadership skills (59 percent) or care about average Americans (59 percent), is not level headed (65 percent), strong person (58 person) or intelligent (55 percent) and does not share their values (62 percent).
