Poll Finds Voters Don’t Approve of Trump’s Actions

President Donald Trump continues to make history. This time, however, he is not likely to enjoy the results.

A group called Public Policy Polling sent a survey to registered voters at the end of January. 725 people participated, and the survey asked preferences for Trump or Former President Barack Obama, as well as questions regarding Trump’s policies. Results show that 40 percent of voters want to impeach President Trump and 52 percent wish Obama was still in office. They also show that while 49 percent of voters disapprove of Trump’s job performance, 52 percent have an unfavorable opinion of him.

Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling, said a newly elected president is at his or her peak of popularity this soon after inaugurations.

“Donald Trump’s making history once again with a sizeable share of voters already wanting to impeach him,” he said. “And a majority of voters wishing they could have Barack Obama back.”

Voters’ discontent with President Trump appears to stem with his recent actions in regards to his administration and policy change. 49 percent of voters oppose the immigration order and 52 percent think the order is a Muslim ban. Furthermore, 65 percent of people are against a Muslim Ban.

“Americans think last week’s executive order is a Muslim ban and they don’t like it,” Debnam said. “And beyond that, they think the order was executed in an incompetent fashion.”

Aside from the executive order, voters also have controversial views of President Trump’s Adviser, Steve Bannon. With Bannon’s ties to Breitbart News and his openly anti-Semitic agenda, many feel he should not be in the administration. Accordingly, only 19 percent of voters approve of Bannon favorably and think he belongs in the National Security Council.

As far as the wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, 54 percent of voters oppose its construction. Similarly, 50 percent of voters oppose a 20 percent import tax on Mexican goods.

More statistics about various orders and policies are visible on the report’s press release.
