A national poll released Wednesday by Quinnipiac University found that 56 percent of the respondents disapproved of Trump's job performance, compared to 38 percent who approved. It has a margin of error of 3 percentage points.
The newest poll, conducted October 5-10, showed 55 percent of voters felt Trump is not fit to serve as president, in contrast to the 43 percent who believe he is.
American voters are divided on Trump's handling of the economy, the poll says, as 48 percent approve and 46 percent disapprove.
"Trump is continually tweeting; I know what he's doing, and I understand why he's doing it, and his motives are pure; don't misunderstand".
American voters were nearly equally divided on Trump's handling of the economy, with 48 percent giving him high marks and 46 percent disapproving. While 61% said he is a strong person, 56% said he isn't honest, 59% said he doesn't have good leadership skills, and 67% said he isn't level-headed.
"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. "They remain troubled by the president's competence, but see the economy booming along under his stewardship". Pence walked out of a Colts game after players from the San Francisco 49ers knelt during the anthem in a display orchestrated by Trump. Trump, who has called for National Football League owners to fire players for kneeling during "The Star-Spangled Banner", appears to be one of those people.
Limbaugh's comments came after Trump tweeted on Wednesday suggesting NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was demanding players stand for the national anthem, following a number of players taking a knee to protest police brutality against African Americans.
